Neighborhood Celebration

October's Winner

Contentment Peak (the Green Neighborhood) won the Neighborhood competition for October! Remember, Neighborhoods earn points by collecting "Gotchas," students having perfect attendance, and turning in community service forms. Neighborhoods lose points if a student has an office referral.

The data shows that our Neighborhoods are providing motivation for our students and helping them move in a positive direction! Students have collected more Gotchas, turned in more community service forms, and our attendance is the best in the district!!! Also, we have had a significantly lower amount of office referrals than the first nine weeks last year!
