Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible

“No matter what reading test is administered, children who read every day will outperform children who do not.” – unknown

Pound’s Academic Goal:
All students will increase reading and math capacity through teacher directed active learning strategies measured by content evidence, demonstration, and the defense of an opinion.

Pound’s Organizational Goal:
Teachers and staff will use Boys Town language in supporting social emotional learning for students who struggle and to increase students’ positive behavior choices. Using the Boys Town model, room 105 (Quiet Room) will support students in need of ‘out-of-class’ movement with the goal of returning students to class ready-to-learn in a timely manner.
