Back In Full Swing
We are off and running with the 22-23 school year. It's wonderful to have students in the building and they're already hard at work. The beginning of the school year is dedicated to teaching students our building wide expectations, as well as giving them time to practice those expectations with our staff. Using our PBIS Matrix, which you can find below, students are learning what behaviors are expected of them and how they will be rewarded for demonstrating them. Wondering what your student is learning? Ask them!
Thank you for your support as we start the school year and as always, please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you and your student.
