A Note from Mrs. Johnson
Greetings, Valley Mills families!
We have had a busy month learning how to be safe, respectful, responsible, and focused in our lessons. We are utilizing Second Steps to have daily reminders in our classrooms. We also have had a record number of positive referrals, where students are showing exceptional instances of being responsible Valley Mills Vikings.
We have had some really neat opportunities to welcome guests, including the Decatur Central Hawks Basketball coach, John Ashworth to talk about how we can prevent bullying in our school. Our very own Kiersti Binette and Edie Perkins introduced the students to Bully Beans, where students learn how to prevent bullying and how to be responsible bystanders. Overall, we are working on helping students understand how their words and actions can positively impact our school community.
Our first Dine and Donate was a success, thanks to El Rodeo. We are excited to host our next Dine and Donate on September 17 at Culvers from 5-8 pm. Please come out and support our school.
We are so excited to continue learning and growing together!
