•     Dear Cushman Families,

             The Cushman School Community would like to thank our Parent Teacher Organization for the gift of a new school sign!  We absolutely love it and are excited that it shines as brightly as our students do!  The students have quickly become comfortable with the school and classroom routines and their smiles in the classroom or on the screen make us smile!

             Together with a team of staff volunteers we are kicking off our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports program (PBIS) -  Bucket Filling Program with some slight changes from last year.  Students can earn recognition for meeting the school-wide expectations.  This year the expectations are as follows:  Take care of yourself, Take care of others, and Take care of our school. Posters are displayed throughout the school and in each classroom.  

             We will be sharing expectations for each category and will celebrate the times we really "shine" with kindness.  If you see your child come home with a I am a Bucket Filler sticker, pencil, note, bracelet, bookmark, or other treat know that they did something positive that was noticed by a staff member.  Each month, we will then celebrate a Bucket Filler of the month and will take a picture and post in our Weekly Peek of the Week and on a school banner. 

              Students will also be earning classroom coins that the teacher will place in a classroom "crayon container".  When this container is full a celebration of sorts will occur and the coins will then be brought to the office for the school-wide container.  Our hope is that by the end of the year our school container will be full and we can have a grand celebration in June! 

              We are excited to get started very soon!
