Dear Sundance Families,
Schools are successful when they help children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. For this to happen it is important that we have a safe environment that is supportive and conducive for growth. By setting forth clear social and behavioral expectations and directly teaching students about those expectations, it is our goal is to continue to have a positive atmosphere for optimal learning.
We are excited that Sundance Elementary School participates in Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS). PBIS is a system for improving student behavior. It is used with all students across all environments in school (classroom, lunchroom, restroom, playground, library, MPR and hallways) to help create a safe and effective learning environment. Here at Sundance, we are committed to teach, reinforce, and acknowledge appropriate student behaviors. At all times, staff and students are expected to:
"BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, and BE SAFE"
To help students be successful with this, we strive to instill sixteen lifelong positive social skills in our students.
The 16 Positive Behavior Skills that we continually focus on at Sundance are:
It is my hope that we will all continue to work together to ensure that PBIS is successful and meaningful here at Sundance. Families, please encourage your child(ren) to engage in positive behaviors and aim for success everyday.
Ms. Shropshire, Assistant Principal
