Dorena K/1 classes visit the
Fire Station to learn safety
For the Sentinel
n Oct. 8, Dorena students visited the
Cottage Grove Fire Station to learn
about Fire safety. Students learned about
making fi re safety plans for their home.
They also practiced holding and spraying
the fi re hose. They learned to crawl and
stay low to get out of their house and to
a designated safe place outside the home.
Students also watched the fi reman put his
suit, mask and helmet on. They practiced
running to him to remember he is a safe
person. Safety is school emphasis, and fi re
safety is not only important at school. It’s
an important issue for home safety as well.
Students kick off EBIS
program at Grove
Christian Camp
tudents at Dorena School
kicked off the start of the
Effective Behavior and Instruc-
tional Support program with
a fi eld day at Grove Christian
Camp. Activities for the day
emphasized team building and
an opportunity to practice the
Panther EBIS rules away from

know that success is built upon
a community of learners who
practice our fi ve EBIS expecta-
O N , OH CG!

Be responsible, Be Here, and
Be Gritty. Students are awarded
Pride Panther Bucks for excel-
lent behavior. The school also
teaches a “savings” plan where
students bank bucks for future
purchases at the student store.
At the end of the year, students
use their Pride Bucks savings to
attend a spring Field Day at the
Grove camp in May. ”
