Welcome to Tiger Land: Important information for parents & students.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year in Tiger Land! We welcome back our returning students and their families and welcome aboard our new students and their families. This school year students will be allow to come into the building at 9:00 a.m. The arrival bell rings at 9:10 a.m. and the tardy bell will ring at 9:20 a.m. Students who report to school after the Tardy Bell will need to be signed into school by their parent/guardian. The student will then report to Tardy Central for a entrance pass to their class. Dismissal bell will ring at 3:45 p.m.
This school year our staff is very excited to start a new adventure with our students. Dillard has been select to be a Project Based Learning school. What is PBL? Project Based Learning is a way of teaching in which students gain not only knowledge but also important skills. There will be small groups working on a PBL for an extended period of time to investigate and inspect an engaging question, problem or challenge. Our PBL classes will be held in the last period of the day. Some examples include:Working with Drones, Top Chef, Photography, Fashion Design and many more.
We continue to be a PBIS School and have earned a Green Ribbon recognition for our Positive Behavior Instructional Support programs. We do indeed ROAR like tigers each day and we use our Tiger ROAR Pledge to guide our actions and procedures.
