A Message from the Office

Dear families,

A peek into the 1st grade...

We recently celebrated the 100th day of school! 2nd graders were able to work with each teacher on a different 100th day of school activity. Mrs. Gallardo had the students draw a picture of themselves of what they will look like when they are 100 years old. Mrs. Fotheringham had the students make gumball machines and add 100 “gumballs”. Ms. Eberly had each student string 100 fruit loops on a necklace. The students had a blast and the teachers enjoyed getting to work with all the different 1st graders!

Concert and Curriculum Night

On March 15, grades 2-4 got a chance to show their loved ones how talented they are. Each grade put on a great concert for their parents and also went to their classrooms to show off things they have been working on. Don't miss our next Concert and Curriculum Night for grades K-1 on April 27.

McTeacher's Night

A big thank-you to all who came to McDonald's on March 14 for McTeacher's Night! There was a great turnout from families, teachers and staff. A portion of the proceeds McDonald's earned between 5:00-8:00 PM will go to our school for school supplies and field trips. Last time we got a check for over $700! We can't wait to see how much we get this time.

At our last PTO meeting on March 17, we had a presentation about the tools our school uses for positive reinforcement - PAX and PBIS. PAX is a set of strategies taught to students that help them learn important self-management skills while collaborating to make their classroom a peaceful and productive learning environment. This is achieved through the PAX Good Behavior Game. A visual chart is created by the teacher and students that include both expected behavior and unwanted behavior. Students play the game throughout the day when they practice their self-management and conflict resolution skills.

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports and is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
