Parent Education Workshop: The Search Institute's 40 Developmental Assets and PBIS
Tuesday, Feb. 19th, 6-7pm

(The Search Institute has identified 40 positive supports and strengths that young people need to succeed. Half of the assets focus on the relationships and opportunities they need in their families, schools, and communities (external assets). The remaining assets focus on the social-emotional strengths, values, and commitments that are nurtured within young people (internal assets).
Refreshments will be served.
All are invited to attend the General PTA Meeting that follows from 7pm-8pm.
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
PTA's New Watch D.O.G.S. Program Launch
Mrs. Wrobel described how much goes into helping all students become successful. She uses multiple strategies for student engagement, differentiates instruction, and puts a lot of effort into making the curriculum interesting and relevant to her young learners. However, the most important thing for her is connecting with her students so that they feel loved. Her main goal is for every child to know that they are special and loved in her classroom. Mrs. Wrobel often finds past students lingering in her classroom after school to tell her about their day and get a hug.
Mrs. Wrobel states: "I believe my role as a teacher is important because I understand that the work world our students will enter is constantly evolving. As a teacher, I embrace change even when it feels difficult. Taking risks and trying new things is one of my favorite things about teaching. Even though I have been teaching for a long time, I am always interested in new strategies, ways of teaching and learning technology."
Thank you, Mrs. Wrobel, for all you do for Del Cerro students, families, and staff! We appreciate you!
