This week, Kindergarten and 1st grade had their third lesson of the Second Step Program. We talked about Empathy (feeling and understanding how someone else feels). Next week we will continue to discuss how other classmates feel and discuss ways to show care and concern.
See link below for K-5 Elementary Second Step Teaching Topics and Schedule:
The great news is that the Second Step Program has a link that parents can utilize to reinforce the skills that their children have learned for the week. All you need to do is the following:
Kindergarten- Use this link www.SecondStep.org then enter the following Activation Key: SSPK FAMI LY70 Look for Lessons 1-2-3 under Home Link

My Stop App
The Brunswick City Schools Transportation Department uses the Versatrans My Stop APP to allow parents to see their child(ren) 's bus status in real time. You can install the app via Google Play or the Apple Store on your mobile device.
Parents can log in by clicking here using their primary phone number as the username and password. Parents who cannot log in using their phone number may call the Transportation Department for assistance at 330-273-0227.
Versatrans Login Instructions
If you have never logged into Versatrans, please use the student's primary phone number on Final Forms as the username and password. Once a parent/guardian has logged in, they may change their password. To change the password:
Click on the "OPTIONS" tab
Click on the "CHANGE USER PROFILE" tab
Complete the requested information and then click on the "UPDATE USER PROFILE" tab
After the initial login, parents/guardians click "STUDENT" and "VIEW MY STUDENTS."
Next, go to the tab on the top titled "Students" and then "View My Students" (students will show up). After the initial login, parents would click "Student" and "View My Students" when logging back in.
Car Rider Line
Parents dropping off or picking up their child should pull all the way up to the cone at the corner where the sidewalk ends. Students will not be dismissed to cars until all traffic has stopped. Please do not exit the car rider line once you have your child. The first car at the cone will be waved to exit and proceed to Berkshire Dr. by a staff member. This is important for student safety.
Students will be dismissed to cars in waves based on the order of the cars. Parents will receive a car rider tag with their child's name on it for our staff members to know which child gets in each car.
