Inspire Excellence in Education [May 16, 2016]

Thank you for sending encouraging words to our 3rd-5th graders!

Finish Strong

Make every minute count for our students these last few days. We had a great start of the year, and it's even more important to give our students a strong finish. Here are some reminders for a successful last few weeks:

  • Routine & Schedule- pick up students at 7:45 and stick to your regular schedule as much as possible.
  • Student engagement- when students are engaged in meaningful activities, they are less likely to misbehave. Please avoid long periods of busy worksheet, videos, or non-structured activities. Active supervision is critical!
  • Keep calm and professional in all situations- remember the "water bottle" and "coke bottle" demonstration? We choose our words, actions, and moods. Let's all strive to be a calm water bottle, not an explosive, bubbling coke bottle.
