Zero Gravity Jump Rope Club
Team Moderators: Sandy Pope and Melissa Segreti
Little Oak's Jump Rope Club began over fifteen years ago and the team continues to be an integral part of our school. The team received the "Making the Grade" award from the Drew Brees Foundation in 2007. Zero Gravity, formerly the Firecrackers, will meet regularly to practice basic jump roping skills and tricks, as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle. The jumpers work with each other to improve their athletic skills, foster relationships, and learn the importance of commitment and persistence. Students who are interested in joining the club must complete an application and permission form, attend the workshop, and try out before a panel of judges. If selected, Zero Gravity members must maintain a "C" or better average in all subjects and are expected to maintain appropriate behavior at all times. Administrative discipline referrals may warrant removal from the Zero Gravity Club. Practices will take place on Wednesdays until 3:30 beginning in October. Practice dates will be announced in advance. Zero Gravity Club members are also expected to attend all practices. If a jumper misses more than three practices, they are dismissed from the team.

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBiS) Student Ambassadors
Moderator: Allie Gressaffa
PBiS is a prevention-oriented practice, focusing on positive behavior tactics. School personnel use evidence-based practices, improve implementation of those practices, and maximize academic and social behavior outcomes. PBiS supports the success of ALL students.
To best serve the needs of our students, each homeroom teacher selects two students (one for the first semester and one for the second semester) to represent their class. These selected students are called PBiS Ambassadors. When we receive new students, PBiS Ambassadors greet the student(s) at the front office and take them on a campus tour. They also provide support until the student has adjusted to his or her new school. Ambassadors meet monthly during the school day to discuss student concerns, new ideas, and best practices.
