Restorative Circles

Restorative Practices build community and can help set things right when the integrity of the community is challenged by harmful behaviors.

When people come together for restorative interactions they sit in circles. Circle dialogue is a

fundamental element of restorative dialogue.

Classroom circles support the two main goals of restorative practices: building community and

responding to harms through dialogue that sets things right.


I believe that a restorative approach will be a key ingredient in our success. For that to happen, circles will have to be a norm. Not something we do once a week or less.


The current consequences are primarily centered around vaping/tobacco use and attendance. I think a circle for each of these topics would be helpful, especially this week.


Please find a time to make each of these conversations happen. The kids are fired up about these topics, so they will welcome an opportunity to have their voices be heard and we would love for them to understand the adult perspective as well.

Field Trip Liaison Needed

The following people need to be notified when there is a field trip: Debi Straws, Kim Saddler, and Kathy Wright.


Art takes care of scheduling and transportation, but can we have someone else be the liaison for everyone else so that the cafeteria and nurse are notified in a timely fashion?


Whomever is interested, let Art know so that we can get trips off without a hitch.


Thanks

LA Students in LTS

Don't forget about the pieces of LA that these students are missing out on. If things are recorded and uploaded to Canva, please make sure you ask Robin to ask them to watch them. We want their transition to us to be as smooth as possible when the time comes.
