We are SO very excited to see everyone on Monday morning! Just a reminder that we begin with a 1/2 day. Please see, below for dismissal maps for the west (McDonald’s side =) and east side parking lots.
Morning Arrival – Between 8:20am – 8:40am
Students may arrive each day between 8:20am – 8:40am. Please use your appropriate parking lots (Las Huellas on East side and Classic on West side) for pick up and drop off each day. Students will enter the building, grab a free breakfast if they wish and proceed directly to their classrooms and be ready to start their day at 8:45am.
Afternoon Dismissal – 3:30pm
Thanks to a grant from the federal government both breakfast and lunch are FREE to all students again this year! The only exception is if your middle school student orders an extra slice of pizza they will be charged $1.50. There is no sign up invovled in taking advantage of this program. Students will grab a free breakfast, if they wish, on their way inside the building each day and sign up for a free hot lunch, if they wish, each morning. Please see, below for the August menu:
What is PBIS?
Innocademy believes in a school-wide culture of caring as a foundation. We believe in nurturing the whole child, not just their academic success. We intentionally focus on each child’s academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth. Our learning environment reflects our values.
We have implemented the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) framework. The focus of this framework is to create a positive school climate that fosters being RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, RESILIENT, and SAFE. All students are deliberately and frequently taught these positive expectations and acknowledged when demonstrating these positive behaviors.
Research shows student learning and growth are positively impacted when the home and school work together. It would be valuable for you to use this common language at home and acknowledge times your child is demonstrating positive behaviors. This partnership conveys the importance of these concepts and encourages your child to BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, BE RESILIENT, and BE SAFE everywhere!
We look forward to working with you as true partners in your child’s education!
Positively yours, Innocademy Team
OLD INFORMATION (In Case You Missed It =)
Donations Needed, Please =)
Each week throughout the school year we recognize students who have demonstrated responsible, respectful, resilient and safe behavior as part of our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) Program. Students receive tickets for modeling these behaviors and are placed in a weekly drawing for small prizes. Last year teachers gave out more than 10, 700 tickets! Wow!!! If you would be willing to donate anything to our prize closet, we would be most appreciative! Donations can happen throughout the year as well! Examples of donations might be… small trinkets, snack size candy bars, etc. We also recognize a staff member each week and would appreciate any $5 giftcards to places such as Starbucks, Biggby, Target, wherever! =). Thank you for considering!
