Tolbert Houses

You may have heard by now that we have a new and exciting program up and running at Tolbert! Our students have been separated into houses to promote school community!
Students within a class are mixed into all of the houses. This will give our students opportunities to meet other students and staff among all of the grade levels. Each house has about 125 students. They have their very own handshake, weather event name, and color! The houses will have a meeting once a month to work on being good characters and to practice
team building! The houses are as follows:
• Avalanche/Red
• Lightning/Orange
• Thunder/Purple
• Tsunami/Blue
• Cyclone/Green
• Blizzard/Teal
We are now using a school wide point system. The students can earn points for their house for good deeds. We want to show our respectful, responsible, and ready to learn behavior!
The PBIS committee is keeping track of school points daily. Students have a chance for shoutouts on the morning announcements and leading houses will be recognized. All students within the house with the highest points at the end of the month will receive a reward!  The students will have opportunities to vote upon other reward ideas for the upcoming months.
We hope that your children are very excited about this program. We know the staff is definitely looking forward to watching the students at Tolbert Elementary show us their best as we become a more connected school family!
