ICU Update: General education teachers have completed our reading of the book Brickhouse by Danny Hill. It has helped to solidify the program in our building. As we continue to implement the program, we are forming an action team. This team's major goal will be to see the implementation across the finish line while creating a document of common expectations, solutions to common issues, and a process to hold us accountable for what we believe.
PBIS Update: Our PBIS team has been working hard to roll out full implementation of
Tier I for the 2020-21 school year. We recently purchased the PBIS Rewards computer program, which will allow teachers to award points digitally to students that demonstrate outstanding behaviors. Students can then cash these points in for various prizes and privileges from our school store. We are doing small trial runs this spring with the program to work out any potential problems before rolling the program out fully this fall.
MAP: As a building, we have been studying the MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Assessments throughout the course of the year. Through these assessments, which are administered in the fall, winter, and spring, we are able to assess our students’ growth as well as their levels of proficiency. We have studied several different types of reports and analyzed the student data to help us plan for the needs of our students. Most recently, we looked at the student achievement and growth report.
On Friday, February 7, our students who reached 5 or more goals on their Character Card were rewarded. These students were invited to an ice cream social in the morning. Each student received ice cream, sprinkles, and whipped topping. The social was DJ’d by Mr. Snyder and included the cupid shuffle. It was a great opportunity to recognize our students who work so hard at WMS.
