T-Birds 101
In T-Birds 101 students learn important life skills such as Bully Proofing and conflict resolution. They also are taught the character traits of respect, responsibility, caring, fairness, trustworthiness, and citizenship. In the younger grades there is a focus on feeling identification and understanding.
T-Birds 101 class is taught by Ms. O'Brien. This is her 26th year of teaching elementary school and her 8th year of teaching T-Birds 101 at Arrowhead Elementary.  Ms. O'Brien lives happily with 2 children, 3 dogs and a cat.  She holds Master Degrees in both Counseling and Educational Leadership. Ms. O'Brien is also Arrowhead’s PBS coordinator. The 2014-2015 school year is Arrowhead’s 10th year of PBS implementation. School-wide Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is a systems approach to increasing appropriate behavior from the student body. We have set expectations in all areas of the school including the classroom, hallways, cafeteria, restrooms and playground. These expectations are the 3Bs!! Be Safe. Be Respectful. Be Responsible. These expectations are taught and reinforced throughout the school year. Students are rewarded for following the expectations with Bug awards, class compliments and Super Bee Awards. All students participate in the 3B Poster Contest, held in January, and the 3B Writing Contest held in April.
We also honor those students who are exceptional at modeling the six character traits. We have 7 assemblies throughout the year where they are presented with a certificate. Pictures are taken and later posted on the school website. We notify parents ahead of time if their student is selected so they can attend the assembly as well.
Our goal at Arrowhead Elementary is to reinforce positive behavior, provide students with tools to be successful at school as well as lay a foundation for them to become productive adults.
