Students were celebrated during our January Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) assembly for utilizing the key of failure leads to success. Students who demonstrate this key learn from their mistakes, insides and outside of school. The fourth graders taught us about failure leads to success by leading out a chant! Students who were recognized participated in a game with their teachers. They tossed cotton balls into the baskets or cups on their teachers’ heads! Congratulations to all who have used this key here at Stevenson!
This week, kindergarten students created their own rollercoasters! They worked together to create a design based on what they learned during their forces and interactions unit in science. Way to go, kindergarten!
Student-led conferences will be taking place February 15 and 16. We are excited to share with you the progress we have made so far this year. Please remember that students should be attending these conferences!
Also, during this time, be sure to check out all the amazing writing adorning the halls as you visit for conferences and engage with your child in a family writing activity. Stevenson authors have been revising, editing, re-revising, re-editing, and revising again to make sure their work is top notch! Be sure to share some feedback regarding how you feel about the progress your child has made both in your conference as well as on the work you see in the halls. We can’t wait to see you here!
