Our Week

Sickness. That about sums it up! We have a variety of illnesses going around, so please keep your child home if they are not feeling well.

This is a time of year when we see students settle into their routines and become more comfortable with their peers. Students are starting to figure out friendships and boundaries, and with that comes an increase in adult vigilance to ensure kiddos are being kind and safe to each other. As a staff, we need to communicate with families when we notice patterns in behavior, so we can work together to support more positive and appropriate interactions.

Teachers have been asked to report student behavior to either Mr. Guernsey or the homeroom teacher if they were not around when the behavior occurred (ex., in a unified arts class), then to me. Teachers are the first to communicate with families and will ask me to support communication and problem-solving if concerns persist.

Our school needs to be safe for all students, and we are responsible for supporting the development of appropriate skills, so students can succeed. Working together with families will increase success and build a stronger relationships- that's our goal.

This week, we also had grades 3-6 head to Alburgh to harvest squash at a local farm. Healthy Roots grows squash which is distributed to local food shelves and the community. Students and teachers spent the morning working together for this great cause!
