Safe School Ambassador Program Training- Feb. 8th and Feb. 9th- I need 4 more teachers for the training- If you are interested please let me know.

What is it?

Ambassadors are trained how to notice and take action if they see trouble starting between people; they notice if people are being left out, or if somebody is emotionally upset. They will not be responsible for solving problems of others, but will simply offer support, care, and information. They will be great observers of what's going on, and will try to get help to people before situations escalate.

This year we will be training new 3rd graders on both days and will provide a small group of 4th graders a refresher day on the 2nd day.

Valentine Grams- sold before school. Student Council will be helping. We will be selling Smencils for $2 each.
