Friday Focus

Moreau Heights Elementary

March 18

PBS Focus of the Week -

Our PBS focus for the week is I can do the right thing, even if others are not.

A goal for all is to be able to do the right thing, even when others aren't. How hard is that for all of us?

* We know being positive is best and we get sucked into a negative conversation.

* We know we shouldn't eat that extra cookie, but everyone else is enjoying them so . . .

This does look different for our students and we want to help them to develop this skill. We want students to be able to own their behavior, both the good choices and the poor ones.

**Be sure you are using Charger Cash and positive feedback consistently! When we look for the good choices being made by students and recognize it, we support others with our tone and positive expectations!

Nuts and Bolts

*Thank you in advance to our grade level teachers for your time this coming Monday, March 21st, with configuring your ipad. This is necessary to work with MAP testing and will take about 15 minutes.

*The schedule for the weeks of MAP testing will be provided prior to spring break. We will work to finalize this schedule on Monday at our Leadership Team meeting.

*Have you cleaned your projector filter recently? If not, take time to remove the filter and clean it out to help with the life of your projector bulb.

*Remember, if you are wanting to give a student a chance to practice taking the SRI test to check progress you will need to do this BEFORE spring break. A student can only test every 30 days and we don't want to create a problem with our year end testing.


We want all of our students to feel part of positive school community. Working together to build a culture that stands up to bullying and unkind behaviors is what we want for everyone. Check out this video made by a 6th grade group.

How might you share this with students as a discussion starter? What questions could you pose to get students to take this life lesson to Quad D to make it stick?
