On May 2, more than 90 seniors “took over” for teachers, administrators, clerical staff, the guidance office and the deans office during Addison Trail’s eighth annual Senior Takeover Day. All seniors were eligible to participate, as long as they were in good academic standing and received permission from the respective staff member. The seniors coordinated meetings, ran errands, helped teach classes and more.

On May 16, the Addison Trail Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) team hosted its annual end-of-year barbecue. The PBIS program was implemented in fall 2007 to teach students expected behaviors, rules and what it means to be a Blazer. The goal of the program is to develop a positive school climate through creating common language and standards. The barbecue is a time to celebrate improved behaviors at Addison Trail and is an opportunity to communicate behavioral data for the year not only to the staff, but to the students as well. Throughout the school year, the program recognizes acts of “Blazer Pride” with a personalized card and a cookie. Staff, students and community members volunteered during the barbecue, and administrators took to the grill to cook up a tasty lunch for participants.
