February's PBIS Focus

Our Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) theme for the month of February is “Get Engaged…in Learning.” To promote this theme, students with no thumbs down recorded in Class Dojo for disrupting class or failure to follow directions will be entered into a weekly drawing for ring pops. We will also be instituting a school-wide “Mindful Moment” during third block each day. This will be a 1-3 minute guided mindfulness session for students to clear their heads and refocus on learning. Additionally, students will participate in scheduled classroom movement breaks to help release pent up energy and reduce disruptive behaviors.

LMS Student Spreads Philanthropy

Addison Brown, a sixth grade student at LMS started doing philanthropic work when she was just four years old. Her first cause was raising money for the homeless. Now, her main focus is creating "Smile Bags". Addison fills bags with books, crayons, note pads, tissues, coloring books, and stuffed animals to help children through difficult experiences. The bags are donated to police departments who give them to children in order to provide comfort when they are struggling with an emergency situation. She has donated bags to seven police departments so far, including the Lowell Police Department and our local branch of the state police. Last week, Addison was featured on both WGN and NBC for her amazing philanthropic efforts. Next up, she wants to do a book drive across the Tri-Creek district in order to collect books for her bags. Stay tuned for upcoming information on how to support Addison's mission!
