Welcome to All Things E.Q. - We are here to support you! Hello Parents,
I hope you and your family are well. As Paseo Hills Teachers work hard to help your children continue their academic learning at home, we also wanted to provide you with additional resources to support their emotional development as well.
During this time of enormous change, and social-distancing, it can be helpful to feel connected to the broader school community. So, each week we will focus on a weekly motto altogether.
The motto this week is:
I adapt and make the most of change.
Each week, I will provide a brief video highlighting the key insights for the week. I will also include, via the links below resources and activities that you may find helpful to do with your child.
Here are the resources I mentioned in the video above:
- Key Insights with Reflection Question
- Sentence Starter
- Vitamin E.Q. - The Family Calendar
- Word of the Day
- Motto Booklet (Primary Grades)
- Motto 360 (Upper Grades)
- How to talk with your child about COVID-19
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Welcome to 7th Grade
7th grade can be a challenging and exciting time for students, parents, and staff. Teacher websites and email through the PowerSchool platform may be helpful communication for parents and students about the middle school experience. The purpose of Paseo Hills Middle School is to give students the skills they will need to meet 6th, 7th and 8th grade standards so that they may be successful in high school.
Rattlers Rock PBIS
It is the belief of Paseo Hills Middle School Staff that 6th, 7th and 8th grade students are ready to assume responsibility for their behavior. Thus, they will participate in our Rattlers ROCK! Program. ROCK stands for: Rattlers show Respect, Own responsibility, and Care through Kindness.
It is the goal of Paseo Hills to provide all students with behavioral expectations that are clearly defined, taught and reinforced, to encourage positive relationships and exemplary citizenship. Our student discipline data shows that students are being sent to the office for defiance/disrespect and minor aggressive acts. When that happens, they are not learning, and this interferes with the learning of others. We need to help all of our students to be successful academically and behaviorally. When students struggle with reading—we teach. When students struggle with math or music—we teach. When students struggle with behavior we need to teach them how to succeed.
