On Friday, September 8, the entire Van Schaick community celebrated the beginning of a new school year, learning the four Bs: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be A HERO. Students toured all areas of the building as teachers taught them behavior expectations. Students also learned about Growth Mindset and the ways growth mindset will be incorporated into the school environment throughout the year.

There’s also a new mascot friend joining PAWS (the tiger cub), the YETI! Yeti’s main job is to reminds students to never say and think, "I can't" but to instead, say and think, "I can't YET!"

A special thank you to Ms. Corbett for making Van Schaick’s Yeti head, to Ryan Goergen for being the DJ, and to the Van Schaick PTO and PBIS committees.
