PBIS and The Eagle Way
What is PBIS?
For those families new to Conners, PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support Initiatives.
It is a positive behavior system put in place to encourage students to monitor behavior and gauge their social emotional learning. Our goal is to establish an environment where appropriate behavior is the norm by celebrating, recognizing and rewarding positive behavior.
The use of eagle tickets helps us to recognize and reinforce positive behavior. Students are given the opportunity to earn eagle tickets on a daily basis. These eagle tickets may be used to “purchase” tickets to special events and classroom rewards. Some of the favorite classroom rewards students save tickets for include lunch with the teacher or teacher chair for the day. Ask your child what they like to use their eagle tickets for.
“The goal of Positive Behavior Support is not “perfect children”. Rather the goal should be creating the perfect environment for enhancing their growth.” - Randy Sprick
The Eagle Way: Empathy, Academic Success, Good Choices, Leadership, and Engagement.

We are getting ready to begin a new planting season in the school garden! We will be pulling plants that have completed their life cycle and will be planting broccoli, beats and other leafy greens. We are fortunate that we are able to continue growing arugula, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, parsley, fennel and cosmos.
We are excited to start a club that will benefit our community and help our students learn about the importance of a garden.
Sight Words are memorized so that a child can recognize commonly used or phonetically irregular words at a glance, without needing to go letter-by-letter.
The best way to learn sight words is through lots and lots of repetition, in the form of flashcard exercises and word-focused games.
Students will begin with Sight Words, and move onto phrases.
The words in these phrases come from Dr. Edward Fry’s Instant Word List (High Frequency Words). According to Fry, the first 300 words in the list represent about 67% of all the words students encounter in their reading. Learning all 1,000 words in the Fry list would equip a child to read about 90% of the words in a typical book, newspaper, or website.
