Caught in the Act
Our efforts to address issues of teasing and bullying continue with the assistance of all the adults in our school community. Our school wide initiative "Caught in the Act", is a method by which we formally encourage and recognize pro-social behaviors. According to research, a school environment in which there are strong adult-student connections in place is an environment which fosters a sense of safety among students. The staff and students at TCS have great connections and "Caught in the Act" is another way for us to foster and acknowledge these relationships. All staff are asked to notice a specific kindness shown by a student or a good choice made during a difficult situation. Once a student, grade K-6 has been "caught" he/she decorates a page to be included in the "Caught in the Act" book located in the upper lobby. As students continue to be "caught", stars, shooting stars, planets and galaxies adorn the upper lobby.
