Bulletin Boards & Student Work

Room bulletin boards and hallways are a very important teaching tool and should reflect subject and content. Bulletin boards should consist of quality student work samples with the objective/standard and student expectation posted. Posted work should be updated by the fifth week of each grading period. Please ensure our student's hard work and evidence of learning is on display NLT Friday.

Culture Focus: Dolphin Teachers Build Relationships (Key Action 3)

When we operationalized our Mission, we decided one concrete set of teacher behaviors were that,

Dolphin Teachers Build Relationships by


  • Providing positive narration and precise praise to scholars
  • Involving scholars in behavioral and academic goal setting, celebrating growth and collaboratively problem-solving barriers
  • Living our norms and use them to guide decision making.




As the end of the first six weeks is soon upon us, these teacher behaviors are super important. In the classroom and the hallways, let's all remember to focus on narrating positive behavior. As we analyze our data, let's remember to both share the data with our scholars and involve them in setting goals for growth and improvement.
