Whipple Heights Starts New Positive Bus Behavior Program

Bus - PBISThis coming week we will be starting a new positive behavior program geared towards improving our student’s bus ride to and from school.  Each trip (morning and afternoon) all of our bus drivers will be asked to select one student (per trip) who stood out to them because they were following the rules and setting a positive example for others.

Students who receive a ticket will then fill it out (with their name and grade) and place the ticket in a box located in the school office (see picture).  At the end of the week, Mr. Hug will draw five student names from the box and honor those positive examples.  Recipients will not only have their names announced during morning announcements but they will also receive a small prize and have their picture featured on our school website.

Lunch Menu Changes: February 19 – 21

Elementary Lunch Menu Changes:  Wednesday (2/19) – Romeo’s Pizza or Sub Sandwich, Thursday (2/20) – Chicken Nuggets or Turkey & Gravy, Friday (2/21) – Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks or Sloppy Joe Sandwich

Honoring Superstar Effort!

IMG_0058Great things continue to happen at Whipple Heights Elementary School.  The most recent being the addition of Mr. Hug’s Principal Showcase.  The Principal Showcase is a new bulletin board (located in the main hallway across from the office) where every three to four weeks teachers submit student work for recognition and display.  Each time the board is changed we will recognize these students on our website/social media.  Additionally, when it’s time to change the board students will receive a small token from Mr. Hug to reinforce his pride and excitement in their display of hard work.  (more…)
