The Self Manager program
at Woodland is one way we promote students becoming actively engaged in making positive behavior choices. You will see Self-Managers recognized in our newsletters and at monthly celebrations. We talk a lot at school about being safe, respectful, and responsible. Learning to regulate your own behavior is a process and our goal is to continue to guide students to grow from where they are at now, towards becoming their best in all areas, including behavior.
If your child has not yet earned a self-manager tag, their teacher is discussing specifically with them areas in which they can make better choices more consistently. We encourage parents to talk about self-management with their student. This is only one of several positive programs we have in place to recognize and reward students for their good choices at Woodland. School-wide we also use Blue Paws to recognize good choices and compassion coins to recognize kind acts. New this year, we are learning Zones of Regulation school-wide to help students identify strategies to keep them on a positive track.
We appreciate the support we receive from parents and families and strongly believe that working together your child has lots of opportunities to grow here at Woodland!
