Message of Change
The new trimester gives us the opportunity to reflect on the beginning of the year and make any changes that might make the remainder of the year even more successful. There never seems to be enough minutes in the day to get everything done, but hopefully this will get us closer.
The new grading period also gives us time to reflect on our own successes and determine where we go from here. Though our ongoing PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) program, we are finding that students are beginning to embrace the program and are leaning to show the qualities of the R.A.C.E. atmosphere here at The Tomorrow Center. R.A.C.E. is an acronym for Respectful, Achieving, Cooperating and Engaging. Each of the students learns how to incorporate these characteristics into their lives while at school. The school store is stocked with goodies that students can purchase when their fill their cards. A special thank you to all the staff, community members, advisory committee members and parents who donate to the store on a regular basis- you are wonderful and we could not do it without you!
I can’t tell you how proud I am of the leadership these students are beginning to display, we are already seeing how students view themselves and how their role at school is changing. They are becoming leaders to others and more importantly, leaders in their own lives. I am grateful each day for working with a staff that recognizes what a difference this can make in our students’ lives. Without their continued dedication to the process, we would never experience the successes we are already having. They are truly amazing!
