Our classroom SOAR expectations

At East Lake School, we believe in fostering a positive and supportive learning environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our SOAR Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Matrix is designed to promote a culture of respect, responsibility, and safety throughout our school community.

What is SOAR?

SOAR represents our core values and expectations for behaviour:

  • Safe: We prioritize the safety and well-being of all members of our school community. Students are encouraged to make choices that promote physical and emotional safety in all settings, including classrooms, hallways, and common areas.
  • Organized: We value organization and structure as essential components of a productive learning environment. Students are expected to demonstrate organization in their materials, time management, and interactions to maximize their learning potential.
  • Accountable: Accountability is key to fostering a sense of responsibility and ownership among our students. We encourage students to take responsibility for their actions, choices, and academic progress, both individually and as members of the school community.
  • Respectful: Respect is at the heart of our school culture. We promote respect for oneself, peers, adults, and the learning environment. Students are encouraged to demonstrate kindness, empathy, and appreciation for diversity in all interactions.

How Does the SOAR Matrix Work?

Our SOAR Matrix outlines specific behavioural expectations aligned with each component of SOAR These expectations are reinforced through explicit teaching, modelling, positive reinforcement, and consistent feedback. By clearly defining expected behaviours and acknowledging students' efforts to meet these expectations, we create a positive and inclusive school climate where all students can succeed.
