School Safety Team-

Hello everyone,

I am recruiting members to review our HCS Building Level Emergency Response Plan. We will have 4 meetings this school year to spend time reviewing the plan, deciding what is relevant, and looking at what we might add or omit.

Meetings will take place at 8:15 in the staff lounge on the following dates:

November 16

December 7

February 15

March 15

Please email me by November 5th if you are willing to be a part of the team.


Marking Period End Dates and Information

Please note that at last night's ELC meeting, we were given the green light to make edits to the indicators that are currently displayed on the report card. Those edits will need to be in to your grade level rep no later than Friday, November 5th, (although sooner is better.) This will effect the date the window will be open- see below

PBIS Character Trait of the Month- Gratitude

During the Month of November, we are focusing on Gratitude. To kick off this month's character trait, we are asking that you talk with your students about what gratitude means, and have them write one thing they are grateful for on a leaf. (Mrs. Nagy will be distributing leaves on Monday, so be sure to check your mailbox!) Please take next week to select a day for this activity, and have the leaves back in Mrs. Nagy's mailbox by next Friday, November 5th. Mrs. Olsen will be creating a tree for our leaves to be displayed on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria.

Here is a great short video that you might be interested in sharing with your students about gratitude:


Later in the month, we will be working on our cards for troops- more to come!

*Our next PBIS meeting is Dec 1 at 8:15 in Rebekah's room. Please feel free to attend!
