The Shady Brook Vision and Mission Statements

Knowledge Informs and Determines Success for Students


The mission of Shady Brook Elementary is to educate all students for success today and tomorrow.

CHAMPS Reminder. . .Week Two

As we move into the second week of this three week countdown until Christmas Break, the second CHAMPS strategy to keep in mind is the Count and Chart technique. With this strategy, you will be able to count, chart and illustrate to students any overall, not individual, undesired behavior you are experiencing in the classroom, or common areas. This is a great visual for students to see in order to reduce misbehaviors through raising their awareness.

Testing at a Glance:

Action Required for all teachers: I wanted to let you know that our required ELPS fall awareness training is online this year. This course is required for all teachers. You will find the course under HEB curriculum, inside of the training tab. The enrollment key for this course is heb123. Individually, you will need to watch the training video, complete the quiz (with a grade of 100), print the associated certificate and turn in to Clarence. When turning in your certificate, you will need to sign the Eduphoria sign-in sheet that will be located outside of Clarence’s door. This is to be completed by December 11th.

News you need to know!

Classroom Websites -

As I mentioned during our August PD, I am trying to do a better job of keeping our campus page of the website updated. I fell behind a little bit, but finally got caught up. I noticed that some of the classroom websites needed some updating. Take a moment to look over the tabs of your classroom website and make sure that all of the information under all tabs is current with the most up-to-date information. Thank you!

Holiday Parties - Parents will have to use their id to check in using the Positive Proof system in order to attend the Holiday Parties. Please let parents know as they are asking about the party so that they are not surprised by the line to check in. Thanks!
