Principal's Message

We are now in the full swing of things here at CFT! This week we had our first fire drill! Fire drills and other emergency drills can be scary, especially for our younger students, but they are an important part of ensuring that every student under our care is safe and ready in the event of an actual emergency. We practice fire drills each month with a goal of evacuating the building in under 4 minutes. On our first try, we were very nearly there, with a time of 4 minutes and 9 seconds!


We also had our first assembly! It was a thrill to see the whole school together in one space, and we had a wonderful time. During the assembly, 5th graders led us in a school chant, we previewed the Golden Awards for positive behaviors (see below), sang the school song and cheered on some of our teachers in a Minute-To-Win-It style challenge. We will hold Golden Award Celebration Assemblies each month throughout the year.


Golden Awards:

Golden Bus - Achievement in Bus Safety and Behavior

Golden Tray - Achievement in Lunch Safety and Behavior

Golden Shoe - Achievement in Hallway Safety and Behavior

Golden Racket - Achievement in Specials Safety and Behavior

Golden Cone - Achievement in Recess Safety and Behavior

Kindness Award - Achievement in Kindness and Problem-Solving

Mensaje de la Directora

¡Ahora estamos en pleno apogeo aquí en CFT! ¡Esta semana tuvimos nuestro primer simulacro de incendio! Los simulacros de incendio y otros simulacros de emergencia pueden dar miedo, especialmente para nuestros estudiantes más jóvenes, pero son una parte importante para garantizar que todos los estudiantes bajo nuestro cuidado estén seguros y listos en caso de una emergencia real. Practicamos simulacros de incendio cada mes con el objetivo de evacuar el edificio en menos de 4 minutos. En nuestro primer intento, estuvimos muy cerca de llegar, ¡con un tiempo de 4 minutos y 9 segundos!

¡También tuvimos nuestra primera asamblea! Fue emocionante ver a toda la escuela reunida en un solo espacio, y lo pasamos de maravilla. Durante la asamblea, los alumnos de quinto grado nos dirigieron en un canto escolar, hicimos una vista previa de los Premios de oro por comportamiento positivo (ver más abajo), cantamos la canción de la escuela y animamos a algunos de nuestros maestros en un desafío estilo Minute-To-Win-It. Tendremos Asambleas para los premios de oro cada mes durante todo el año.

Premios de oro:
Golden Bus - Logros en seguridad y comportamiento en el autobús
Bandeja de Oro - Logros en Seguridad y Comportamiento en el almuerzo
Zapato de Oro: Logros en seguridad y comportamiento en los pasillos
Raqueta de Oro - Logros en Seguridad y Comportamiento en las clases especiales
Cono de Oro - Logros en seguridad y comportamiento durante el recreo
Premio a la Bondad: Logros en bondad y resolución de problemas
