The 8 Habits Behavior Wheel!
We are always looking for ways to improve in the way that things are done. With that being said we are changing the current structure of our clip charts. Starting on Monday, September 30th we are making the shift to an 8 Habits Wheel to fit more in line with The Leader In Me and our school-wide expectations. Students will now clip around the wheel to the various habits that they are using or showing. This should help tie the action of the habit to the positive clip movement on the wheel. Students will still be able to clip off of the wheel onto a staff member’s shirt, whether that be a teacher, counselor, staff member, secretary or principal. We are trying to emphasize the positive behavior of our students. There has been a lot of research that has shown that drawing attention to the positive behavior of students helps to create a more lasting, positive change in their overall behavior. When your students get home after an amazing day at school they will not have ended the day on a specific “color” like they used to with the clip chart. So, instead of asking them what color they ended on, now the conversation can switch to “What habits did you use today?” Thank you all for being such an important part of Heritage Elementary!
A Reminder from Mr. Rice
As the weather changes and starts to get colder outside, I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of our procedures for parent pick-up and drop off.
AM Arrival 9:00 am to 9:15 am
For any students that are dropped off to school in the AM, please use the parent drop off line.
If your student arrives after the start time, you must come in with your student and sign them in.
AM Kindergarten Pick-Up 12:15 pm
Bus riders released first.
Car riders released next.
WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE that AM Kindergarteners are NOT picked up by walking up to the door.
END of Day School Dismissal 4:05pm
Car riders will be released first. Walkers will be dismissed after the car riders.
Bus Riders will be dismissed when car riders and walkers are all accounted for.
This is a friendly reminder of our arrival/dismissal procedures. I want to thank everyone for their patience and attention to these procedures. Our goal is to be as quick as possible while maintaining safety for everyone involved. Thank you all for helping to make Heritage Elementary an amazing place to be.
