Hello Elliott Families,
Our family assembly, Upstanders Rock, that was scheduled for last Wednesday and canceled due to the snow day has been rescheduled to this Thursday, February 2 at 6:00. Your RSVP from the original date will be honored. It is a sold out show!
As part of PBiS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) we have three expectations for our students--Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. We directly teach these expectations and when students follow them they receive positive dojo points, daily/weekly classroom rewards, and monthly rewards. We are now adding an Elliott PBiS store! Students will be able to shop once per month, using their earned Dojo points to purchase a variety of items! Students will have access to this mobile store once a month in their classroom. Every 5 dojo points earned throughout the month is equivalent to "1 dollar" at our Elliott PBiS store. See our PBiS Matrix below for more details regarding our three expectations.
Hello Elliott Families,
While we continue to grow academically, we are also continuing to learn about the importance of respect and kindness, and how to prevent bullying. Last week fourth and fifth graders participated in a live virtual presentation from the Michigan OK2Say program and learned about cyber safety and ways to stop a bully. This Wednesday, 1/25, all students will participate in an interactive, fun assembly about respect and kindness called Super U Challenge Show. The same evening will be our family assembly Upstanders Rock! It is a sold out show! Tickets for those who reserved them will be coming home soon.
As we move into 2023 we are so very excited about all of the learning happening here at Elliott. Children learn better—and faster—when teachers have a clear picture of what students know and how they are growing academically. We will be assessing the growth of your child throughout the month of January using our NWEA tests. Click here for more information. As always, if you have any questions please reach out to your child's teacher via Dojo or email, or contact me via email or phone.
November has been a very exciting month for many of our students. Our Wayne Memorial High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team is in the National Preseason Top 40 for the first time. We are proud of all the hard work and energy put into the program.
Students from our elementary and middle schools had the opportunity to visit Michigan State University, where they toured the campus and got to watch a women's basketball game. Another group of middle school students visited Lawrence Technological University and participated in STEM day. HYPE Athletics made a $10,000 donation to our PBIS program, which provides students with positive behavior with a one-day pass to the facility. We continue to work with our community partners to offer our students the most hands-on and comprehensive opportunities.
