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:
- Following BLAST behavior expectations - Be responsible, Lead by example, Act responsibly, Safety first, Teamwork matters
- Acts of Kindness
- Mindset Champion
- 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.
STAAR results are also now available in Skyward.
