Each day our dedicated staff members are teaming up and collaborating to help each child reach his or her goals to become the best and brightest person he or she can be.

Healthy Youth Survey

Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey

Our district is participating in the Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th - 21st.

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students' answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.

Making a Difference at Nob Hill Elementary

Article

Nob Hill Elementary is in its second year of implementing the PBIS intervention program Check-In/Check-Out (CICO). Students nominated for the program have the opportunity to check in with an adult each morning to set a daily goal and receive encouragement. Teachers provide feedback on a point sheet throughout the day. At the end of the day the student checks out with an adult to discuss how the day went. The point sheet is sent home for the parents to review, then sign and return with their child the next day.

To read more about CICO, please download the full article available on the left.
