Additional Information About Park Layne Elementary
We use the PAX Good Behavior Game at Park Layne Elementary to teach students to take responsibility for their actions as part of our school wide Positive Behavior Supports System. We really work with kids to learn to make good choices and reward them for their good choices. Students earn Hot Tickets for being respectful, responsible, peaceful, problem solving learners. Hot Tickets are placed in a class bucket and each teacher picks a Hot Ticket Winner each week to be featured on our live morning announcements. Students get a prize and bring a note home so parents can go on YouTube and watch their child on announcements. We also have monthly PBS Rewards that students earn by displaying positive behavior on 80% of the school days. Rewards include extra recess and ice cream, a Crazy Dance Party, Minute to Win It, popcorn and a movie, and more. We also use a great book called "What Should Danny Do?" to teach kids about their Power to Choose.
We have a Boxtop Contest each year so please save your Boxtops for Education off participating products. Boxtops need to be clipped and sent in in an envelope or ziplock baggie with the child's name and teacher's name. The top collecting students will get a prize at the end of the year and the winning class each month will get our traveling trophy and be featured in the newsletter.
Park Layne students have access to a reading program at home called Raz-Kids. Go to www.raz-kids.com. From there students will put in their teacher's login, find their name and enter their password. Raz-Kids gives students books to read on their level. They can listen to the book, read it independently and then take a quiz over the book to check for understanding. Students can access Raz-Kids all summer long as well.
