Dolphins are S.M.A.R.T.

Students will be monitored for their SMART Behavior: safe, motivated, academic, respectful, team players. Students who receive SMART cards will put their names in for a weekly drawing of various school supplies and rewards. They can also save them for trimester award parties. This positive behavior rewards program will be presented to students and parents in various formats including video clips and power point lessons. We hope you will support our school’s positive environment and encourage your student to earn these rewards. We will start giving out weekly awards at our Friday Flag ceremony and their names will be listed here in the Thursday Message.

Los estudiantes serán supervisados por su Comportamiento “SMART”: jugadores de equipo seguros, motivados, académicos, y respetuosos. Los estudiantes que reciben las tarjetas Inteligentes pueden anotar sus nombres para un sorteo semanal de útiles escolares y diferentes recompensas. También pueden guardarlos para las fiestas de trimestre. Este programa de comportamiento positivo de premios será presentado a los estudiantes y padres de familia de este año en varios formatos, incluyendo video clips y lecciones de “power point”. Esperamos que apoyen el ambiente positivo de la escuela y anime a su hijo a ganar estos premios. Vamos a empezar a dar reconocimiento de los premios semanales en nuestra ceremonia a la Bandera de los viernes y sus nombres serán anotados aquí en el mensaje del jueves.
