    Classroom Philosophy
     
    I believe that all children can strive to their best potential when a high expectation is set. As their teacher, my goal is for your child to be a successful and independent learner. I expect that they will strive to do their best each and everyday. Students are expected to arrive to school prepared, fully rested,  ON TIME, excited and ready to learn.  I do realize that with a high expectation there may come a bit of challenge and discomfort for a student. However, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student's face light up when they have met and exceeded those challenges.   I take pride in helping my students to be the best they can possibly be!

    Classroom Management
     
    Table Points are given to each table team throughout the week.  The tables with the most points get to eat lunch with Miss LoVuolo! 
    Students will be given 3 warnings to change their behavior.  If more than 3 warnings are given then there will be parental contact.
     
    Dragon Bite Jar- Once filled we will have class rewards and incentives.
    Dragon Bites are cotton craft puffs that are given to a child when they are performing EXPECTED behaviors everywhere and anywhere they go in the building.  These dragon bites are distributed by ANY staff member in the building, when they see students showing expected behavior.  Including in the classroom, the hallway, the cafeteria, specials, recess, etc.
     
    SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL)- This is a Social Thinking Classroom! We will learn how to develop our social competency skills using the Second Step Curriculum. 
     
    BYOT 
     I do allow students to bring in their own technology.  As long as a parent/guardian has filled out the application, then students may bring in their own IPADS, iphones, and tablets.
     
     Please be sure to download the following apps PRIOR to sending in the technology.
