Announcements

                    WELCOME TO THE 2015-2016 SCHOOL YEAR!!!

I'M DELIGHTED TO START THE NEW YEAR WITH HIGH EXPECTATIONS AND GREAT 
ENTHUSIASM WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE SCHOOL TEAM AND PARENTS TO 
PROVIDE OUR STUDENTS WITH THE BEST SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT!  
      

                             **COUNSELING NEWS**

I WORK WITH ALL STUDENTS IN GRADES K-5. I AM A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL 
SUPPORT TEAM THAT DISCUSSES STUDENTS WHO ARE HAVING ACADEMIC AND/OR

MAY BE POSSIBLE CANDIDATES FOR THE GIFTED PROGRAM. IN ADDITION, I HELP 
DEVELOP FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT PLANS TO IMPROVE BEHAVIOR. PLEASE FEEL FREE

                            **CHARACTER EDUCATION**

TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS AND COUNSELORS PROMOTE THE DEVELOPMENT OF GOOD 
CHARACTER AMONG OUR STUDENTS. SEVERAL ACTIVITIES IN THE CLASSROOMS AND 
SCHOOL-WIDE ARE CONDUCTED THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR TO EMPHASIZE THE 
IMPORTANCE OF BEING HARD WORKING, RESPONSIBLE, KIND, HELPFUL, AND HONEST.   

EVERY MONTH WE HIGHLIGHT A CHARACTER TRAIT THAT PROMOTES THE 
DEVELOPMENT OF VALUES SUCH AS HONESTY, RESPONSIBILITY, KINDNESS, 
CITIZENSHIP AND OTHERS.

CHARACTER EDUCATION TRAIT FOR THE MONTH OF:
AUGUST-       PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE
SEPTEMBER-    CITIZENSHIP
OCTOBER-      RESPECT
NOVEMBER-     RESPONSIBILITY
DECEMBER-     HONESTY
JANUARY-      INTEGRITY
FEBRUARY-     KINDNESS
MARCH-        COOPERATION
APRIL-        FAIRNESS
MAY-          CHARACTER EDUCATION CELEBRATION OF ALL TRAITS


PARENTS, PLEASE LOOK FOR THE CHARACTER TRAIT OF EVERY MONTH, TALK TO 
YOUR CHILD ABOUT IT AND DO ACTIVITIES AT HOME THAT PROMOTE THE DEVELOPMENT 
OF THAT VALUE.
  
FOR EXAMPLE, THE CHARACTER TRAIT OF THE MONTH OF AUGUST IS PURSUIT OF 
EXCELLENCE. A LOVING, SUPPORTIVE, AND FUNCTIONAL HOME ENVIRONMENT NEEDS 
THAT ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY TRY TO DO THEIR BEST WHEN DOING A CHORE, AN 
ACTIVITY, OR SCHOOL ASSIGNMENT. 
EXAMPLES OF PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE INCLUDE DOING YOUR VERY BEST WHEN 
HELPING OUT WITH FAMILY CHORES, WHEN PARTICIPATING IN SPORTS, MUSIC, 
DANCE, OR ART ACTIVITIES, AND WHEN DOING SCHOOLWORK.
PARENTS, PLEASE PROMOTE THE PRACTICE OF THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE AMONG 
FAMILY MEMBERS THROUGH MODELING AND TEACHING WAYS TO TRY TO DO YOUR 
BEST AND BE PROUD OF YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

                            **STUDENT OF THE MONTH** 

EVERY MONTH TEACHERS NOMINATE ONE STUDENT IN EACH CLASS WHO HAS 
DEMONSTRATED THE CHARACTER OF THE MONTH. STUDENTS OF THE MONTH PARTICIPATE 
IN A MONTHLY CELEBRATION SPONSORED BY OUR FABULOUS PTA AND RECEIVE A 
CERTIFICATE AND A T-SHIRT.

                          **PEACEMAKER OF THE MONTH**

EVERY MONTH SELECTED TEACHERS (IN A ROTATING MANNER) WILL NOMINATE 
STUDENTS WHO HAVE DEMONSTRATED EXCELLENT SKILLS IN PEACEFUL CONFLICT 
SOLVING. THEY PARTICIPATE IN THE MONTHLY STUDENT OF THE MONTH CELEBRATION 
AND RECEIVE A CERTIFICATE AND T-SHIRT.

                          **YOU ARE A "STAR" TICKETS**

STUDENTS ARE RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR KINDNESS, BEST LEARNING EFFORT, 
PEACEFUL CONFLICT SOLVING, RESPONSIBILITY OR COOPERATION. THEY RECEIVE 
A "STAR TICKET" TO TAKE HOME AND THE COPY GOES TO THE STAR BOX. DURING 
MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, MRS. TARAFA PULLS 2 TICKETS EVERY DAY AND READS THE 
STUDENTS' NAMES. THESE STUDENTS RECEIVE A "STAR STUDENT" STICKER, SPECIAL 
PENCIL, OR ANOTHER TANGIBLE REWARD IN ADDITION TO VERBAL RECOGNITION.

                           **DO THE RIGHT THING**

DEMONSTRATING EXEMPLARY BEHAVIOR, RESPONSIBILITY, KINDNESS, HONESTY, 
COOPERATION OR ANY OTHER POSITIVE OUTSTANDING BEHAVIOR. THE POLICE 
DEPARTMENT RECOGNIZES THESE STUDENTS WITH A CERTIFICATE, A LETTER FROM THE 
POLICE CHIEF AND A T-SHIRT. THESE STUDENTS ALSO PARTICIPATE IN THE MONTHLY 
CELEBRATION OF STELLAR STUDENTS.
