Baden Powell students were surprised to find out that today was not just an ordinary fire drill! The students had an unexpected visit from Kyla Groeneveld (School and Community Supervisor) and Deirdre Hill (PAL Consultant/Trainer) from Orange County Department of Ed. and was surprised with the announcement that Baden Powell won the 2012-2013 Outstanding PAL® Program Award! Through the leadership of the PAL Advisors: Debbie Varon, Stacy Bugaren, and Kristin Sauter, help make the PAL program an integral part of the school. PAL students are involved in teams such as Peer-helping Team, Game Team, Conflict Management Team, Anti-Bullying Team, etc. to build on their strengths and acquire leadership skills.
Right afterwards, there was ANOTHER unexpected surprise...but this time, it was for a very dedicated staff member, Debbie Varon, who won the 2012-2013 Outstanding PAL® Advisor Award!
"I really am only as good as the students that participate." –Debbie Varon
