Message from the Principal

July is one of the busiest months of the school year. We are planning, updating, and creating documents for the new school year. Currently, we are completing the master and electives schedules, enrolling students into classes, preparing student placement letters, meet the teacher paperwork, and grade level supply lists.

 As we prepare for next year, a major focus is going to be on our PBIS system and the implementation of our Tier 3 system. We will also focus on our Tier 1 and 2 program advancement. The data this year showed a downward shift in discipline referrals. However, we have a lot of work to do still. We are going to lose most of our Tier 1 team. Therefore, we will need to initiate some other members to the team and train them. Our main focus is going to our positive reward system. We need to get better at rewarding the students who earned Dusty Tickets. Our Tier 2 team will continue to monitor and adjust our Check-in Check-out system. The data shows a lot of positive outcomes and decrease in Tier 2 behaviors. However, we need to do a better job with the morning check-ins and the afternoon check-outs. We are excited to reduce our referral numbers even more than we already have.

 This school year will find us renewing our focus by ensuring a cohesive Tier 1 curriculum for all students. Differentiated instruction, small groups and data drive instruction will be the foundations of our PLC work. Understanding our students and designing instruction that meets their learning needs will be the focus of the learning community work and will drive our professional development efforts in Thinking Maps, Writing, Eureka Math, and comprehensive reading instruction in all content areas.

Best Regards,

Scott Johnson
