Maria Manner will be conducting her "Safe On My Own" program for kids in grades 4-6 on Tuesday, March 17th and March 19th from 3:00-5:15 PM at the Floodwood School.  She will share safety information for kids who are reaching the age where their parents will be allowing them to stay home alone before or after school, or at other times.

She will instruct students on how to handle situations that kids could encounter while being alone at home. This ranges from how to handle answering the phone, to a knock at the door, to kitchen safety and basic first aid.  The cost of the class is $25.

To register please contact Adam Johnson at or by phone at 476-2285 ext. 104.

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.
