Letter From Mr. Turner

 

Dear Parents:

 

On behalf of the Rootstown Elementary School staff, I would like to welcome our students and parents to the 2014-15 school year.  It was great seeing you during the Open-House on August 25th.  Once again, the year promises to be filled with many opportunities for our students to grow academically and socially through varied instructional techniques and programs.  It is our goal each year to plan instruction and programs to meet the needs of all types of learners.

 

As we begin the year, I would like to share changes to the building and staff.  The building has a second computer lab in Room 5 made possible through donations from NEOMED as the preschool was moved to Room 21.  Thank you to NEOMED for the generous donations.  Additionally, the south visitor parking lot behind the middle school received a new asphalt surface over the summer.  We are so excited to have these much needed changes to our building.

 

Please join me in welcoming Mr. Apthorpe (4th grade teacher) and Mrs. Ray (School Counselor) to the building.  I am confident that both staff members will bring many positive qualities to the building. 

 

Finally, we are introducing a new positive behavior intervention and support system (PBIS) that will be district wide.  The theme for our district is Rover PRIDE, district wide! Our PRIDE theme lists specific behavior expectations that include demonstrating the following skills and behaviors:

 

Problem Solver

Responsible

Involved

Dependable

Engaged

 

Through our two elementary building (K-2 and 3-5) matrices, behavior expectations for all students in all areas of their day such as the classroom, cafeteria, bus, playground, etc. are outlined.  The principle of our PRIDE system is that when students are positively rewarded for appropriate behaviors, inappropriate behaviors will lessen.  With fewer behavior issues and happier students, students will be better equipped to work to their full potential.  

 

In the elementary school, we will reward students for displaying the various behavior expectations with a PRIDE ticket.  The new PRIDE tickets will model the Star tickets from previous years, and each week ten students will be chosen at random to receive a prize from Mrs. Ray! In addition to our PRIDE tickets, all teachers are encouraged to use the terminology and language from the matrices and to use creative, positive interventions to reward students within the classroom.   Lastly, our monthly character trait and counselor lesson will reflect our PRIDE theme allowing our monthly “Turner Award” winners to exemplify that month’s behavior and character trait.  We are excited to implement our new PRIDE theme for our building and district!  As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding our Rover PRIDE system or your child’s success, you can contact Mr. Turner at 330-325-7971 or Mrs. Ray at 330-325-2011.

 

Sincerely,

Mr. Jeffrey Turner

Principal
