In the Classroom
"Our Student Success Tool"
Each school has a Learning Facilitator (LF), who monitors the Literacy First process.
During this process, teachers learn and apply new research-based strategies for teaching, student engagement, and monitoring the individual learning of all students. Literacy First has changed how we teach reading, as many of the strategies are applied during math, social studies, science, etc.
Olweus Bully Prevention
"Oatville School is a Bully-Free Zone"
Oatville students and staff work very hard to make our school a bully-free place.
At Oatville our definition of bullying behavior is behavior that is unfair, has an imbalance of power, is hurtful, is done on purpose, and is repeated. This includes physical, verbal, social, emotional, or cyber bullying. Please watch future newsletters for additional ways to keep Oatville Indians safe.
Capturing Kids Hearts
"If you have a kid's heart...you have a child's mind."
Our teachers and staff are practicing the strategies of "Capturing Kids Hearts" to transform our classrooms into high-achieving centers of learning. By implementing these strategies we are experiencing fewer tardies, higher attendance, lower discipline referrals, fewer dropouts, and increased graduation rates.
