Cafeteria Floor Remodel

While we were gone over break, our cafeteria floor began to get a new look! The tiles are gone! Over spring break the project will get finished up and the end result will be a shiny, polished concrete!

Stuck Inside

We were stuck inside most of the week for recess. The weather was just too cold to play outdoors! Luckily, we love the extra time spent with our classmates!

Building Our Classroom Cultures

The first days after break are the perfect time to reconnect with one another and talk again about how we want our classrooms to be. Our kindergarten friends made promises to one another and similar conversations were held around the building. We missed one another over break and are so glad to be gearing up for the rest of the year!

PBIS Assemblies

Each month all K-5 students attend a PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) assembly with their grade level. We would like to start sharing pieces of that information with you to support their learning at home as well as encourage these skills. This month they will learn about color zones for feeling identification and how to use a break space to get back on track so they can do their best. Here are a couple short videos the students will see:
