The Steered Straight vision is that every adolescent will hear the message of reality that the consequences of drug use and involvement in gangs and crime greatly outweigh the disillusioned, instant gratification they perceive it to bring.

All staff and students are invited to attend

My "Exciting Educational Moments" board allows me to identify students who have accomplished any of the following:

*Students who have gone above and beyond in their work.

*Students who, until now, have been doing minimal or no work.

*Students who take a lesson or topic, and ask a thought provoking question.

*Students who think outside the box.

*Students who independently help a peer with a lesson.

Exciting Educational Moments is also a:

*Behavior Mod Board

*Reward for positive educational moments that occur throughout my classes.



*Visual way to recognize students for doing something in a particular class that makes me "excited educationally".

This is a way for students to recognize and understand their positive accomplisments. We share the names on the board with Capital Staff and Supervisors, and use these students as examples of positive behavior and actions in class. Check back soon for the names of students who have earned this honor!

There will be a small charge for each service ( prices are listed on forms, forms are in office) and students will only be permitted in during their shop time and only with a signed permission slip.

Principal Jermaine Kamau

The narrative on education both public and private is changing as we speak. We can no longer solely use traditional and conservative techniques to produce the next generation of thinkers. We've got to advance our practice and raiser our standards. What we do for our students matters and what we need to be doing is giving them the best. The best schools, the best teachers, the best resources and the best of ourselves. That's why I got into this business. I like to cultivate success and watch it grow.

Knighton's Notes

*If students arrive at your classroom with a backpack, please escort them so that they may put it in their their locker.

*If a student takes out their cell phone, please call support staff to have it confiscated.

*If you are signing incident reports, please remember to do so in blue ink.

* Have a wonderful day on-purpose!
