November 2019

November is a time to be thankful!

During this season of thankfulness, let us remember to tell others how much we appreciate them. I am thankful for the wonderful community of learners, both adults and children, that we have at Tri-County R-7! And what a great, caring community we have!

One way our community supports our students is through the PIE (Partners in Education) donations. These donations supply our students with incentives to learn! Each month we give three prizes to students who have met their monthly reading or math goal.

Last month our prizes were supplied by Jamesport Bar & Grill.

Tri-County Students

High Five for Positive Office Referrals!

As some of you have experienced, calls from the principal's office don't always indicate a problem. In the elementary building we use a system called PBS for managing expectations. PBS stands for Positive Behavior Supports. One aspect of PBS is a Positive Office Referral, which means a staff member noticed a student who when "above and beyond" our expectations. Next the staff member fills out a 'blue' form describing what the student did. These students come to the office on Friday for recognition, which includes a phone call home where Mrs. Cox gets to brag on them!

Students write their name on a "hand" to put on the bulletin board each time they get a positive office referral! Each 'hand' in the picture represents a student who received a positive office referral.
