1st Week Complete!

I hope everyone has had a great weekend after a great first week of school. I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication that all put into the start of the school year. The challenge is to continue the positive momentum and stick to the focus we started with. I truly appreciate everything that all of you are doing!

Staff Focus and Action Items

Safety & Security - Officer Brandon Pounds will be the WPD officer assigned to Sunny Heights Elementary. He will be stationed at Stonybrook Middle School (next door), but will be a presence at Sunny Heights as well.

Building Hours - The building access hours for Sunny Heights are listed below. If you are in the building outside of the set time range, the alarms will go off and our school will be charged a fee for a false run. PLEASE adhere to these times (for many reasons)!

Weekdays: 5:00AM - 11:45PM

Weekends: 9:00AM - 5:30PM

Tier I Classroom PBIS - Continue to review the PBIS Tier I information shared last week (I know it was a lot). Reach out to the committee for questions or clarification. It is very important that we commit to the process and provide consistency for EVERYONE. We will see the results that we are striving for if everyone is committed to being part of the TEAM!

One-on-Ones - I am sending calendar invites to everyone for a one-on-one meeting with me to discuss your focus and goals for the year.
