Welcome to Isanti Intermediate School and School For All Seasons! My name is Mark Ziebarth and I am lucky enough to be the principal of two outstanding schools located in the same building. We have been at our current location in Isanti, Minnesota since 2006, and I have been the principal since the building opened.
School For All Seasons is a Kindergarten through 5th grade Flexible Learning Year school that starts in August and has a focus on science, technology, environment, arts, and mathematics. We are an optional program and part of Cambridge-Isanti Public Schools. Students at School For All Seasons have science every day and tend to a school garden space and spend many hours outside learning about their environment.
Isanti Intermediate School services students in grades 3, 4, and 5 in the Isanti area. We are a school that believes in building students of character and providing our students with experiences that sharpen their skills and allow for exploring their interests. Our students participate in activities like building bird houses, creating “wax museums”, tending to a school garden, and doing a variety of hands-on science experiments. Each classroom has a well stocked classroom library of books for students to read that match their individual interests.
Our schools also sponsor a variety of events for students and their family members. We have a Bingo night, a Halloween Party, Spelling Bee, Reading and Math Nights, and a Spring Carnival. Our grade five students also have the option to participate in a field trip experience to Long Lake Conservation Center in Aitkin County. For many of our students this is the highlight of their elementary school experience.
Finally, our school has been selected as a PBIS Exemplary School by the Minnesota Department of Education for the work we do to build positive behavior supports and expectations for our students. Our efforts to “spread” kindness in our community involved messages of support on coffee cups and to our community. We are blessed with great community support and we are proud to be Bluejackets!
The staff at IIS/C-I STEAM is dedicated to student success. For all of our students to learn and grow academically, socially, and personally, our building needs to be a positive place to learn and grow.
To help foster this positive learning community, IIS/C-I STEAM has adopted a framework called Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Most students know PBIS as Bluejacket Pride. PBIS is a research-based framework for promoting positive behaviors in schools and for determining and implementing interventions to help reduce specific discipline issues.
Mrs. Paulson's role is to promote the academic and social/emotional growth of all of our students. She works in partnership with educators and parents to assist students with making positive life choices, cope with difficult life events, identify and manage big feelings and emotions, appreciate diversity, promote confidence and develop healthy relationships.
The Elementary Counseling Program is to empower all students in the areas of academic, social-emotional and preparing for their future, and assist to remove obstacles to learning in the classroom.
School Counselors meet the developmental needs of the whole student by providing:
Small group counseling
Preventative classroom guidance lessons
Faculty consultation, collaboration, and education
Coordination of services
Referrals for specialized assistance
An Elementary School Counselor Can Assist to Increase:
Focus and attention
Belonging & safety
