We also have a "virtual calming room" and our student sign-in sheet available. If you click on the pictures or the words next to them, they will take you to links with that information.

New Pirate P.R.I.D.E Positive Referrals
Once a month this school year, our teachers will be nominating students who they feel have done something to represent a quality of Pirate P.R.I.D.E. This means they demonstrate Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Determination, or Equity. Our goal for this year is for this recognition to take place once a month as we eventually make it a more common occurrence.
