All MSD of Warren Township schools will begin implementing Culturally Responsive Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (CR-PBIS) for the 2014-2015 school year. CR-PBIS is a research-based framework of proactive management of behavioral concerns that is grounded in a profound emphasis on what we want students “to do”. This model is used district wide to provide a consistent, positive approach to discipline that includes explicit teaching and acknowledgement of behavior expectations, cultural responsiveness, and problem solving to meet individual student needs.
Each school has a CR-PBIS team. These teams have received extensive training on the components of CR-PBIS and have developed a comprehensive plan for implementation at the building level aligned to MSD of Warren Township’s district goals of C.O.R.E. (Civility, Order, Respect, and Excellence). Each building team uses data to help determine areas of strength and additional supports needed, which aids faculty members in improving academic and behavioral outcomes for all students.
All schools have outlined the specific behaviors that are expected in the school environment. These expectations translate into observable and measurable behaviors that are explicitly taught and acknowledged when students demonstrate them in specific settings throughout the school. This promotes an atmosphere of C.O.R.E. and shifts the focus from our reactions to misbehavior to strategies that we can implement to reduce the incidence of behavioral errors.
Before and After School Childcare for students in grades K-6 will be offered through the YMCA. Locations will be at each elementary and intermediate school. More information on this program can be found be accessing the flyer.
For those students who may require medications at school such as Epi-pens, inhalers, nebulizer treatments, etc., 2 sets of medications will need to be provided - one for day care and one for the clinic at school. The YMCA and the school clinic are two separate entities and neither one will have access to the other's supplies or medications.
You are invited to be a PAC Parent!
Does your child ever take too much time to do homework… need an extra boost of self-esteem…use social media…or choose not to follow your directions? As a parent, do you ever feel like you could use some support from other parents who have the same concerns with their children as you? If so, you are encouraged to register for our upcoming PAC (Parents are the Core) sessions. Throughout the 2014-15 school year, six sessions will be offered for parents. Topics include: how to determine what makes your child special and strategies for building these strengths, homework tips, discipline, your child and social media, and information Warren Township parents need to know. The sessions will be held from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at school throughout the school year. Free supervised activities will be offered for children, ages 5-12, who attend with their parents. PAC Kids is open only to children whose parents are attending PAC. Activities will include crafts, computer games and activities, game nights, gym activities, fun projects, snacks, and entertainment. The first session is scheduled for Thursday, August 14 at 6:00 p.m. To register, complete the form sent home at Registration or during the first week of school and return it to school by the due date. If you are unable to attend the session at our school, the topics will be offered at every other Warren Township elementary and intermediate academy. Call the school office or check the Warren Township website for this information.
We need your bottle caps!
Eastridge plans to do a recycling project in the 2014-15 school year and they are in need of bottle caps (pop bottles, Gatorade bottles, etc.). We would like to make a mural using the bottle caps to decorate the school. We will need all colors and sizes. Save those bottle caps over the summer.
Everyone had fun at the 2nd Annual
Eastridge Back to School Picnic!
On Thursday, July 17, all Eastridge families and staff were invited to a kick-off picnic. Hot dogs, sno cones, lemonade and cookies with chips were served. 200 families and 40 staff attended. Games, bounce houses, and family networking highlighted the event. Color coded shirts allowed families to easily find their teachers.
Pop Your Top for The Ronald McDonald House
Eastridge is collecting pop tabs for The Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House serves families whose children require care at an Indianapolis-area hospital. Money generated from recycling pop tabs helps cover expenses.
Beginning August 5th and continuing through August 12th our Grounds Department will spray the large grassy field areas (including the athletic fields) at Eastridge and Moorhead with SpeedZone, a broadleaf weed control herbicide. Copies of the Material Safety Data Sheets are available upon request. If you have any questions please call Jerry Crites, 532-2804.
