Welcome to Mrs. Parks-Wiggins'
3rd grade!
      We're off to a great start in third grade! Mineral Springs adopted PBIS last year (Positive Behavior Intervention Support), and our students have quickly become familiar with the new procedures and rewards that come with this program. Please ask your child all about it, and visit my Classroom Documents page for more information. 
Class Expectations
We show POWER in the classroom!

Polite: speak kindly, listen to others' ideas

On-task: Come prepared, stay focused

Wise: Raise hand to speak

Encouraging: Help others, always do your best, keep a positive attitude

Responsible: Keep hands and feet to self, work cooperatively, follow directions the first time

                Our school uses a color coded behavior system. In addition to a PBIS form being filled out each time a child breaks a rule, their color changes according to the following:               
                      1st offense:  Warning (yellow)
                      2nd offense: Silent Lunch/ Laps at Recess (orange)
                      3rd offense: Parent Contact/ Chill-Out Station (purple)
                      4th offense: Office Referral (red)
About Mrs. Wiggins
       I grew up in Winston-Salem, and moved back here to teach in 2008 when I married my husband. This is my sixth year teaching at Mineral Springs Elementary. Before that, I taught for two years in Charlotte after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.     
         When I'm not at school, I spend time reading, playing with my dog, Deacon, and watching my new baby grow!
