TYLER ELEMENTARY IS A RAMP SCHOOL!!!!!
Tyler Elementary School received the Recognized ASCA Model Program
(RAMP) designation during a special ceremony at the American School
Counselor Association’s annual conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
On July 2, 2013, George G. Tyler Elementary was honored for establishing
an outstanding school counseling program. The RAMP designation, awarded
to schools whose counseling programs align with the criteria set in the
ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering
a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and creating an
exemplary educational environment. More than 450 schools have received
the RAMP designation since the program’s inception.
A comprehensive program encompasses three areas: academic,
personal/social, and career development. Counselors are dedicated to
helping students develop and succeed in each of these areas.
Mrs. Chamberlain is here to help in any way possible! J
We encourage all of our students and adults at Tyler to use the P.A.W.S. strategy to communicate positively with others, and to apply it to their academic pursuits. P.A.W.S. stands for: Plan (what they are going to say or do)-> Act (responsibly)->Win (with kindness)-> Succeed (in school and with friends).
We have a character building program at Tyler called Perilla's Pearls!
Each staff member has business cards in their ID badge holders
with the 6 pillars of character. If they see a child performing a
"random act of kindness" they can award them a Perilla's Pearl.
Each Monday the students who have earned one meet in the front lobby
after announcements, get their pictures taken, and then the coupons
are put into a drawing for $1 off at the school store.
The pictures are hung on the wall outside of Mrs. Chamberlain's office, and when
the year is over they are placed in a photo album in the library.
It is wonderful to see how many students we have who exemplify
the Character Pillars!
