Principally Speaking

October is Bullying Prevention Month. At SMS we take bullying very serious at all times and we will be focusing on bullying prevention in the advisory program this month. School bullying is a type of bullying, that occurs in any educational setting. For an act to be considered bullying it must meet certain criteria. This includes hostile intent, imbalance of power, repetition, distress, and provocation.The form below has some talking points for talking to your child about bullying. As always, if you have a concern about bullying to report to the counselor, please use this link to report for investigation. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdFfRefVUV3E-pKff7uOuoMskE4MxQWDK5j6sOWVrP52p-KPw/viewform

Nominate Your Teacher Today

KNWA’s Golden Apple Award Contest, sponsored by Post Consumer Brands, is back for its 3rd year. This contest highlights the efforts of our NWA teachers/ coaches/ classroom instructors that go above and beyond the normal duties of teaching within a classroom and how they “Make Better Happen” for their students. If you know someone like this, we would love to hear about them.

Once a month, one teacher/coach from NWA school districts (traditional and non-traditional settings) will be chosen for an amazing prize package (Golden Apple Award, $150 Walmart Gift Card, and $50 restaurant gift card). The winner will also have a surprise classroom visit from our very own Tavares Jones, a Post Consumer Brand rep, and a camera crew. On the last Wednesday of the month the story will air. (Visits will be organized and confirmed through winning schools principal’s office).

Below you will find the link to our Golden Apple online submission page. Please share this with all of your teachers in your district. This contest will run through the entire school year and our first teacher will be chosen in September. Thank you for your assistance with this wonderful opportunity.
