Shining Sharks / Student of the Month

Schenk Sharks

Shining SharksStudents are often given “Shining Sharks” by their teachers when they are showing these qualities: Safe, Helpful, A Learner, Respectful and Responsible, and Kind. Every month one student from each class is chosen as Student of the Month. To earn this honor, students must be a “shining shark” and leader in their classroom.

End Of The Year Picnic

School families and staff come together for this end of the year picnic featuring outside activities like a water balloon toss, an obstacle course, races, community performances, and the Schenk Scramble! This is one of our students’ favorite days of the year!


PBS stands for Positive Behavior Support. The goal of PBS is creating safer and effective schools through community building and learning problem solving strategies for conflict resolution. It is a school-wide approach to educating all children using research-based behavior support systems. It includes school-wide procedures for teaching behavioral expectations and processes for decision making. Appropriate behaviors are recognized and celebrated through classroom and school-wide celebrations.

Field Trips

Whether it's walking to nearby Olbrich Botanical Gardens or a trip to the State Capital, Schenk students are always on the move.
