Snapshots of Kindergarten Learning

"You are not like me and I am not like you...but I think being different is really cool."

Thank you to all for making our Open House such a success!

We had a tremendous turn-out for Open House on Sept. 23. Families came out in support of their children, attended our book fair, and toured through classrooms and celebrated their children's learning. We were pleased to have community organizations and groups present including Valuing Our Children, the North Quabbin Community Coalition, the YMCA, Girls Scouts, Boy scouts, and a PTO display board. We even have a terrarium with live walking stick (insects) for children to explore.

Congratulations to the following student families for completing and returning their Home/School Compact surveys and winning a door prize:

Zac C., Reilly B., Senga L., Druelle Y., Joseph G., Felicity F., Brooklyn B., Landon M.

If you did not receive a home/school compact please review the attached link with your child, print, sign and return to the school. Thank you!

A Few Words About School Discipline

Discipline, at its core, is about teaching children responsible behavior. Most violations of school rules are best handled at the teacher level with those who are most directly involved. Teachers routinely address minor infractions related to horseplay, minor physical contact, disrespect, class disturbances, or defiant behaviors. Consequences assigned may be a change in seat, a note home, an apology letter/picture, and/or a loss of privilege. Teachers also use a variety of incentive and reinforcement systems to recognize when students are meeting classroom rules and expectations.

Pictured is a visual chart used in Mrs. Morin's first grade class to assign a loss of privilege following the use of verbal redirections.
