Goldonna looking forward to new year and improved programs


Goldonna Elementary and Jr. High held a registration event Aug. 8. Principal Kendria Sanders is looking forward to revamping the school’s PBIS program, the Jr. High’s Response To Intervention (RTI) program and its gardening.

While the other PBIS program was successful, Sanders said it’s time for a new one. With the RTI program, teachers are going in where students’ skills end to build them up to where they need to be.

While the school has always grown flowers in the beds around the buildings, they will now grow vegetables. Shrubs around the perimeters were torn up. Sanders plans to build raised beds so every classroom can have its own garden. This will be a partnership with the school’s new 4-H leader Scott Ivey, the new special education teacher for the Jr. High.
