Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
EMERALD SHORES ELEMENTARY is a Positive Behavior Support School. We positively recognize behaviors that are conducive to learning! Our school-wide expectations are listed above. Please review them with your child. As a school-wide reward system for demonstrating these behaviors, each child has the opportunity to earn Panther Cash that can be used to purchase admission to special events and/or special items. If a child is unable to meet the school-wide expectations, depending on the level of infraction, corrective action in accordance with Marion County Public Schools Code of Student Conduct will be implemented.
TV Broadcast Studio
Our studio televises live announcements each morning. Student recognition is featured. Students operate the entire show with supervision from the media specialist. The crew consists of anchors, camera, sound and video mixer technicians, announcers, and assistants.
School improvement funds are used to provide remedial programs to non-proficient reading students after school. Several teachers also offer tutorial programs on their own for non-proficient students as a way to assist students meeting state standards.
We also offer several enrichment clubs for varying periods of time during the year.
Each morning before school we open our Media Lab to students needing to work on FastMath and take Accelerated Reader quizzes. Students must eat breakfast first and are dismissed to class at 7:45.
