We will be implementing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in addition to our CARE (Community, Attitude, Respect, and Empathy) philosophy.
*Family - Cliff (my husband), Liam (2 yr. old), Paisley (1 month) and Snowball
*I love to go camping, to play sports, go to the gym and hang out with my friends and family.
PBIS focuses on setting common expectations which are followed in every area of the school. Our three expectations of Be Safe, Teamwork, and Be Responsible are clearly defined in the classrooms, hallways, bathrooms, lunch, playground, and assemblies.
STAR Time - Once a month all school STAR time
Mixed grade level groups
All students would be involved in the same lesson
All staff would be involved
Days/Times would rotate
Weekly classroom STAR time remains (3 of the 4 weeks a month)

We also have strategies in place to address situations when expected behavior is not demonstrated in a particular setting

Personalized Learning
We use a workshop model for Literacy and Math which allows us to individualize instruction for all students
Students will set goals based on expected outcomes and measure their progress along the way.
Students utilize technology on a daily basis to access resources and meet their individual needs

Each grade level has a half hour time, four days per week, when students are grouped based on their specific needs. May focus on reading, writing, math, or behavior.
Some students may receive an intervention in an area that has been identified as a need. Others may participate in an extension activity.
Teachers meet weekly and use assessments to plan activities and monitor student progress. They then make changes to the groups or activities as necessary.

Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset

Encourage students to take risks and not be afraid of failure.
We will focus on praising effort
Intelligence is not fixed, everyone can make growth.

Inclusive Practice...
Inclusion means educating all students, full time in general education settings, regardless of their needs or skill level. Inclusive practices involve the adaptation of classroom activities and structures to facilitate student access and engagement.
