Welcome Back BSE Crew!
Today you will see a that the United Way HSE Campaign has kicked off. This year we will try something new for the campaign:
1. Beginning next week, we will be professional dress Mon-Thurs for the entire year.
2. Beginning next Friday, JEANS FOR ANY EMPLOYEE EVERY FRIDAY who make the minimum electronic donation ($10) or higher to United Way Campaign this year (until the next United Way Kick-Off).
Our school goal is always 80% higher on participation and the new format allows for this to improve and possibly help us meet our goal.
Thanks for in advance for your participation with United Way!

Injuries at Recess & Radioing Mrs. Sweet

- Head injuries
- Injuries that require more information such as a possible broken bone.

Mrs. Sweet may radio or call a teacher's extension if more information is needed. If in doubt or the incident requires immediate communication, radio!
Collaboration with Mrs. Patrick
Mrs. Patrick believes in total transparency. She is happy to share her Outlook calendar with anyone; however she recognizes that not everyone accesses their email or calendar through Office 365. This can make viewing her calendar, as well as creating calendar events, difficult.
Calendly is a great solution! If you're trying to find an open 30 minute or hour block on her schedule, try this link

Leveled Literacy Intervention Refresher
Tuesday, Nov. 1st, 8-8:45am
Behaviors & Office Support
Admin and the PBIS team is working on a process to better identify majors and minors and when to use the office for support.
Questions to ponder:
- Classroom: What deescalation strategies do you use at the classroom level?
- Partner: Have you and your teammates identified buddy rooms for quick time outs in order to distract undesired behaviors?
- Grade Level: How can we strengthen our PBIS practice of using our teammates for behavior suggestions just as we do for academic strategies?
- Office: What documentation are you using in order to show the steps taken prior to using office support such as reflection, deescalation, parent contact, etc.
September referrals multiplied by 9 when compared to August, whoa!
"When students do not know how to read, we teach them. When students do not know how to behave, we...teach them."
