My Students

The students in my school are full of energy, wonder, and enthusiasm. They come from various cultures, speak different languages, and many of their families are struggling economically. They attend a culturally diverse school where seventy percent of the students receive a free or reduced-price lunch in the state of Washington.

Aside from the cultural and economic differences in our student population, you'll find that our amazing students are eager to learn and are trying to build successful lives that will be happy and productive.

My Project

Staff members give out live school points to students to recognize them for being respectful of people, property and/or learning. Every student throughout the school works hard to earn live school points during the day for a trip to the school store at lunch time. Each child can spend their points at the school store or save them to buy a bigger prize the next time they visit the store. My school has adopted school wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS emphasizes the establishment of organizational supports and systems that give our staff the capacity to use effective interventions accurately and successfully. It is a prevention-oriented way for all school staff to maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students. PBIS supports the success of ALL students. My school has adopted school wide expectations that require our students to be respectful of people, property, and learning. The art materials (sketching sets, fuse bead kits, and paint) that I am requesting will be used as incentives to show our students that we appreciate their efforts. These resources can and will brighten the day of many children.
