2015-2016 Preschool Programming Information

Floodwood School is providing improved PreSchool programming for 3 year olds (previously called “Busy Bodies”) and 4 year olds (previously called “School Readiness”) starting in September of 2015.
Early Childhood Family Education “ECFE” will continue as in the past and information will come out in the fall about that programming.
Families need to apply now. Click Here for an application!
Most families will qualify for reduced rates!
However, for families who do not qualify for reduced programming, the fee schedule will be:
Four Year Olds: September-May, Monday-Thursday, full day programming = $250 per month.
Three Year Olds: September-May, Monday-Thursday, half day programming = $125 per month.
Transportation available at no charge!
Those who do not wish to send their 3 or 4 year olds for the entire scheduled daily time may be given a sliding fee scale. However, there must be enough interested in programming to justify the need for full-time teacher.
If you are interested, please either stop in the office for an application, down load one off of the district website, or contact Lois (476-2285 ext. 108 or ) to have one sent to you.

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.
