6th Grade Book Tasting Event

6th graders spent some time exploring different books and genres during reading class. They also got to enjoy some snacks while trying to decide what book they would like to read for book club.

Dr. Seuss Week Dress-Up Days

The first week of March was Dr. Seuss/Read Across America Week. Some of our 6th graders participated in the dress up days to help celebrate.

PBIS at USC Elementary

What is PBIS?

PBIS is a researched-based framework for implementing systems, practices, and data to improve student achievement. USC has been a PBIS school since 2009.

USC Elementary implemented the Virtual Golden Ticket in February 2021. We use Golden Tickets to positively acknowledge our students when we catch them showing their Rebel Rights - Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. We now have a physical and digital way to positively recognize our students meeting our behavior expectations!

Check out some of our Virtual Golden Tickets from the month of March!
