PBIS at Cove Creek
In late October Cove Creek kicked off our school-wide PBIS (Positive Behaviors, Interventions and Supports) program with an assembly.  Several members of the ASU Cheerleading Squad, members of the Women's Basketball Team and Yosef himself came out to show their support in getting our students and staff excited about PBIS logo:  

C - Be a Responsible Citizen        
C - Make Good Choices
S - Achieve Success

We have always had an awesome school and have recognized students for their positive behavior, good choices and successes.  But now we have raised the bar and put an added emphasis on those same expectations as they pertain to the classroom, the cafeteria, the bathrooms, our hallways, the playground and the bus.

In addition to classroom rewards, teachers in all areas can now catch individual students following the expectations and give them a Red Raider.  Classrooms of students can be given White Raiders for demonstrating these achievements. Individual classrooms are having celebrations when they meet their White Raider goal.  Also, posters are being placed in the six areas to remind everyone of the expectations.  We are very proud of the great things that are happening as a result of PBIS at Cove Creek.  Keep up the good work students!

The homeroom winner of the Fall Festival Pumpkin Book Character contest was Mrs. Hensley's kindergarten class!  All the money collected was able to go to the charity of their choice which was the Seby B.

Annual Woolly Worm Races
Mrs. Pfister and Mrs. Reece's second graders searched high and low for several days before finally gathering all their woolly worms for their annual race which took place Friday, October 16.  They cheered each other on with great enthusiasm, as well as their woolly little friends.  Each race took anywhere from 3-5 min. and the suspense was endearing.  From the Woolly Worm perspective, "It is a long way to the top!  And it is easy to get distracted with all that noise and the gusty breezes coming up from behind you!" Lots of laughs were shared and even a few tears shed, but it was a memorable afternoon for these second graders and their spectators.  It was all about making memories and having fun while you learn.  Congratulations to each and every second grader and their woolly worm racers!  (PS. No woolly worms were harmed in the races!)   
Reading & Rolling

A Reading and Rolling Celebration


Watauga County elementary students participated in Reading and Rolling again this past summer. Sponsored by the Friends of the Watauga County Library, Reading and Rolling is a program which encourages the love of reading through the delivery of books to students in their homes. For the past twelve summers, volunteers have each made four deliveries to approximately sixty children who might not be able to get to a library.

On October 7, Ms. Carolyn Dell Walters, librarian at Cove Creek Elementary School, hosted a Reading and Rolling celebration in her library.  She invited the public librarians who worked so hard to fill those 60 book sacks every two weeks. Ms. Walters also included the volunteers who delivered books in the Cove Creek area, but the most important guests were the twenty three students who completed the summer program.

In the photo Cove Creek students are holding new books which were presented to the school in their honor.  Friends of the Library funded the book purchases for all participating schools.
