PBIS implementation is part of achieving our school mission. Our expectations are to Be Safe, Be Kind and Be Ready. Students have been earning positive referrals when they show positive behavior. We will be starting Lockmar Loot. Students will earn "Loot" when they show these expectations. Our Lockmar Store will be opening in January. There is a sign up below if you would be able to come in and help in the store for students to shop and a link to our Amazon wish list. Thank you for all of your support with the chocolate fundraiser and Texas Roadhouse gift cards as we are raising money for items in our store.

Youth Truth Survey is a time where we can hear our student voices. This survey will be taken in January by our students in Grades 3-6. Parents can view questions in the front office. Please contact Administration if you are interested in coming into view.
Thrive by Five
BPS Thrive by Five is an Early Literacy initiative to raise awareness of Early Literacy and partnership between educators and Health Care providers. This partnership has been able to create information and a child's first book at birth. The website has information to start an educational journey early. Help to support this program by sharing the information to make an impact on Early Literacy.
Survey for Project Tomorrow's Speak Up
Brevard Public Schools is once again joining other districts around the country in surveying teachers, parents, and students through Project Tomorrow's Speak Up Survey. The Speak Up Research Project is a national research project that assists education leaders in including the voices of students, faculty, parents, and the community in annual and long-term planning regarding the use of technology for learning. These results are shared with local, state, and national policymakers and utilized to make strategic decisions about technology purchases and instructional technology integration within BPS.

A Glimpse into Kindergarten
Hello! We are your kindergarten team. We are made up of Mrs. Waterbury, Mrs. Ellis, Ms. Johnson, and Mrs.Briggs. We are so excited for the month of December. During this month we virtually travel around the world and learn about the holidays they celebrate. This is a special time for students to learn and appreciate different cultures.
Have you heard the great news? All kindergarten and 1st grade students have one to one iPads. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students. This will give them new learning experiences that were not available to them in the past. We can wait to see how far our students will soar this year!
