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!!!
