The SEAL Motto

Seal Behavior & the IUSD Civility Policy:  We continually teach and review our Seal expectations. Every class will be emphasizing and reinforcing the positive and desired behaviors we seek for the students. Throughout the year we will have a Seal Store and Raffles to reward students who show the three Rs of Seal behavior:

Seal Motto:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Ready

Review these key characteristics with your children.

Springbrook Elementary School-Wide Matrix

Our district and school staff recognize the role parents play in modeling and reinforcing our student expectations. Our district’s Civility Policy encourages, “mutual respect, civility, and orderly conduct among district employees, parents, and the public … to maintain, to the extent possible and reasonable, a safe, harassment-free workplace for our students and staff.”  Thank you for modeling that behavior and reinforcing Seal behavior while on campus.

Donated Reinforcers

If you would like to donate reinforcers for students, we gladly accept your donations. Students like new or slightly used stuffed toys, little games, mini art kits, and gift certificates from various locations such as, Rainforest Café, frozen yogurt shops, Rubys, and various other local restaurants. We appreciate your support in locating and collecting these incentives for our Seals. We’d like to pass many out throughout the year!
