A Note from Mrs. Rex
Also, this year, I will have my very first intern. Her name is Bailey Parks and she comes to us from Bowling Green State University. Bailey will be here on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursday afternoons the entire school year. I am looking forward to giving Bailey a great internship experience!
Have a wonderful September!

Many types of educators could use Class Dojo for their lessons, groups, or even to track individual student behaviors. Plus, the data could be compiled into a report for parents and administrators.
I also love that Class Dojo can be used on a smartphone, computer, or tablet for FREE!
Finally, Class Dojo has a YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/classdojo) which includes how-to videos to make it even easier to utilize.
Dear Hiawatha Timberwolves,
I have a problem.
Mrs. Rex is spending a lot of time with her new friend, Wolfina. Sometimes, I just want to hang out with Mrs. Rex without Wolfina, but I don’t know how to say that without being mean. I just want everything to go back to normal.
What should I do?
2. Turn in completed letters to Mrs. Rex.
3. At the end of the contest, Mrs. Rex will pick letters randomly. Those students will receive a prize.
Anonymous Bullying Reporting
What is Bullying?
An issue that has occurred over and over again, between the same individuals (power imbalance), on purpose, and hurt physically and/or emotionally.
How the "Bully Box" Works
What Happens Next?
If I notice that a particular student, classroom, or grade level is misusing the reporting system, I will ask to address this with the group and review our procedures.
If I read a form, meet with a student, and suspect bullying, I immediately bring this to our principal's attention. At this point, we follow Washington Local's bullying investigation procedures.
In any of the above scenarios, the classroom teacher(s) and any other affected staff members will be notified.
