- Co-Teaching effort from our Social Worker and Speech Path with Ms. Troc's students. Asking each other about their weekends and a neat Pine cone project.
Circle talk in advisory about what is your worst nightmare? Students who learn more about each other are less likely to bully each other or be disrespectful towards each other. Thank you Dr. Anderson!

Friday, Dec. 11th, 5-8pm
16100 West 127th Street
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
I will share a google doc for each grade level to help select the focus for change at OQMS this Trimester.
Reps this past Friday were given two responsibilities:
- Brainstorm topics for community building circle talks
- Brainstorm topics for restorative circle talks.
Reps in smaller classes can lead the whole group in the talks but larger Advisories should split in two with the teacher conducting one talk and the rep conducting the other talks during this trimester.
