What a fun week of celebrating our students and teachers. The Dia De Los Muertos event was amazing. Thank you to all of the teachers involved in making this an amazing experience for all. Items to consider for this week:

Grades! Please make sure you submit your grades by this Wednesday by 2:00. Please check out the hyperdoc under Nuts and Bolts --> Grades Timeline.

Halloween. Students were invited to wear their costumes. They know they should be following the dress code. Please help us enforce the dress code especially as it relates to masks, weapons and appropriateness.

Supplies. Fear not! We will still have opportunities to order some supplies. I have worked on our budgets and we will have opportunities with our EduAbroad funds as well as PTSO grants (see hyperdoc). Please do not feel the need to excessively stock up from our current supply. We also have the option to discuss adding two different weeks of EduAbroad visitors from January to early March.

Playoffs! Our students rock. Here is the updated playoff schedule. Come join us...

Saturday (10/27) Softball vs IB Charter at 2:30. The winner goes on to the championship at 4:30. Olympian High School.

Electronic Walkthrough Form. We have a new electronic walkthrough form we are eager to try out. If you see us on our phones in the back of your class, we are working on the new form. :-)

Peer Link-Up. Don't forget to sign up for Peer Link on the hyperdoc! What a great opportunity to observe and support one another.

As always, Go Tritons! If you have something that you would like me to share in the Triton Times, please let me know.

Technology Opportunity


Please consider this great PD opportunity. CUE puts together an awesome experience.

Self-Control (Triton Trait of the Month!)

For the month of October, we will be focusing on Self-control. Don't worry, Kindness Mondays will continue all year long (If you have a kindness challenge, be sure to forward it to Mrs. Rose and the TNT crew).

With Halloween just around the corner, we know the impact of self-control (try making kids eat only one piece of candy!). As we know in working with young individuals, self-control can be one of the hardest traits for a student to master. Let's explore the impact of self-control on students' ability to influence their own future during this month. We know that students who can defer instant gratification will be better off in the long run in many different areas of their lives. Our definition of self-control will be the ability to exercise restraint in light of impulses, desires and emotions.

Consider sharing the following 8 minute YouTube video with your TSP to introduce the Triton Trait of having Self-control. The link the the video is also posted on the Triton Trait Curriculum link on our Systems Hyperdoc. Feel free to add to the list of resources. Here is a video of the marshmallow experiment as well.

In the weeks to come, be sure to nominate students for Triton of the Week who exemplify having self control
