We're a PAX school.
PAX means peace and harmony; it means productivity and order; it means safety and well-being.
PAX means peace of mind because each of us is kind and productive -- we're positive with each other and we get our work done well.
We better the world and better ourselves.
We are happier when we act with PAX: kindness, helpfulness, doing our work. We ask to help others if they are stuck on work; we share a pencil; we say, "Good Morning."
Sometimes we forget our PAX and we spleem. Spleem is something we don't want. It's pushing or crumpling up our work when we get stuck.
So we play the PAX game to practice PAX. We know exactly what work to do and exactly what behaviors to show. We sit in teams. We time ourselves. The teacher sees someone throwing a paper airplane on the Red Team and says, "Spleem, Red Team." That team gets a mark; more than three spleems and that team loses. If teams win, someone chooses from Granny Wacky Prizes and we do the prize. An example prize is to make paper airplanes and fly them to a landing spot for one minute.
It's a fun way to practice doing the "right thing." The "right thing" is being kind, safe, productive, respectful -- we discuss what is expected before the game; after the game we learn what spleems were made so we learn how to win the next time.
