$1000 Scholarship for Cabbage Plant!
Isaiah Martinez, fourth grader at Pinello Elementary, is the 2014 Colorado State Winner for the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program.

In the spring of 2014, Bonnie Plants delivered free cabbage plants to 272 participating schools in Colorado. Bonnie Plants received 99 class winning entries from Colorado 3rd graders. Isaiah’s cabbage was picked by the state’s Agriculture Department as the winner. As part of the program, Isaiah will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Isaiah grew a 16lb. 12 oz. cabbage named Calvin, who eventually became corned beef cabbage and cabbage rolls.

According to Bonnie Plants’ website, the Cabbage Program was created to inspire a love of vegetable gardening in young people, which seemed to work for Isaiah. He wants to plant a garden next spring and grow more vegetables and fruit.

WideField of Dreams - Travis Dumas & Carl Burgess
Travis Dumas - Janitell Junior High

Travis is a seventh grader at Janitell Junior High. This young man was picked out of thousands of students in the region to receive an award for his volunteering efforts. Travis has been volunteering for the Special Olympics for the past four years. He has been a unified partner because he wanted to help his brother Jordan, a student at Widefield High, with different events, including basketball, soccer, softball, and bowling. Travis is also a volunteer at his church. Travis' dream is to keep volunteering as an adult, and to always try new things.

PBIS & Rachel's Challenge
Combining Rachel’s Challenge and Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support

Research has shown that the implementation of punishment, especially when it is used inconsistently and in the absence of other positive strategies, is ineffective. Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important step of a student's educational experience. Our school district supports creating positive learning environments for our students. In order to support students and staff we are working to promote kindness and positive behavior. Our district has adopted both Rachel’s Challenge and PBIS. Each building is blending the two programs to represent a common belief or philosophy. The philosophy of both programs is at its core the same. We believe that the doorway to improving education is in building positive relationships with students. If a teacher builds a positive relationship with a student (emotion, passion and imagination), the chances are greater that a student will open their minds to greater academic challenges. This in turn will lead the student to a more successful academic career and will assist students in growing into successful and productive adults.
