Bearcat Brief

September 22, 2017

Notes from Niki

It certainly doesn't feel like fall weather, but it is the first day of fall. With that comes football, pumpkin spice latte, and hay rides. Unfortunately, that also means to a certain extent that the "new" has worn off of the school year and behaviors are showing that.

It is important to remember that active supervision; exciting, engaging lessons; modeling; and relationship building are our first lines of defense. Please keep up the good work in these areas.
