CUBS' CONNECTION

SEPTEMBER

Back in the Swing of School!

It is so wonderful that our students have returned for a new year packed full of learning and fun. I hope that everyone has settled back into a routine that works for your family and sets our students up for success at school.


We had our beginning of the year assembly to welcome everyone and a reminder about our school expectations. Our students have been so welcoming of the many new students we have this year. If you are new, WELCOME to you too! If I have not met you, please stop me and introduce yourself. I am often walking around parking lots and playground in the mornings and afternoons.


Thank you to all who were able to attend our Back to School night! We hope it was informative of our classes and programs.

GET TO KNOW OUR STAFF!

WHAT ARE KUDOS?

You have probably heard about or seen 'Kudos' from our students.


We are a Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) school. This is a school-wide system of supports that promote proactive strategies of defining, teaching, and modeling appropriate and expected behaviors all around our school. When students demonstrate the expected behavior, adults may verbally acknowledge them and give them a KUDO. Kudos are collected and redeemed weekly from a menu of privileges or rewards in each classroom. PBIS is designed to support all students and a positive school climate.


Our Cubs' Code of Conduct is BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL, and BE RESPONSIBLE!


Please help us in reinforcing these behaviors everywhere our students go! More information about our tiers of support for students will be shared in future newsletters.

PTC IS FOR EVERYONE!

When parents and teachers work together, we can achieve so much more for all of our students! We are grateful to our VVPTC who work selflessly to supplement many programs that make Valley View the amazing school it it! Join us at the upcoming meeting, Monday, Sept 17 at 3:00 at school and get involved!
