Bronc Pride Activity
Sunridge Middle School is committed to the principles of school-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). As such we seek to maximize student success through positive relationships and proactive instruction that teaches and recognizes students that are ready to learn, respectful and responsible. As part of this, we teach and reinforce school-wide expectations in coordination with systemic rewards and recognitions including Bronc Bucks, No Tardy Parties, dances, Bronc Pride Activity Hours, and the Sunridge Snack Shack.
One reward that students always look forward to and work hard to qualify for is our Bronc Pride Activity Hours. These exceptional activities, held three or four times throughout the year, recognize student efforts in academic responsibility. In the weeks leading up to an activity, students recommend activity options that are hosted by teachers, and then sign up for them in their advisory classes. Popular past options include: capture the flag, dodgeball, basketball activities, Minute-To-Win-It, indoor soccer, cookie decorating, computer games, S’more Science, drawing, holiday crafts, wood shop art projects, Just Dance, karaoke, and trivia specific to Harry Potter, Star Wars, Disney, and music. On the day of the event, we run a special bell schedule that allows for about an hour of activity time at the end of the day. Students who don’t qualify because of missing assignments or the need to retake assessments, are assigned study halls where even there they can earn their way to limited time in an activity.
Indeed, these hours not only provide some motivation for many of our kids to be responsible, but they are also a fun and memorable experience for staff and students alike.
We also just held a (Nearly) No Tardy Party for the first semester. Students who received no more than two tardies the entire semester received a root beer float during lunchtime. Over 400 of our students qualified!
