Students Caught "Bee"ing Awesome at MBD

From now until Thanksgiving Break, when a student is caught "Bee"ing awesome, a postcard will be sent to the student's house. Students will be caught "Bee"ing awesome by Ms. Husser for one of the reasons:

- "Bee"ing an Active Listener

- "Bee"ing Kind to Others

- "Bee"ing a Role Model

- "Bee"ing Excited About Learning

"Bee" Mindful in Remote Learning with Ms. Faliveno


  • Fall is full of wonderful scents. Scent is a great way to help kids become more aware of the here-and-now... to be MINDFUL.
  • An easy way to engage the sense of smell is to give your child something fragrant to smell... a flower, a slice of apple, etc.
  • Invite your child to close their eyes and inhale the aroma. Take a few minutes to smell the fragrance. Then ask " What do you smell?" " What does that make you feel... remind you of?"
  • Teaching children to stop and smell can literally remind them to "stop and smell the roses" and sometimes we all need to be reminded of that!
