ATTENTION PARENTS!

OES is proudly on its third year of participating in…

THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE!

When: JANUARY 22-25, 2018

This is a proactive, positive, nationwide bullying prevention initiative where students will receive a GKC Checklist with 50 kind acts to complete throughout the week.  Please encourage your child to complete the kind acts checklist at school and show the world that… KINDNESS MATTERS!  (And just as a little added incentive the classroom with the highest percentage of kind acts completed wins a Movie and Popcorn Party!)

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE….

NEW THIS YEAR students will also receive the “Family Edition” of the GKC to be completed at home and in the community.  Please watch for this list to come home in your child’s Wednesday folder.  We at OES encourage families to work on this checklist together to continue sending the message that… KINDNESS MATTERS!

What is “THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE?”

The Great Kindness Challenge (GKC) was created by and organization called “Kids for Peace” to provide schools with a tool for creating a positive school environment.  In 2017, 10,493,866 students participated and performed over half a billion acts of kindness nationwide.  OES students have been participating in the initiative for the past two years and are proud to play an important role in spreading the message that KINDNESS MATTERS!

OROFINO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL VISION STATEMENT 

“Mini-Maniacs are Focused on Learning!”

 

Orofino Elementary School’s Vision is to create a challenging learning

environment that encourages high expectations for success through

development-appropriate instruction that allows for creativity,

problem solving, individual differences, and learning styles.

Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment.

Students’ growth and self-esteem are fostered by positive relationships with

students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community

OROFINO ELEMENTARY CORE BELIEFS

 ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN AND EACH IS A VALUED INDIVIDUAL WITH UNIQUE PHYSICAL, SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, AND INTELLECTUAL NEEDS.

  STUDENT LEARNING, IN THE CORE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM, IS THE PRIORITY OF OROFINO ELEMENTARY.

 SCHOOLS DEVELOP CONFIDENT, SELF-DIRECTED, LIFELONG LEARNERS WHO WILL BECOME RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS IN TOMORROW’S WORKFORCE AND COMMUNITY.

SCHOOLS TEACH TO, AND MODEL A UNIVERSAL SET OF BASIC VALUES: HONESTY, SELF-DISCIPLINE, RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, AND A STRONG WORK ETHIC.

SCHOOLS PROVIDE A SAFE, POSITIVE, ORGANIZED SETTING WITH CLEARLY DEFINED BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS.

  PARENTS ARE THE FIRST AND PRIMARY TEACHERS. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN’S BASIC NEEDS AND VALUES.
