Caring Staff ~ Quality Instruction ~ Purposeful Learning

Continuous Improvement through PBIS & February Super Cub Winners

With the implementation of the new Super Cub Staff Recognition program, 100% of classrooms turned in their paws in the month of January! This is just one way our PBIS leadership team is utilizing data to see how effective our school-wide implementation is going. GO CUBS!

In order to qualify to "spin the Super Cub wheel", classrooms must turn in their classroom paws monthly and support staff must have handed out their paws to students demonstrating Super Cub behavior (which have been turned in to Irene). The classrooms and support staff names are then drawn at the first faculty meeting of the month. Congrats to this month's winners!

  • Allison Dawson: Lunch from Dr. Currey
  • Room 181: Miss Kidwell - Reserved Parking Spot (back lot); Mrs. Hurst - Treasure Chest
  • Nurse Tracy: Jeans Day
  • Room 2: Mrs. Dagley - Classroom coverage; Ms. Kendall - Jeans Day; Ms. O'Hara - Treasure Chest
  • Room 118: Miss Ready - $25 Purchase Order; Mrs. Hart - Treasure Chest

As a reminder, teachers and support staff can hand out paws to any and all students for demonstrating Super Cub behavior in the hallways, playground, restroom, and MPR!
