Black Cat Bulletin

Keeping it R.E.A.L. at West Terrace

A new way to communicate!

We hope you enjoy our new newsletter. We hope it gives us the chance to share information more often, with lots more fun photos, videos, and classroom projects shared. You can "follow" this mailing to receive notifications each time we send new bulletins. You may follow from other email addresses and share with those you feel would benefit from the information. This flyer is JUST A TEASER for our May newsletter. You'll find that coming soon!

PBIS Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports

As mentioned before in newsletters, we are participating in the PBIS process. We have a new approach that will help us blend our Leader in Me focus with PBIS. Our goal is to have children live responsibly, respectfully, with a focus on effort and attitude. We will be sharing these expectations but wanted you to be aware of the shift to "Keeping it R.E.A.L!"


+ A=Attitude


We believe that by combining, respect, effort, and attitude you achieve both learning and then leadership. Join us in encouraging students to discover their potential by living respectfully, with their best efforts, and a great attitude!
