Good afternoon families!
We had a great “official” first week of school! It has been great seeing our students in person each day! We finished our Culture Camp this week and our students are working super hard on meeting our high expectations that we have in our building. Teachers created robust and engaging activities for students and they had a blast! Culture drives everything that we do so it is critical that culture is strong in each classroom. Please make sure to ask your child what the expectations are in his/her classroom and what they are doing to get their Dojo Points/Dollars each day. We use Class Dojo to reward our students each day. Students get a minimum of 5 points each day and are able to earn additional points/dollars for going above and beyond. We connect these ideal behaviors with our key pillars. (Ignite, Inspire, Empower, Lead).
On Thursday, we started instruction in all of our classrooms. It was great seeing students push themselves to master key foundational concepts. You will see that a tracker (located in take home folder) went home on Friday and it will include important academic information for the week as well as behavior updates each week. Please read the student handbook to see what our Positive Behavior Management System looks like in our building. Culture is everything and we focus on recognizing the positive behaviors that we see each day. We do hold super high expectations for our students and practice these skills each day. 🙂
We have a lot coming up over the next couple of weeks so please mark your calendars!
Please read over carefully. 🙂
Reach out if you need anything at all!
