STIP Update

I am so grateful to have had such great STIP subs. this year. Both Ms. Aja and Ms. Anna have brought passion, commitment to their roles at Glenview. They have quickly become part of the Glenview community and taken on leadership and initiative in so many ways.

Ms. Anna Kaye has decided to take on her next teaching adventure and she will be greatly missed. Ms. Aja has decided to stay at Glenview for another year and we look forward to having her as part of our community in 2015-16.

Behavior Support

There continued to be a lot of "Spring Fever" this last week. All teachers have been trained in RJ and PBIS. Please schedule daily community building, RJ circles, review of behavior through PBIS, and time to process conflict after lunch for the next five weeks. It's just that time of year!

Safety First

Next Drill

Our next "surprise" drill will be an earthquake drill.

1) Drop under the desk and hold on.

2) Exit the building calmly and quietly like a fire drill and wait for directions.
