ASV Ticket Program

As noted in last week’s edition, the ASV Ticket system was implemented for the first time at the elementary school. This program is part of our Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) philosophy which is one of ASVs  four focus areas as a school this year. This past week, 71 tickets were awarded to students in grades 1-3 alone. ASV Tickets can be earned by students for demonstrating respectful, responsible, prepared, or engaged behaviors. Tickets are drawn weekly. Students who have a ticket drawn can earn incentives, such as ASV bracelets, dog tags, special lunches, etc.

Monitoring Student Achievements with PowerSchool

As you are aware, PowerSchool provides parents the ability to monitor the academic achievement and growth of their child on a consistent basis. Due to this enhanced level of access, we will not be mailing home paper copy  versions of progress reports this year. However, at this point in the trimester, we recommend that parents review PowerSchool, much as you would a traditional progress report.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s teacher. The first trimester will end on December 1, 2015. 

Reading Program Starting on November

Thank you to the parent who attended the introductory meeting of our Parent Volunteers Reading Program on Thursday, October 22. This activity will start on Monday, November 2. Volunteers will receive the presentation to inform them in case any of them could not attend the meeting. Please confirm to the Elementary School Vice Principal, Ms. Elena Corchs, your availability at the time scheduled.
