Kid Friendly Programs

Several programs at Burley Glenwood help kids increase their Developmental Assets, building on students’ positive efforts and good qualities.  As these activities have increased in number and participation, we documented gains in academic achievement, and disciplinary issues have decreased.  Many opportunities provide children with ways to be recognized, to be leaders, contribute to the school in meaningful positions, and to make good decisions. 

Accelerated Reader

 “A.R.” is a motivational reading program, aimed to encourage success for every student at his or her current reading level, from non-readers to highly proficient readers. Based on individualized reading objectives, students receive incentives as they reach levels toward their reading point goals. Recognition is given within grade levels, as well as school-wide.

Safety Patrol

Safety Patrol Guards are 5th grade students who work in teams of two or three and have the important job of taking care of our students while using the crosswalk, or waiting outside classrooms until it is time for pupils to enter. The Safety Patrol Program is affiliated with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Department, with a deputy contact that trains the guards at the beginning of each school year, and is available to consult as needed.
