Conscious Discipline & CHAMPS
Our focus for the month of August is SAFETY. Make sure that you have a Safe Place ready for the first day of school.

The most important thing you can focus on during the first week of school is RELATIONSHIPS. Then procedures and expectations, then content.
All things related to behavior, including CHAMPS templates and our behavior management plan can be found in the "Behavior" folder on the Alta Vista School House in Google Drive.
We would like ALL staff to drop in a picture (label with your last name). We will be using them for a special project coming soon.
