Dear Parents/Guardians and Students of SME,
Welcome back! We are so excited to start another school year with you! We have had a few changes in staff this year. Below please find the list of new staff members. We are pleased to have such a great group of people here at Stratton Meadows to work with your students!
Krissy Hopper - Principal's Secretary

Jessica Brownlee - 2nd grade

We will continue using our Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) with our PAWS matrix and Love and Logic.
P-A-W-S stands for: P-Positive attitude! A-Act responsibly! W-Wise choices! S-Show respect! The PAWS Matrix outlines behavior expectations for all students in all areas of the building (Classroom, Hallway, Bathrooms, Auditorium, Bus, Playground, and Cafeteria). We will have positive incentives and students will be rewarded with PAW tickets. PAW tickets can be given to any student demonstrating exceptional behavior. We will have posters around the school that outline our expectations and make it easy for students to get “caught being good!” Love and Logic helps students understand natural consequences to behavior and builds responsibility for their actions.
For Social/Emotional Learning, we implement the Sanford Harmony curriculum in all grades. This helps our students with building relationships, building community and problem-solving. We believe its success can be spread throughout the school, so all students have coping skills and are better able to meet their own relationship needs. We are very excited about this!
Dr. Christina Clayton
