Message from the Principal

Our PBIS teams continue to meet to discuss and evaluate the validity of the program. Our Tier 3 team met in May to review the ISSET data. The purpose of ISSET is to analyze the effectiveness of our Tier 3 implementation. A team from the district came to the school to interview staff members and students. Based on the feedback they received, we were given scores and feedback that we need to focus on for the next school year.  A couple of areas that we need to work on are: involving other team members to conduct functional behavior assessments, train teachers on requesting assistance for students, and continue to collect data on students. With a collaborative effort next year we will be able to work on these goals to make our Tier 3 implementation more supportive.

            Our discipline referrals jumped in the month of April compared to the previous month. However, if you compare the referral count this year to the same month last year we reduced the referrals by 37. Currently, we are on pace to reduce the referral count in the month of May. Last year we logged 88 referrals in the month of May and this year we have logged 35. We continue to reinforce the positive behavior of the students and use the Dusty Tickets to reward students that are following the school-wide rules. We will continue these efforts for the next school year. 

            We ended the year showcasing the many talents we have at Copper Basin. We had twenty groups participate in our Copper Basin’s Got Talent Show. The cafeteria was packed and the air was electric. The administration even got involved with a special dance/lip sync of their own. Mrs. Solis was gracious enough to serve as one of the judges. In the end, six groups were announced and participated at a school-wide assembly.

            The importance of academics was also showcased this month at the National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony. Twenty new students were inducted and participated in the organization’s official ceremony. It was great to see all of the parental support in the crowd. We look forward to continuing this tradition and the induction of more students in the years to come.

            Finally, we concluded the year-end ceremonies with Kindergarten and 8th grade promotion. We had many positive comments regarding the gym decorations and the student speeches. Again, we would like to thank Ms. Solis for attending both ceremonies.

Best Regards,

Scott Johnson
