Responsive Classroom:

CES is implementing and getting really good at Responsive Classroom, which is "an evidence-based approach to teaching that focuses on engaging academics, positive community, effective management, and developmental awareness." The program will incorporate morning meeting activities, energizers and movement, games and activities, and other community building activities.

PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports):

PBIS is a school wide behavior plan that focuses on rewarding students for positive behavior inside and outside of the classroom.  We are asking our students to be a STARR in the classroom, hallways, bathrooms, playground, etc. Be on the lookout for additional information on this program throughout the year! 

S- Safe
T- Tolerance
A- Acceptance
R- Responsibility 
R- Respect 

___________________________________________________________________________________

Mindfulness!
As part of PBIS, we are practicing mindfulness, or being aware of your own bodies and feelings.  We will be developing strategies to help us when we are upset or not feeling well. Some of these strategies include deep belly breaths, yoga poses, draw and crumble, and a lot of GoNoodles!  I hope the students will enjoy these strategies and practice them as needed!
