Positive Action Leaders



2016-2017 Positive Action Leaders (PALs)

Our Positive Action Team Leaders (PALs) are voted by their peers to represent the P.S. 101 student community. They are not only role models among their P.S. 101 peers; they also help make decisions on school wide projects.

PALs have worked on school videos during school events such as No-Name Calling week to encourage kindness in our school building and our March Make a Friend Month, to help students establish new friendships. PAls have also worked on school assemblies for Positive Action.

Our Positive Action Team Leaders have been hard at work this year!


They started a mailbox initiative and placed special "Mailboxes" in each classroom where they surveyed the students and then asked the PA for things students wanted, like recess equipment.

They are currently working on a poster contest for a "Clean Bathroom Campaign" encouraging the student body to keep the student bathrooms clean at all times. The clean bathroom contest is up and going.

The PALs are also working on reinstating the "Friendship Ambassadors" where they themselves will be Friendship Ambassadors and model how to befriend other students who are in need of a friend during recess time.
