Each child is awarded a certificate of achievement that can be redeemed at a local restaurant for ice cream sundaes. This is a home-school community cooperative relationship. In addition, we have aligned our writing program to the standards and made sure that each teacher, and each child in each grade is speaking the same writing language. Our school wide theme is One Small Thing Can Make A Difference. We are learning how to be kind to others as we live in community. Students are caught being Ã¢ÂÂgoodÃ¢ÂÂ as Ã¢ÂÂmaking a differenceÃ¢ÂÂ and as we expect, practice, and enforce consistent behaviors, it creates a learning environment that is safe and predictable for the students.
