Compass & SEL Learning


Please find below what your student discussed in Compass the week of May 16th and some questions to discuss with your student.


6th Grade

  • In this week’s lesson, your child used their conflict-solving expertise to help solve a realistic peer conflict.

    • Ask to see your child’s assignment. If they don’t have it, ask them to explain it to you. Think of a realistic conflict from real life, TV, a movie, or book and have your child explain the steps they would take to resolve it.


7th Grade

  • In this week’s lesson, your child learned how to take responsibility for their actions in a conflict and make things right.

    • Discuss with your child a time in your life when you had to take responsibility for your role in a conflict. What did you do to make things right and repair the harm?

8th Grade

  • In this week’s lesson, your child identified signs of an unhealthy relationship.

    • Ask your child who they would go to for advice and support if they found themselves in a relationship that was unhealthy. Share why one of your close friends or family members is someone you turn to for advice and support.


Pre-Order Your PE Gear for 2022-23 School Year -No extra gear will be ordered

We will not be doing a mass order of HPE gear for next year, if you would like you child to have HPE; you must pre-order .



CHAIN OF MUSIC FUNDRAISER & RAYTHEON INVENTION CONVENTION

A new fundraiser is also being launched for the non-profit organization, "The Stage". They are a group of middle and high schoolers dedicated to helping the community through music. Right now, they are raising money for underprivileged teens in India overcoming mental health challenges. As of Monday. May 23rd - June 6th , you can purchase a cutout of a music note for $1 with no change at lunch, and write your name on it. This will be made into a chain, and the chain will eventually grow and be used as decoration for a bigger event.

Thank you!
