Place of Comfort

This year we have done a great job of building our "places of comfort" through our PBIS initiative and especially the implementation of Morning Meetings. Thank you for your daily commitment to building your supportive cultures. As the year winds down, thank you for not forgetting this important routine. When we get close to to the end of school, students will be going through all kinds of emotions. They will be sad, excited, and less tolerant of one another. Morning meetings, not too much down time, and quality activities will continue to help as we teach and model for our students how to get along when emotions run high and change is inevitable. Thank you!!!
