Believe it or not- this is the last section of the SEL Activities Handbook for this year. The last section is on Responsible Decision Making. You can access the document here.
It’s also a good time to catch up if you’re behind or take some time to work on SEL in circles. I’m available to help with circles in your Advisory group. Just shoot me an email.
Try to incorporate the 3 signature practices in all your lessons. These are:
1. Warm welcome
2. Engaging practices
3. Optimistic close
These are the same practices we use at all our staff meetings.
Don’t forget to set an intention for the day or week. This time of year it is important to be intentional about self-care. Get some extra sleep and spend some time doing something that you enjoy. Reach out to colleagues for support.
Tplus staff, Fun and Function is a company that provides products for students with disabilities. They will be a part of our resource fair in some capacity - donations, info, etc... I thought I would give you their website to check it out as well. Their website has a lot of cool products for calming, stimulating, focusing, etc. I thought I would share with you in case there was something that you think our students would benefit from here at school. There are a lot of little kids modeling the products but there are quite a few things our students may like. https://funandfunction.com/
Please let students know we will be reassessing this as we move through the next few weeks and determine the Talent show schedule after break
Hello Tplus! It is time for our highly anticipated annual student Talent Show! There is a student sign-up in the cafeteria by the microwave table beginning Friday, March 13th. Students and groups are limited to one act. Unfortunately, time constraints force us to limit the number of acts to 24. We are offering a possible opportunity for a post-talent show viewing party and artist showcase the following week in the music room for those who were unable to sign-up in time. All students must abide by school and district policies for clean/safe for school lyrics and positive themes. If you or students have any questions, come see Christina.
Friday, April 17th
1:30-3:30pm in the cafeteria
FINAL DATE TO MAKE CHANGES: Friday, April 10th
Rehearsal dates: LOCATION T307 (music room)

Housekeeping Memo- Please be reminded that the white dishes in the cabinets in the 3rd floor Staff Lounge do not belong to TPlus. There are plates and bowls missing. Some have been located in the TPlus Small Kitchen. Be a good neighbor; if you use it, return it.
Please return any icepacks you may have in your classrooms to the nurses office. They need to take inventory of what we have before placing a new order.
