Woodland ES Pride Pledge
As I walk through the doors of Woodland each day,
I strive to persevere in every way.
I will respect myself, all people, and things.
Showing integrity when no one is looking.
Being disciplined is how I know I will succeed,
And with empathy, I will understand all of those in need.
We are honored. We are proud. We are Woodland.
Wildcats show PRIDE
- Perseverance – Working hard no matter what, without giving up
- Respect – Having high regard for themselves, all people and things
- Integrity – Doing what is right, even when no one is watching
- Discipline – Exercising control of one's self, choices, and actions
- Empathy – Understanding and sharing the feelings of another in a compassionate way
Teachers and staff reinforce these characteristics through verbal praise and the use of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Rewards.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS Rewards is a digital schoolwide management system. With PBIS Rewards, we can clearly see how all teachers and staff are utilizing PBIS and how PRIDE expectations are improving our school culture. To learn more, you can view the PBIS Parent Info videos on YouTube - English Video, Spanish Video.
- Once a month, PBIS points can be redeemed at the Woodland School Store.
- Students will also get to attend a quarterly PRIDE party as long as they reach the point goal to attend.
Woodland is a school where all students are afforded an education within an enriching, nurturing, and challenging learning environment. We believe a collective partnership with students, parents, staff, and the community is essential in cultivating and sustaining total school pride through a school-wide behavior expectations and management system. This management system is grounded in recognizing acceptable behaviors and explicit teaching, communication and modeling of desired behaviors. The purpose of this plan is to help students make appropriate choices, accept responsibility for their behaviors, and understand that their behaviors have consequences for themselves and others.
Wildcats who are not showing PRIDE
Students who choose not to exercise the discipline specified in our school-wide behavioral management and expectations plan which interferes with the optimal learning environment for all students will receive consequences based on Fulton County Schools Student Code of Conduct & Discipline Handbook. The degree of consequence imposed will be in proportion to the severity of the behavior. One or more of these consequences will be used to help students refocus when they exhibit undisciplined behaviors:
- Conference with the student
- Phone call to parent(s)
- Time out within the classroom
- Loss of a privilege
- Change seat
- Parent conference
- Natural consequences (action plan, letter of apology, etc.)
- Parent phone call
- Documented referral
We, at Woodland Elementary, are committed to being proactive and maintaining a structured learning atmosphere that reinforces positive actions and outcomes through mutual kindness, respect, and consistency. Being disciplined members of the community positively affects everyone and the school learning environment collectively.
