Each advisory should vote for the top two changes from the grade level lists linked below and email them to Mr. B by Friday, December 18th.
Reps should still brainstorm community building circle talk discussions and responsive circle discussions:
1. (CB)Students who get to know each other better(likes,dislikes, home life, struggles, accomplishments, values) are less likely to bully, demean or treat others in a disrespectful manner.
2. (RC) Students learn that confronting (behaviors/events/actions) will help solve problems in the school, community and world through quality discussions without placing blame on a specific individual. Powerful changes in behavior and actions.
Reps this past Friday were given two responsibilities:
- Brainstorm topics for community building circle talks
- Brainstorm topics for restorative circle talks.
Reps in smaller classes can lead the whole group in the talks but larger Advisories should split in two with the teacher conducting one talk and the rep conducting the other talks during this trimester.
NWEA MAP Testing begins January 11th
