Oberhouse performs

        Originally prompted by a 2021 shooting in Collierville, Tennessee, which resulted in the death of the mother of Wes King, UF director of bands, the theme of the concert revolved around loss and served as a tribute to those who have been impacted by a recent loss, particularly in light of the COVID pandemic.
R.C. Waters Top Class Dojos
        R.C. Waters Elementary participates in a school-wide initiative called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) – a process for creating a safe and productive learning environment.
        The school has adopted a unified set of expectations for behavior, in place in every classroom and non-classroom setting in the school – Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready.
        Student behavior is documented using a tool called Class Dojo, a system that reinforces positive behaviors and quickly engages students in becoming accountable for their own choices. On a scheduled rotation, students are able to “shop” from the Dojo reward cart using the points they have earned for meeting the behavior expectations.
        The top Class Dojo winners for January include:
        Kindergarten: Laine McGuire, Ryenn Lipstraw, Lacie Epling, Sophia Boals, Thomas Reinhart and Ever Ozeimski.
        First grade: Jase Chambers, Waylon Ritter, Lila Meyers, Jonathan Adams, Camden Damron, Levi Steinmetz and Maggie Chaffee.
        Second grade: Delilah Tenney, Natalie Helle, Harper Kuli, Alivia March, Nora Schiller, Leilyn Sturgill, Marley Graber, Addisynn Lenke and Amaya Williams.
        Third grade: Bridget Berry, Keegan Garlock, Wyatt Wren, Xander Flower, Cambria Alcala, Wesley Cole, Savannah Goff, Summer Jacobsen, Eden Ozeimski and Myka Moss.
