Principal's Message

    

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 school year! I am looking forward to a fresh start with your children. This school year we will focus on high academic achievement as well as acquiring an “I Can” attitude. I am a firm believer that all students can and will achieve excellence if they truly believe they can! This year, we will assure that each student is given the opportunity to believe in him or herself and thus be a successful student. With that in mind, I am so very excited to tell you about our new “I Can” Program that will be implemented this coming school year.

This new, unique and exciting Behavior Incentive Program will encourage and reward students for displaying positive attitudes and behaviors throughout the school day. Any teacher or staff member at Durban Avenue School who "catches" a student displaying positive behaviors at any time will give that student an “I CAN” slip. The students will write their names and the reason for getting the recognition on the slip and place it in their class “I CAN” recycling bin located in their classroom. At the conclusion of each month, I will pick a winner from each class “I CAN” recycling bin during lunch. Students will be rewarded with prizes that they will help choose at the start of the school year. Class rewards will also occur during the year. This program was developed to encourage and foster expected appropriate behaviors throughout the day but also to bring out the positive in all. Believing in oneself and being positive is the pathway to being a successful student. Students have to believe that they can succeed and they will. We are all special and each of us has our own strengths and good qualities. Each student should be rewarded for his or hers! I would like to thank HEPTO for supporting this new program and providing the financial support for its implementation.

So….Stay Positive and Believe that You Can!

Repeat after me….”I Can Succeed!!”  

Sincerely, 

Mrs. Hensz

Principal
