Hi! We have started some fun things at Ammon. We have implemented S.O.A.R. cards. This stands for: Self-control, On-task, Acceptance, Respect. When kids are doing good things they can be awarded a S.O.A.R. card that they in turn, write their name on and put it in their grade level envelope. We have weekly drawings and the students get a prize. Ask your student if they have received one and what he/she did to get it.
We are continuing many of the clubs at Ammon this year. The kids seem to be excited and are enjoying those that have started. We are adding a few new ones and bringing back some older ones. We are excited to get a robotics team together again. Check the website for information and we will announce it as soon as all of the parts arrive. We are also looking for a few good used skateboards and/or safety equipment that we can use with our skate club. If you have any, or know someone that would be willing to donate, it would be greatly appreciated.
Our school began SWPBIS, School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, training this summer. A part of that includes our 5 to 1 initiative of 5 positives for every negative. Staff and students are asked to focus on the positive and to provide 5 positive comments for every negative. Ask your student how it is going. We also held our Passport assembly last Monday. Every student and teacher learned about our school wide expectations.
If you have any questions or concerns please email or call me. I love being at Ammon Elementary and look forward to working with you and the students again this year.
