December Guidance

December's classroom guidance will focus on the third habit of the Leader in Me Program:

HABIT THREE: Put First Things First.

Work First, Then Play.

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.

Guidance will take place December 7-December 11, 2015.

If you still need to sign up please visit this webpage:

As a side note, I have been incredibly impressed with each class this year during guidance. They have been incredibly well behaved, engaged and coming up with thoughtful answers. It's a sure sign of the PBIS strategies you are teaching in your classrooms. Good job!!

Maryville is continuing to see a major decrease in behavior referrals for the current school year. At the close of November, students have earned a total of 20 referrals. The average for the past five years, August- November was 39 referrals. Please see the charts and data below for more information on specifics.

This is a huge improvement from previous years when bus referrals were typically 50% or more of all our referrals.

Morning bus rides are documented at 8 AM and afternoon bus rides are 4 PM. Typically, the afternoon bus rides have accrued the most referrals of any time slot.

Ideally, you would like for the majority of your students to earn 1 or less referral for the school year. We only have three students who have earned more than 1 referral so far this year. Of these students, one is in special education for behavior concerns and another is in counseling for PTSD.

When PBIS and the ABRI team looks at the triangles above, the goal is that less than 5% of our students are in the red zone. The green zone are the students for which our general behavior expectations and classroom procedures are working for (should be around 80%). The yellow area should about 15% of our student population and these students need more intensive instruction. The red area are the students who need specialized designed 1-on-1 instruction. For 2015-2016 we currently do not have any students in the red!!

K-PREP Training Materials

You are required to read the Inclusions of Special Populations and Administration Code Manuals every year. They are available on KDE's website if you would like to read them prior to the K-PREP testing window.

Growth Mindset

It's a great website/blog on teaching. I would imagine if you spend some time exploring you'd find a lot of helpful things on there.

Ways to Sabotage Your Classroom Management

I really shouldn't even post this because I think everyone is doing a great job. I say it all the time and I mean it, I don't think I would be a very good classroom teachers. I am impressed every day by the things I see you do!
