Standards & Assessment Day

 
Principal's Message

 

Hello,

 
Things are off to a great start here at Dexter McCarty. We have spent the past two weeks introducing students to our school wide expectations through our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) program.  This program allows us to clearly outline our expectations for student behavior in all areas of the building at all times of the day.  Spending the time to do this allows our students to have a clear understanding of what the rules are ahead of time so that there are no surprises to them in terms of their behavior in a specific situation or location.   In addition, all teachers have rolled out their classroom expectations to students in terms of management in their classroom and other academic expectations they may have for your child.  If you have questions regarding any of this please feel free to email your student's teachers or call our office.  
 
On another positive note, we our first SUCCESS lesson of the year introduced our character trait of the month to all students.  September's trait was "Respect".  Students participated in a lesson within which respect was defined.  Examples were also provided and discussed, which showed and modeled what it looks like to be genuinely respectful of others. Each month all staff will be on the lookout for students exhibiting respectful behavior.  Students that they identify will then have their name and action placed on a sticky note in our front display case so that everyone that enters the building can witness the examples that are being set.  At the end of each month those students that are recognized will be presented to the entire student body for exhibiting and modeling that trait.  
 
Finally, I want to take this opportunity to introduce our new staff members to you:
 
Kayla  Burks           Educational Assistant
Dayana Corona      Educational Assistant / Data Entry Person
Dan Gola                Educational Assistant
Debbie Martin         Receptionist
James Mayik          6th Grade Science
Carolyn Mazzucca  Kitchen Manager
Matthew O'Reilly    7th Grade Science
Rosie Sanchez       ELL Liason
 
They all have already proven to be valuable additions to our McCarty Family!
 
We thank you for allowing us to teach your students.  If you have questions or want to know more information about what is going on during our day please don't hesitate to call or email.  We look forward to a great year.  
 
At Dexter McCarty Middle School, we teach to cause a positive result!
 

John George
