The Ferson Way & CARE Meetings
Previously, teachers were holding Morning Meetings as way to foster a sense of community in the classroom. This year, we have changed the name of these to CARE meetings. CARE stands for Creating A Respectful Environment. These class meetings are held sometime during the school day, have a monthly focus, connect with SEL standards and our SEL Second Step curriculum. This month, the focus is the Ferson Way. During CARE meetings, students brainstormed clear descriptions of what the Ferson Way looks like across school settings. Next month, CARE meetings will focus on Skills For Learning. This includes, being a good listener, asking for help, and self-talk. Additionally, CARE meetings are a time where classrooms can share with each other, as well as problem solve situations as they arise. The goal of these meetings is to continue to build our class communities that promote a sense of belonging.
D303 Family Resources
In D303, we value the opportunity to provide a community of care and support to our families, especially those faced with financial hardship.
If your family is currently experiencing a significant financial need, our community partnerships have several supports available for families, including school clothes/shoes, winter coats/accessories, school supplies, toiletries, holiday meals, and/or holiday gifts. If you would like to be considered for any of these supports, please complete the Family Resource Form by August 26, 2022.
