r By Lana HiskeyrStudents at Park Elementary presented and performed at Nebo School District’s November Board Meeting.

Student leaders at Park Elementary warmly welcomed attendees to Nebo’s Board Meeting, led audience members in the Pledge of Allegiance, introduced their school, and gave a presentation on how WIGs, Wildly Important Goals, have helped them achieve success.

WIGs focus on setting attainable goals for individual students, whole classes, and even the entire school. Some of these goals include increasing reading comprehension, reading for a certain amount of time each day, writing eight-sentence paragraphs, and learning multiplication. Students create both short-term goals and long-term goals, and are praised for their small victories.

Students at Park Elementary seek to receive a “Golden Panther Paw” during the school year. Receiving a “Golden Panther Paw” means they were seen doing something good. They receive a “Golden Panther Paw” by a faculty member, and get their name written on the “Golden Panther Paw Board”. Once a row is filled with names, the students on that row get to go to a special breakfast with the principal.

Through the use of Land Trust money, Park Elementary has hired more technicians and purchased chrome books, making the ratio of students to chrome books one to one. Through the use of technology in the classroom, students have more access to reading and math resources.

Third-graders at Park Elementary sang two songs, one of which contained the lyrics, “If you don’t know where you’re going, then you won’t know where to start”, but because of the proactive use of goal setting at Park Elementary, students are traveling toward a bright future.
