Wallowa Elementary School

Wallowa Elementary Teachers Go to School!

 

                                                                                      Nancy Roberts with Dr. Anita Archer at the Oregon RTIi Annual Conference

 

On April 25th and 26th, many of Wallowa Elementary's teachers and principal attended an Oregon Response to Instruction and Intervention Annual Conference in Eugene, Oregon.  This action packed two day conference offered keynote speeches from nationally recognized educators, Dr. Anita Archer and Dr. Kevin Feldman.  Break out sessions filled the majority of the two days so teachers could pick and choose what best matched their professional learning goals.  

All of the sessions and keynote speeches discussed a variety of topics ranging from math and reading to behavior.  The focus of the entire conference was Reponse to Instruction and Intervention (RTIi).  Wallowa Elementary School recieved a grant last spring to help implement RTIi.  The grant helps pay for the coaching, implementation, and conferences the teachers attend.  

 

 

Crazy Hair and Hats for Dr. Seuss Week!

 

The walls in the school are covered with PBIS posters as staff move to implement this behavior program for the 2017-2018 school year.   PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports.  It is a popular and well known school-wide behavior program for schools.  Staff have been learning about and creating the program specifically for WES for the past 2 years and are ready to implement it this year.  "PBIS includes preventative and responsive approaches that may be effectively implemented with all students in a classroom and intensified to support small groups or a few individual students. PBIS strategies are important tools to decrease disruptions, increase instructional time, and improve student social behavior and academic outcomes." (pbis.org website)  The WES staff are excited to implement PBIS!
