Our Children Need You!!!!

Floodwood Parent/Community Volunteer Group
Do you have ideas on ways to improve our school?  Are there events going on at the school you would like to be involved in?  Have school events happened and you didn’t know about them?  Do you love working with children and have time to volunteer your time and/or talents to improve a child’s education? Would you like to see more Community Education Programs offered through the school?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may want to join our Floodwood Parent/Community Volunteer Group.  Our goal is to have a group of adults willing to volunteer for various activities, events and daily routines at the school.  Our students need an involved community to get the most they can out of their educational experience at Floodwood School.  You CAN make a difference!
Please contact Amanda Fjeld at 218.391.0316 or afjeld@isd698.org to get your name on the list of people who would like to make our school a better place for all!
Mark your calendars for our first monthly meeting - Tuesday, February 23rd at 6pm in the Floodwood School Media Center.  Make sure to use the south doors, all other school doors will be locked at this time.  Hope to see you there! Thank you!


Senior Class Donations Needed
The senior class holds a fundraiser at each varsity basketball game. The fundraiser is called Shoot for Pop. Students and adults can pay a dollar to shoot a basket at half time to win a 2-liter bottle of pop. The seniors are asking for donations of cash to purchase pop or donations of 2-liter bottles of pop can be dropped off in the office.

What is "Polar Pride"?

Floodwood School has adopted a Positive Behavioral Intervention Support (PBIS) framework which supports a positive school climate and the reduction of problem behavior. The language used by staff as part of this framework is “Polar Pride".  Polar Pride is taught and modeled by Floodwood School staff using the Polar Pride matrix.  Students are taught expectations in all settings at the beginning of each school year.  Additionally, teachers reteach the matrix and expectations throughout the year as needed. Floodwood Elementary staff (grade PK-6) distribute “Pride Paws” throughout the day to students demonstrating Polar Pride. The Pride Paws are used to reinforce positive behavior.  As students receive Pride Paws they write their name on the paw and place them in their classroom bucket.  Each week the paws are collected from each classroom and the name of one boy and one girl is drawn.  These students are recognized as “Students of the Week.”  At the High School, one girl and one boy is nominated by staff each week and are also recognized as “Students of the Week.” These students are honored for consistently showing Polar Pride in recent weeks.  All “Students of the Week” receive recognition for their good work (certificates, announcements, etc.) 
The Floodwood School staff work hard to recognize positive behavior in our students each day.  Research shows that when schools have a framework for recognizing positive behavior, positive behavior increases and negative behavior decreases which has a direct impact on the overall positive climate of the building.
