Our school-wide behavior management
approach here at North Jones is "High 5".
It is a
school-wide system of supports that include proactive
strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting
appropriate student behaviors in our school environment.
Throughout this system, a continuum of positive behavior
support for all our students is implemented in areas
including the classroom and non-classroom settings
(hallways, cafeteria, bus, restrooms, and playground).
The school focus is to shift the emphasis from being
reactive in addressing behaviors and social skills to
being proactive in prevention. We, as a building and
community, emphasize the teaching of appropriate behaviors
through modeling, teaching, activities, and positive
rewards. Our building's High Five rules for all
students to recognize in school are as follows:
Respect the Environment
Ready to Learn
See You at the Pole
December 11-December 19...Scholastic Book Fair @ Your Library
December 19...60% Student Day

LOCAL EDUCATOR ACCEPTED TO SUMMER ARCHAEOLOGY WORKSHOP
Adrienne Mobley was selected to participate in a weeklong summer workshop for educators at the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center in Cortez, Colorado.
Mrs. Mobley teaches third grade at North Jones Elementary School.
She was one of more than 300 teachers from across the United States who applied for 80 scholar positions in two sessions of the workshop, Mesa Verde National Park: Convergences and Crossroads in the American Southwest.
The workshop is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of its Landmarks of American History and Culture program.
Mrs. Mobley worked with educators, archaeologists, and American Indian scholars to learn about archaeology, history,and culture at Mesa Verde National Park, an archaeological and historical landmark that is one of the world’s greatest archaeological preserves.
She also took part in Crow Canyon’s current excavation of a Basketmaker III archaeological site that was inhabited by the ancestral Pueblo Indians during a time that included rapid population growth and change.
“I am extremely grateful that NEH and Crow Canyon provided this learning experience. This opportunity provided me with an amazing hands-on learning experience. I have been able to share my knowledge about the culture of this region with my students. We recently completed a unit on archaeology. My students were given the opportunity to explore and categorize artifacts from this region through The Bureau of Land Management and Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores, Colorado. We borrowed a general survey kit, including pottery shards, bone, stone, and vegetal artifacts, that represent aspects of the Ancestral Puebloean culture.”
