2018-19 Student Registration


We are already working hard to get things ready for the 2018-19 school year and a big part of that preparation is student registration. All returning students will be receiving a registration letter that contains a code needed to start the returning student registration process. The letter will direct you to click on the Online Student Registration Link. That link is below and is only to be used for returning students that have a registration code also referred to as the Snapcode.

PBIS-Warrior Bucks and Warrior Wahoo

Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports

PBIS Information

The link between families and positive behavioral interventions and supports is an important one. When families are meaningfully involved in educational activities their children do better in schools. Families play an important part in their child's education and social development. The presence of parents in schools not only provides additional academic supports but also creates community and cultural connections. We are excited about PBIS at Oak Grove Lower Elementary. We want to share with you about our school's plan to teach behavior to our students.

 

What is PBIS?

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is NOT a curriculum, intervention, or practice, but IS a decision making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavior outcomes for all students. More information is available here:        http://www.pbis.org

 

What does PBIS look like at Oak Grove Lower Elementary?

The school focuses on three behavioral expectations that are positively stated and easy to remember. This is called the “Warrior Way”. Our students recite this everyday after the pledge.

We are Responsible.

We are Respectful.

We are Ready to learn.

We are WARRIORS!

 All students are expected to be responsible, respectful, and ready to learn everyday.

 

How does PBIS reward our students?

We reward excellence at OGLE! When a student is exhibiting characteristics of the Warrior Way, they are rewarded with a Warrior Buck (personalized school ticket). Ten Warrior Bucks will gain that child access to our monthly school-wide special activity (the “Warrior Wahoo!”). These can be dances, parties, special entertainment, extra privileges and much more.

 

How can I help with PBIS?

There are many ways families can help PBIS run smoothly in our school.

●       Remind your child of the Warrior Way before they leave for school. Have conversations about what it looks like to be responsible, respectful, and ready to learn.

●       When your child gets a ticket, offer praise. If your child comes home with the ticket, please return it to school the next day. Your child's teacher tracks this in the room.

●       The biggest way that you can help us with PBIS is to offer your time and resources! If you have an idea for a monthly reward or would like sponsor a WARRIOR WAHOO event for our school, please contact Anna Morris atanna.morris@lamarcountyschools.org. or see the link below.

Thank you for helping us implement positive instructional and behavioral practices at Oak Grove Lower Elementary. We are looking forward to an AWESOME school year!

Thank you,
