Lunch Bunch News
Teachers may refer students to Lunch Bunches when they feel students would benefit from a small group setting focused on helping students get to know others, improve self-esteem, develop social skills, or develop self-empowerment skills.
Lunch Bunches will begin in October and students will be given passes when they are scheduled for a lunch bunch.
National Blue Shirt Day October 6, 2014
The 6th Grade BLAST News
A list of BLAST members is on the Y drive under Lang/Blast.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, student members are to report to Mrs. Lang at 2:45 pm.
During October, BLAST members will work on Character Counts Week projects and continue developing the Peer Advocacy Program.
I am very proud of each BLAST student for their dedication to Standing Up for their Peers and Promoting a Positive Environment at school, on the bus, and in the community. Please acknowledge these young people when you see them model positive behaviors for others, stand up for those being put down, and caring about their school community in this way. Way to go, BLAST!
Bullying Awareness Classroom Counseling Lessons will be held between October 1 and October 17.
