PBIS: “Spotlighting” I. Arauz in Ms. Darin’s Kindergarten Class

The Kindergarten students at CVCS, have been spending time in class discussing what it means to “respect” others. We have been practicing being a good friend, sharing, taking turns, following the classroom rules and following all given directions at the learning center and during our class connect sessions.

I. Arauz has done a great job demonstrating all of these “characteristics” of respect when she is in class at the learning center on Tuesday mornings. I have seen I. Arauz include her peers in activities, loan her pencil to a classmate who did not have one, and reach out to a friend in need. She is polite and uses her manners. When Isabel wants to share her “wonderful” ideas in class or ask a question, I never has to remind I. Arauz to raise her hand.

I. Arauz also takes great pride in her work. She puts forth her best effort and even tries her hardest to sound out the words she wants to write. I am so proud of her hard work in class this fall! Our mission at CVCS states that we want our students to “flourish as an individual and citizen in a diverse, global society,” and I. Arauz truly represents how she is continuing to learn, grow, and become the best student she can be at CVCS!

It is with pleasure, that I recognize I. Arauz for our school’s first weekly, PBIS Student/Learning Coach “spotlight.”
