August 27th - 31st

Week 4 of school

It is already the fourth week of school.......continue to build relationships with your own students and others. How are you communicating with parents? Make sure to keep them informed of academic progress (PowerSchool and/or Seesaw) and social/emotional progress. Some grades should be available at this point.

Have you reached out about something positive? It takes a village to raise a child, we are part of the village, but we must have parents working with us, make that positive connection! This will help parents to feel comfortable to reach out to you as well.

Monday Morning PD: Mindfulness - everyone's social and emotional well-being/PBIS

Our Monday morning collaboration has been chosen based off of the needs in our building. I heard from many of you this week, concerned and stressed with student behaviors and the overwhelming levels of disrespect. We are in this together, we will work through understanding our students, use of strategies, and keeping our own stress levels down in the process.
