Howl-A-Palooza Incentive Program
The Howl-A-palooza incentive program is designed to provide positive recognition to students in the areas of attendance, behavior, and achievement. The Howl-A-palooza guidelines are as follows:
* No more than two absences, tardies, or early outs during the six week period. Exception: If a student misses three or more consecutive days, he or she MAY be exempted if a parent provides a doctor's note to the principal. The exemption may only be used once per student.
* No behavior problems
* 90% of homework completed
* 90% of classwork completed to the best of the student's ability
At the end of each six-week period, students who qualify will receive a laminated "Howl-a-palooza" tag. They will also get to participate in the Howl-a-palooza activity for that period.
Next Howl-a-palooza event: FLUSH TANK
The Magnificent Seven
The Magnificent Seven are 7 behavior standards for students to learn and follow to the best of their ability. At Cottonwood we are highlighting one of the seven standards every week for students to practice and follow. The Magnificent Seven standards are:
Standard 1: Cottonwood Elementary is a family, and we will always treat each other with respect and kindness.
Standard 2: Do your best to learn the names of all Cottonwood staff members, and greet them by name whenever possible.
Standard 3: Greet visitors, and always make them feel welcome. This includes community members, parents, and guest teachers.
Standard 4: Always remember to say "thank you" when someone gives you something.
Standard 5: You should recognize the accomplishments of others, and congratulate them for their achievements.
Standard 6: Please do not litter on our campus, or allow trash to remain on the ground or floor.
Standard 7: Give your best effort to be as organized as possible.
Our Future is Bright!
Message from the Principal:
Dear Parents, Students, and Cottonwood Community,
Welcome back to what promises to be an exciting, fun-filled, and very rewarding school year. It's great to see all our Coyote students again, and we'd especially like to welcome all our new Cottonwood families to our community. As always, our goal is to provide our students with top-notch academic instruction in all subject areas, while also building an environment of courtesy and mutual respect. It is our sincere belief that with all of us -- staff members, parents, and students -- working together, Cottonwood will soon be among the very best schools in the High Desert.
This year we'll be continuing with the Magnificent Seven Behavior Standards which you can find on the left side of this webpage. Also, we'll be making an exciting change to our Howl-a-Palooza Incentive Program. This year, Howl-a-Palooza will be sponsored by Beef O'Brady's Sports Grill, located on Main Street just west of the freeway (where the old Bob's Big Boy used to be). In addition to hosting a dinner for all students who earn the six Howl-a-Palooza tags, Beef O'Brady's will have representatives at Cottonwood for our various events, and even contribute to our "Fear Factor" activity by holding an Atomic Wings Challenge (for staff members and parents only . . . sorry kids!). Please join me in welcoming Beef's to the Cottonwood family!
And of course, please feel free to contact me or Mr. Sheffield whenever you have questions, concerns, or ideas that will help us serve you better. We look forward to working with you, and creating another year of memories for you and your family.
