What an amazing week at Pittman! I love getting to know all the students who are new to Pittman this year, especially our Kindergartners. This week we have worked on new lunch procedures. Each round of lunch has a goal of eating for 10 minutes quietly before having conversation time. This quiet time helps us focus on eating all our food and keeping our lunchroom calm and safe. Students did a great job for their first week.
During PBIS lessons next week, students will be learning about the 5 steps to self-regulation. They will be focusing on the first 3 steps (see below). Our purpose for teaching these steps are to help students recognize when they are triggered or going to "flip their lids" and to give them steps to self calm instead of reacting.
Step 1: I am - students recognize that they are having BIG feelings
Step 2: I calm - students pick a breath to use to calm down
Step 3: I feel - students pick a feeling from the feelings chart that shows how they are feeling.
Pittman teachers are working hard to help students self-regulate!
Have a great weekend!
Thank you for Being on time to Arrival and Dismissal
Even though school lunch and breakfast will be free to all students this year because of a federal grant, we still need ALL families to complete the free and reduced lunch form. Free and Reduced lunch status helps Pittman get federal funding through the Title l program. Currently Pittman utilizes our funding to have a reading and math specialist who work with students.
Please complete the online application at: https://www.sps.org/ then click on “Free and Reduced Meal Application” on the right.
