Welcome Back!
Dear Students and Families,

It is amazing how quickly the time flies.  We are rapidly approaching the end of the school year.  There have been many changes this school year that will affect your child's education. 

As you know, PA has opted out of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law by implementing a new teacher and school evaluation process, along with adopting the common core standards in PA.  They are now referred to as PA Core standards.  If you are interested to learn more about the PA Core standards, please visit PDE-SAS.  If you are interested in seeing how Norwood School compares to other schools in the District and/or state, please take a look at our School Performance Profile.

As always, I would be happy to answer any questions you have regarding student performance both academically and behaviorally.

Sincerely,

Frank DiLeo

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS)

Norwood School's PBIS program was awarded the Tier 1 recognition and will be receiving our banner at the PBIS Forum in Hershey, PA on May 29, 2014.

Students have consistently demonstrated our core values of respect, responsibility and honesty.

Students who demonstrate these values through a single action have an opportunity to earn a gold coin from any staff member.  Students have numerous options regarding gold coins.  Please check our website to look at options for elementary and middle level students.

Students who demonstrate these values consistently throughout the month have an opportunity to earn the month's port reward.  Since we are the Bucs, our port system takes students around the world at a different stop each month.  Port rewards range from extra recess, to minute-to-win-it assemblies to fun centers.  Students who miss port because they have not demonstrated one or more of the core values throughout the month will meet with a teacher in a reflection room to discuss a plan to make port next month.

PBIS is a nation-wide system that is designed to encourage positive behavior.  www.pbis.org
