This week, we called our students together for an assembly to share our school wide behavior data and present our behavior goal for the month of November. The goal for the month of November, is for students to focus on being respectful in the classroom. Students were able to share their ideas and hear from our PBIS Ambassadors about what this looks like in the classroom. We would like students to focus on listening to and complying with adult directions the first time they are given. All classrooms are working towards earning a hot chocolate party and pajama day before Thanksgiving Break.
Besides engaging in real-life applications in math, we also need each student to be fluent with their math skills. The Director of Math and Science, Jim Vreeland, has compiled some resources that families can utilize on a daily basis to increase math fluency. Many of these sites provide students purposeful additional practice opportunities related to the content standards.
