Dear Twister Families,
A new year is always an exciting time for a fresh start! We are dedicated to continuing to provide a positive, caring, and safe learning environment for all students. On September 1st, we had a Terrific Twister kick-off assembly with the help of the high school band. Throughout the school, posters have been placed to serve as reminders of student expectations (hallway, bathroom, lunchroom, etc.). We want our students to have pride in themselves and their school; therefore, when they are showing great behavior and demonstrating kindness, respect, fairness and responsibility, students will be recognized for their behavior and earn a Twister Ticket from any teacher or staff member in the building who has witnessed the behavior. Tickets will be placed into their classroom Twister bins. At the end of each month, your child’s classroom teacher will draw one boy and one girl from their classroom Twister Ticket bin. Students that are chosen will earn a Terrific Twister Certificate and their picture on the Terrific Twister Wall of Fame. At the end of each month, each classroom teacher will empty their classroom bin into a large Twister Ticket holder in the library (see picture below). As a school, we will be working
towards monthly goals which are marked on the Twister Ticket holder. If the monthly goal is met, the whole school will earn the monthly incentive. Some incentives include: Extra Recess, Neon Day, Pajama Day, and more!
We are very excited to roll out this new program and recognize students who are demonstrating HBT’s Care Code throughout the school day. It’s a great day to be a TWISTER!
