FBI Winners At CIA

FBI stands for fantastic behavior investigation. Students receive behavior tickets from staff for showing FBI behavior. An example would be standing quietly in line during transition times. Another would be helping a friend. Every Thursday during snack, tickets are drawn and prizes or privilege coupons are presented. Students respond well to our positive behavior system.

This is a photo of this week's winners.

Fat Tuesday Parade at Crestview

Today students from CIA paraded through Crestview Care Center carrying floats adorned with balloons, feathers and all kinds of sparkles.  Students worked in groups last week to create these wonderful floats.  On Monday, students created Mardi Gras masks to wear for this special occasion.   The parade included 78 students and 9 adults from the after school program.  Here are a couple short video clips from the parade.
