We, the students and staff at Centennial Elementary School, pledge to practice safety, show respect, and live responsible, as we think, learn and grow together.
I pledge to take a S T A N D against bullying:
S - Show good character
T - Treat others like I want to be treated
A - Always report bullying to an adult
N - NEVER bully others
D - Do my part to help others who are bullied
"Cool Tools," is a clear set of social and behavioral expectations for the students to be held accountable for their actions regardless of where they are at during their school day. Posters have been placed throughout the building stating expected behavior for the bathroom, classroom, cafeteria, playground and hallway. These posters are reviewed at the beginning of the school year and again mid-way into the year. If a student is continuously reminded of a specific misbehavior then the student will go to a Cool Tools Reminder Meeting to be re-taught the appropriate way to act or how to handle the certain situation where they are struggling. Further Cool Tools Reminder meetings will result in further consequences such as a letter home, a parent-staff conference, meeting with the principal, before or after school meetings, etc.
Teachers within their classroom also teach a SEL curriculum, aligned to a specific monthly trait outlined below.
- September: Manners
- October: Organization
- November: Self-Discipline (Humility)
- December: Gratitude
- January: Perseverance
- February: Reporting vs Tattling
- March: Patience
- April: Problem Solving
- May: Sportsmanship and Cooperation
It is our goal to help students acquire the skills to recognize and manage emotions, develop caring and concern for others, to establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions and handle challenging tasks effectively. Monthly SEL assemblies are conducted to help reinforce classroom lessons. A staff member will tie these monthly traits into a segment on bullying.
