The Great Kindness Challenge

The Mindset for November is 100% Accountable. This mindset teaches the importance of being 100% accountable or responsible for our own happiness and success. Not 60%, not 70%, but 100%. This means we take ownership for ALL of our choices and actions: the things we’ve done or haven’t done, the words we speak and how we treat others. This can be considered challenging.

100% responsibility starts with each person. We are free to choose our attitude, our happiness, our success, and how hard we try. During the week of November 14 - 17th, we will have a kindness challenge with daily dress-up themes.

NCISD | Demographic Study | Sep. 2022

OES House System

The Why of Houses

Develop a system where EVERY student has a place to belong, be supported, and be successful. 7 Houses, 1 Community!

We are all a part of the Rocket House. The Rocket House will be divided into 7 smaller houses, with students and staff members randomly assigned to each house. Each house will be represented by one of the 7 Mindsets listed below:

House Points

Students can earn points for their House by:

  • Following BLAST behavior expectations - Be responsible, Lead by example, Act responsibly, Safety first, Teamwork matters
  • Acts of Kindness
  • Collaboration
  • Mindset Champion
  • Attendance
  • Quality Work

Every week we will reveal a House winner at our Friday House Party. Random rewards will be given throughout the year for the winning Houses. (Extra recess, popsicles, dance party, etc.)

We can use your help by talking with your child about expectations at home!!!

Finding Report Cards in Skyward

Reminder, you can use Family Access in Skyward to keep track of your student's grades. Canvas Grades only gives you information about individual assignments. If you want to check on your student's overall grade, you will find that information in Skyward. You can put in a Help Desk Ticket request if you need help remembering your log-in information.
