Event + Response = Outcome

"The E+R=O framework continues to have a tremendous impact on the Budd School. We don't control Events. When an individual knows that they control their 20 square feet with their Responses, it is a powerful thing. Students and adults can determine the Outcomes they want depending on their "R's". This framework teaches our students skill ("Press Pause, Get Your Mind Right, Step Up, Adjust and Adapt, Make a Difference and Build Skill) to fit with this mindset. I have had several students say "I didn't press pause" or "I had a bad R" in response to poor choices made. Our school continues to learn the mindset! E+R=O is truly how life works."

-Kelly Seboe (C.E. Budd Principal)

Adopt A Classroom

Do you have an hour of free time on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Fridays? Like to play board games? Want to make a positive influence in our schools? We have just the thing for you…Adopt a classroom.

The purpose of Adopt A Classroom is to assist teachers in their classrooms by offering them extra support with helping children with math skills, how to read, play with them in centers or even teach them how to take turns and share through playing board games. The importance of this program is to show the teachers that we care about them and want to support them whenever we can so they don’t get burnt out. Through assisting our teachers we are also providing positive role models to the children in our community.

Volunteers are required to get a background check which is done through Loudonville UMC and paid for through Redbird Resilient. All volunteers will be asked to attend an orientation, this allows us to go over the expectations of our volunteers, how to sign in at the schools and will end with a tour of McMullen and Budd schools. We will start on Monday November 7, 2022.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact, our adopt a classroom coordinator, Pastor Tabitha Williams at or 419-994-3160/419-938-6238.

Worth a Try!

Two parenting tips!

Sometimes we set very high expectations for our kids and scold them when they don't reach those expectations. Write out your child's strengths and weaknesses. Then write down what things you can do to help your child challenge their weaknesses. Often our child's strengths and weakness develop based on the home we provide for them. Remember to have patience with them. Rome wasn't built in a day!

Compliments! Most people love compliments and it helps with feeling more confident. Every day make sure you give your child one compliment. Maybe make it a game at dinner where each family member has to give someone else a compliment. It important to build your child's confidence and also teach them how to compliment others.
