              Morning Meeting Focus This Week

              This week we revisit hallway expectations. Please reinforce what is expected of students while they are in the hallways.

              Here are the expectations established through the leadership team for hallway behaviors:

              1) Students should walk with 2 feet in the blue squares on the right side of the hallway. This should be happening even if students are walking without an escort to the library or restroom.

              2) Students should not talk or make noises in the hallway.

              3) Students should not touch the walls or hallway displays. If you wish to do "lips and hips" that is fine.

              Bullying Survey-Complete by November 20

              We are planning a bullying assembly for students here at Ebinport. Please complete this survey on bullying so we can tailor this assembly to meet the needs of our school.


              If there are situations that arise in your classroom and there is any doubt that administration needs to be informed, please air on the side of caution and inform us! It is hard to have difficult conversations with parents when we don't know specifics about situations!

              Calling All Elves! Thank you, Mrs. VanderMolen, Mrs. Rutledge and Sra. Perez for signing up to serve! We need 9 more volunteers this day!

              We need your help! On Saturday, December 12, 2015 we will have Breakfast with Santa here at Ebinport. We need teachers/faculty/staff to volunteer to serve this morning. If you are willing to join in on this opportunity to support our PTO and families in this way please click this link and sign up today! We need at least 12 volunteers to help with this!

              Immersion Movie Night Canceled

              The immersion movie night that has been advertised to parents was postponed by PTO for a date TBD. Please let immersion parents know.

              If you would like to be trained for the first time or need the refresher course for CPI (refresher required once each year), please click here to look at course offerings.

Please talk with me individually prior to signing up.
