Kicking Off 2020 with a Positive Attitude

The start of 2020 has been off to a great start at Imagine-Chancellor. Students and staff have come back from Winter Break with a positive attitude and focused mindset. We want to continue this positivity to ensure students are engaged and gaining the necessary academic and social-emotional skills to be successful. We encourage families to engage in meaningful conversations at home with your child(ren) about their academic goals and their understanding of the weekly character strengths highlighted through the Positivity Project activities. It is our goal for all students and staff to live out the other people matter mindset. Looking forward to continued success throughout this school year!

Positive Choices in the Cafeteria for K-5

We have kicked off a new system in the cafeteria for elementary school using Class Dojo! Every class has the opportunity to work together to earn points for staying in their seats, walking in line correctly, keeping hands and feet to selves, raising their hands if they need anything, and using kind and quiet words. Periodically throughout each month, we will be rewarding the class with the most Dojo points with prizes such as popsicles, dress down passes, lunch outside, and so much more! We are having our first celebration with the winning class to celebrate their positive choices in the café.

Congrats to January's Winning Class- Ms. Redmond (4th Grade)

Come one, Come All to 3rd-5th Grade FSA Parent Night

We are looking forward to our upcoming 3-5 grade FSA Parent Night on February 12th at 6:00pm. During this time, we invite all parents with a child in grades 3 – 5 to join us for an informational night reviewing our reading and math curriculum and assessments, including understanding the data and the expectations for the FSA. We will then split into ‘Make and Take’ breakout sessions, where you will have the opportunity to make resources to use at home that will help your child with reading, math, and FSA prep. We hope to see you there!

Building Hope and Optimism

Last week students focused on building optimism. They learned if their thinking is confident, hopeful, and positive, it will reflect in their attitudes and everyday life situations. Students made encouragement folders to motivate during testing, classwork, or just keep at home as a builder. Ms. Davis also wrote a positive message to each student.

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school.
