@New Hope #kodiakroar 9.19.16

School wide PBIS is not about controlling students, it's about empowering them. Last week, we had our first walk through for our PBIS Initiative. Over the next few weeks, we will share more information with you about that visit. We will also look at data from our first month of school and see what gains we have made or what areas we should readjust.

One thing is for sure! We have to completely buy in to the initiative to make it work.


Just a few reminders:

  • Teach the Expectations everyday
  • Use the NATURAL OPPORTUNITIES to teach the school expectations
  • Remind students of the expectations in the hallway before they leave for connections and lunch.
  • After 6 weeks in the school year, start submitting forms to the office so we can get true data in SWISS. Remember, we are only entering what we consider major violations right now. We will talk about when we should start entering minors. If it goes in Infinite Campus, it will go in SWIS.

Science Class Has Fun Eating Their Project

Mrs. Fernander's 7th grade science class spent time last week working on their Incredible Edible Cell. In 7th grade Science, "we created models of cells, including cell structures (nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, cell wall, chloroplasts, lysosome, and mitochondria) and described each of their functions in the cell."

Cross Country Trail is Open!

Thursday, September 15 was a great day for New Hope Middle School. We were able to host the athletic league at our first cross country event. The trail was made possible by a lot of hard work from the community. Mr. Morrison's classes worked last year and this year to help with the trail. Coach Sell, Melissa Jones, Angie Brown, Ambyr Gallegly and family, Eric Patterson, and many many others were involved. The trail was made financially possible by a grant from FUEL UP TO PLAY FOR 60. Angie Brown, WCS Nutrition Director, led the grant process.
