    Robert Treat Academy Charter School, Inc.



Action-Display-Award
Robert Treat Academy is committed to sustaining an environment that promotes compassion and camaraderie towards one another. In order to highlight kind acts between students the school has implemented a three-step Action Model for the elementary and middle school grade levels. 







Action:

 

“Bee Kind Program”
Students K-5 earn “Kindness Bee’s” for random acts of kindness and are given to them by teachers who witness it.  These deeds can be a simple as picking up a pencil for another student or as heartfelt as sharing a lunch with someone who doesn’t have one. 

 

 

 

“Pay it Forward Program”

Students 6th to 8th grade have an opportunity to earn a “Pay it Forward” slip.  A teacher who witnesses a random act of kindness by a student completes these slips. In addition, a student can also earn a slip if another classmates witnesses and tells a teacher about that’s students random act of kindness.
