At Wylandville Elementary, students are encouraged to Make Their "MARK." Their positive school-wide behavior plan reminds kids to
Make good choices,
Respect others, themselves, and their surroundings, and to
Keep being the best they can be!
Students Made Their MARK throughout the school year by following the building's tenets. Throughout the year, students were rewarded for doing their part to make the school a positive place to be with quarterly parties. Wylandville's fourth nine weeks celebration was a beach party! Students brought their beach towels and spent some extra time outdoors playing volleyball, enjoying slushies, and just soaking up the sun!
Students earned their place at the party by earning dots throughout the nine weeks, which were given when they demonstrated that they have Made Their MARK. School Counselor Mrs. Ford gives the examples that some students earned their dots by helping to keep the school clean by picking up their area, showing kindness to classmates, or doing their very best work.
A SWPBIS program is in place at all of Canon-Mac's elementary buildings, and every building has their own theme. Wylandville Elementary is unique, however, because they have reached a Tier 2 designation, which means that they have implemented their SWPBIS program to the highest standards, and have made great strides in building a positive school-wide culture.
Mrs. Ford says many people contributed to the beautiful decorationd that are shown in the pictures below,
"Many people can be thanked for keeping our building beautiful. Our PFO decorates the main lobby and hallways frequently throughout the school year, keeping our building bright, engaging, and fun. Our Make Your MARK posters have been designed by Mrs. Olivia Bost, a member of our SWPBIS team. Other members of our team include Mrs. Shannon Balch (Principal), Mr. Brian Anderson (School Psychologist), Mrs. Heather Leister (Learning Support Teacher), and Ms. Kristy Chavez (4th Grade Teacher)."
Congratulations to everyone involved on contributing to a positive school-wide atmosphere in an already challenging school year!
