The spirit stick initiative is a positive approach to enhancing self-esteem of school children by providing a forum that helps recognize their achievements and promote their participation in the learning environment. Spirit Sticks are small, collectible patches with a reinforced hole, enabling them to be displayed on a spirit ring that is attached to a lanyard. Order forms to purchase a spirit ring and lanyard will be going home or you may purchase from the front office.
In an effort to further enhance our Leader in Me initiative here at Wanke, our PTA will be selling two spirit sticks per month. The spirit sticks will only be available during that particular month and can be ordered via an order form. We encourage parents to use these spirit sticks as an incentive for their child to exhibit the "7 Habits of Happy Kids"... being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, putting first thing first, thinking win win, seeking first to understand then to be understood, synergizing, and sharpening their saw.
