PBIS May Focus

During the month of May, we will be focusing on collaboration. Collaboration means working together for a common purpose to achieve a goal. Collaboration allows children to think deeply and more creatively about a subject. It also encouraged students to see things from different perspectives, developing empathy. We look forward to setting goals and working together to achieve them.


This is a free event, but you must sign-up in advance if you plan to attend. There will be a check-in list at the door. Chips & drinks will be provided. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
