FREDERICKTOWN — Fredericktown Elementary School launched a new positive behavior program this school year, and the school board on Tuesday learned more about it.
First-grade teacher Robin McClay and three students, first-graders Caroline Reiss and Taylor Thorne, and fifth-grader Macy Thorne, presented the official song for the program. Called “We CARE,” the song helps students remember to practice citizenship, accountability, respect and empathy. A friendly competition between classes encourages positive behaviors, and each week awards are presented to classrooms. For instance, the Golden Sponge award goes to the class with the fewest trips to the school nurse and the fewest absences, the Golden Broom goes to the cleanest classroom and the Golden Tray is awarded to the class that leaves their area of the cafeteria the cleanest.
The rest of the meeting, Superintendent Matt Chrispin told the News, was largely routine. He said he did discuss the district’s state report card results with the board.
“We’re excited to hit 100 percent on the indicators,” he said. “We’ve done well in some areas, and there are some areas in which we need to improve. We will work on that.”
