SOAR: All Year SOAR (Safe Ongoing kindness Act responsibly Respect) is a school-wide positive-behavior support system (PBIS) developed by the Emmons Lake staff, to create a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students. Students modeling appropriate behavior will be awarded a SOAR bracelet, followed by tickets that will make them eligible for special prizes throughout the year.
A unified set of behavior standards have been developed and are posted throughout the school and on the ELE website.
Research shows that schools that effectively adopt a PBIS system are more likely to have a school environment that: . Engages more students in learning . Enhances student achievement . Prevents major behavior problems . Responds to student behavior positively and effectively
T-SHIRT DAYS As students have been practicing “SOAR” behavior the past couple of years, we thought it appropriate to move to that t-shirt design for all our kindergarten and new students. Along with students earning "SOAR" tickets, they will also receive "Bucketfiller" tickets again this year for those behaviors.
The PTO is providing all kindergarten and new students with a new "SOAR" t-shirt. Each month during the year we will have a "t-shirt day" where all students are invited to wear EITHER their "SOAR" or "Bucketfiller" t-shirt. The t-shirt form is attached below for all those who wish to purchase a new t-shirt. Order forms are due by August 31.
