We have ventured into the land of HOUSES at Wayne Center Elementary! Since we are the “Home of the Tigers,” we have four different HOUSES all represented by a type of tiger listed below. A group of tigers is called an Ambush! Friday, we held a school wide sorting party for our students! Each child chose a confetti flick stick and was randomly sorted into one of the following houses: Caspian, Sumatran, Malayan, or Siberian!
We also held a staff reveal in afternoon for the students as well!
Students will remain in their house group until they leave Wayne Center as 5th graders. They were given a House T-shirt to keep! We would like them to wear their HOUSE T-shirt on HOUSE Days!
Along with our R.O.A.R motto, our new HOUSE system will help promote good character, academic success, school spirit, a team atmosphere, and a culture of excellence while continuing to build a supportive community in our school. A couple of our HOUSE expectations are that students and staff will uplift and inspire each other and will not be allowed to put down others or make disparaging remarks about other HOUSES in cruel, unkind, or demeaning ways.
Each HOUSE is composed of every child in the school — teachers, faculty, bus drivers and staff — allowing students to socialize with one another across grades and with positive adult role models beyond just the classroom setting.
Throughout the year, the HOUSES will compete against one another in a variety of competitions by accumulating HOUSE points. Individual students can also accumulate points through our PBIS Rewards system for their HOUSE based on behavior and academic success.
Our annual field day will now turn into a HOUSE Competition the last week of school. At the end of the year, and all in good fun, the HOUSE with the most points wins the House Championship — and all the honor and glory that comes with it!
We are excited to be implementing the HOUSE system at Wayne Center Elementary! Our next HOUSE day will be next Friday, January 24, 2020! Please remind your child to wear their HOUSE T-shirt that day!
