Recognizing Positive Behavior - The Power of Attention means "What we focus on we get more of"

Cadott Elementary Staff recognizes the importance to applaud students when they display positive character traits. This week we would like to recognize:

Ms. Schroeder recognized Gavin for stepping up and being a leader. Gavin takes on extra work to make the Daily Buzz program richer. Recently, he completed a feature piece to advertise our class project and did a great job!

Ms. Schroeder recognized Ally for showing kindness. Every day in math class Ally pulls out a chair and places it where a paraprofessional needs it.

Ms. Schroeder recognized Anthony for always being willing to help others. He never hesitates, he just does what is right and kind without giving it a thought.

- Mrs. Goettl and Mr. Spaeth

Positive Character Traits we are looking for are:

  • Self Awareness
  • Self Management
  • Social Awareness
  • Relationship Skills
  • Goal Directed Behavior
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Decision Making
  • Optimistic Thinking

These traits are learned and nurtured through our adult modeling, direct instruction, and feedback.

Teen Technology Use and Misuse

This presentation will cover a broad overview of cyberbullying, including issues parents, educators, and teens need to know about how youth use and misuse technology to cause harm to their peers. The presentation will define and provide examples of cyberbullying and discuss the role of parents in preventing and responding to inappropriate online behaviors. It will also describe many of the online environments popular among adolescents today and strategies to use to make sure they are used safely and responsibly.

Dr. Justin Patchin is a professor of criminal justice at the University of WisconsinEau Claire. He received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University. Since 2002 he has been exploring the intersection of teens and technology, with particular focus on cyberbullying and social networking. He travels around the United States and abroad training educators, counselors, law enforcement officers, parents, and youth on how to prevent and address the consequences of cyberbullying. Dr. Patchin is Co-Director of the Cyberbullying Research Center (www.cyberbullying.org) and has written eight books and numerous articles on adolescent behaviors online. His co-authored book: Bullying beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying was named Educator Book of the Year by ForeWord reviews. A book for teens Words Wound: Delete Cyberbullying and Make Kindness Go Viral was published in 2013 and his most recent book is Bullying Today: Bullet Points and Best Practices (2016). He has presented at the White House and the FBI Academy, and has appeared on CNN, NPR, and in the New York Times to discuss issues related to teens use and misuse of technology.

Sensory Path Update

Since the start of the school year our sensory path has been well utilized by a lot of your student body. With as much love as the path was getting our display case was lacking that same upbeat positive safe place environment. With a little help from Mrs. Hladilek this space has been transformed to a beautiful safe place for all of our students to enjoy.
