Be a Bucket Filler

Here's a little more adult version of the "How Full is Your Bucket?" tale. Students came up with 4 pages of bucket fillers, so I think it led to some positive conversations. Let's try to model being bucket fillers and use some of the language from the story with kids as we encourage positive behaviors and peer interactions.

Emergency Drills Debrief

Our evacuation time was good for the fire drill on Tuesday. Please make sure you are the last one out of your room and you close your door and turn off your lights. Thank you for those of you who had the first students hold doors open for those behind.

The kids were great for the tornado drill and got into position and were quiet; thank you for your supervision and getting them to where they needed to be. I'm glad we practiced this, because I was able to see that some room maps conflicted with what was in the emergency plan. I am in the process of redoing the maps. If there is time, the preferred action is to get everyone to the inside rooms in the old 4th grade portion of the building. The new maps will also indicate which room you will go to and how you will get there if we all head to rooms B1-B5. Next time we practice tornado drills, we will practice those routes.
