WILDCATS OF THE WEEK: MRS. ALLEN'S 3RD GRADE CLASS!!!!
Wyatt Earp speaking of his friend, John Henry "Doc" Holliday
2. Our SIT will meet next Tuesday starting at 11:30 AM to work on our plan. We will have subs in some classes to cover for our teachers.
3. Make sure all classrooms/pullout areas have the PBIS matrix and classroom rules posted. this is helpful when the office receives discipline referrals or for you when speaking to parents about a concern. Help the student to associate their misbehavior with the broken rule. Remember the matrix is an umbrella of expectations for the entire school. Your classroom rules should include 3-5 expectations that address safety, the most frequent/problematic behaviors in your class, what upsets us as educators, and other rules that create order and positive outcomes in your class. for example, if movement in the classroom bothers you, them you need a rule about that. If noises bother you then you need a rule for that. This was an activity you completed in CHAMPS training.
4. Christmas assistance information (Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Christmas Cheer, etc.) is available on the school counselor's website under the events tab. this information will also be sent home with students.
5. Internet Safety Night will be held at WAYE on November 7th in the Music Room. Staff members are welcome to attend. This information will be helpful to anyone with children that use electronic devices, especially those with older children who have their own phone or device.
6. Please make sure to turn off lights when you leave a room and turn off everything when you leave for the day. This helps save our system money we can use on things to help educate kids and help our employees.
7. The BCPS Spelling bee will be at Patton High School on Monday, October 24, 2016 at 7:00 PM.
