October STUDENTS OF THE MONTH
Message from our Principal
Hello Harris Parents and Caretakers
This is our first edition of the Harris Elementary School Newsletter that will be posted on S’MORE. Here it is the end of October and we have two months of school that have been completed. October has been designated as Kindness month. Some students in all classrooms, at all grade levels will be recognized by their teachers, as best exemplifying the characteristic of Kindness, by being named the Student of the Month in October.
Harris Elementary School teachers and staff will be trained in the Restorative Practice at the end of the month of October and the first two days of November. Restorative Practice is a way for schools to become more connected, and to help in developing healthy relationships. Ideally, this will help us reduce the number of behavior issues and in turn reduce the number of suspensions. Woonsocket Education Department is on the “cutting edge” of this program. We will be the only district in the State of Rhode Island to be trained in Restorative Practice and we are very excited about being a part of this program. This is because of a grant that was written by our Assistant Superintendent Dr. Jenny Remka.
When students improve their attendance rates, their chances of future success in the middle school, high school graduation, a post secondary school success greatly increases. On average, missing two days a month or 18 days or more a year missed is considered being chronically absent from school. Make every attempt to get your student to school everyday. This will have a tremendous impact on their future success.
