Creating a climate for learning. Dr. Elena Rios of the National Hispanic Medication Association meets CHEC students.
Giving PBIS points is our primary way of giving feedback to our students for the behaviors we want to reinforce. What systems are you all using in your classroom to reinforce positive behavior? Use this week to check in individually with your students to review this data feedback. How will you challenge them?
Nice work with the fire drill today. Overall, students knew what their expectations were and followed those closely. Shout Outs go to all the staff for holding students accountable and ensuring student safety.
Areas of Emphasis this Week
Detention: We still have students skipping detention in the afternoons. Detention is a first intervention we have for students to check and correct their behavior in your classrooms. Students being informed of this consequence is vital to the effectiveness of the consequence. Remember to use our 5 step process with fidelity so that our students will not earn a greater consequence of ISS and thus lose valuable class time.
Uniforms: We’ve done a nice job keeping high standards with our uniforms this year, but let’s not let that slip. Students should be in full uniform throughout the day. Let’s continue to support one another by checking all students throughout day.
Hallways: Scholars are expected to walk, to stay to the right, to be in full uniform, use Level 1 voices and to move with a purpose in our hallways. Adults should support these expectations by reiterating expectations frequently, with strong presence in the hallways, by addressing behavior in the hallways, by actively monitoring with teacher-voices and watchful eyes throughout transitions.
Dismissal: We always need more support at dismissal from 3:15pm until 3:35pm (High School), 4:15pm until 4:35pm (Middle School). Please follow students all the way out to the front of the building. Students should be encouraged to move on toward their bus stops/metro quickly. Teachers and staff that can make themselves available to stay out front will be greatly appreciated.
