Focus Room Data

On average, at Kentucky Trail, we have 28 students utilizing the Focus Room per month. This is a great average. 94% of Kentucky Trail students respond to the positive reinforcement and safe, structured classroom environment that you all provide each day.

Keep recognizing the positive behavior in your students. Remember, you get what you recognize!
As you review your grade level specific focus room data, what can you infer?

Shout - outs!

I would be remiss if I didn't take a moment to thank Rebecca and Charlotte! They have done a remarkable job removing snow and making it safe for the office staff to work this week. Not only did they do a phenomenal job, it was done in the freezing cold with a positive attitude. THANK YOU, ladies!

Guess Who? - Intermediate Staff Edition [A REPEAT]

Since teachers and staff had a lovely SnowDayCation, here are last weeks' mystery staff members again. You have another full week to snoop and figure out who these ! The clues are below:

Staff Member 1: This person won an award in junior high for being the first to complete their skateboard pillow sewing project. This individual has lived through a tornado and an earthquake, but not in the same year. This person didn't start talking until they were three years old, then went to speech classes through second grade. They more than make up for it now.

Staff Member 2: This individual won "Miss Photogenic" in a pageant at 16 years old. They were notoriously late to school because they would wake up early to wake board.
This person didn't get their license at 16 because they were too scared to drive.


Since we missed our first Fabulously Fun Friday in February, we will celebrate on Marvelous Monday, February 10th. There will be yummy appetizers in the lounge to snack on.
