Thank you to everyone who came and helped out with Breakfast with Santa: Ketcham, Voyles, Perez, Bills, Lott, Wilhite, Miranda, Chazarreta, Flor, Rutherford, Novoa, Broxterman, Rogers, and Nuss!

Thank you to Jordan and Reiana for all of their hard work on the play! We can't wait to see it this week!

Thank you for the fantastic holiday doors! They are fun and help make our building feel like family!

Thank you to everyone for opening your doors to the APs who were here last week doing walkthroughs. It is great for others to see the good work we are doing every day! They had many compliments for you. The best one was, "it feels so safe and homey here. We can tell your teachers have really spent time building relationships and creating a safe environment for learning!" Mr. Nuss and I especially appreciated that they saw that after only a few minutes in your rooms! WAY TO GO!! :)


Our character trait of the six weeks is:


Do what you are supposed to do • Plan ahead • Persevere: keep on trying! • Always do your best • Use self-control • Be self-disciplined • Think before you act — consider the consequences • Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes • Set a good example for others

What is responsibility?

1. Being accountable for what you do, for your actions and behavior.

2. Doing the right thing at the right time, so others can trust and depend on you.

What are ways you can show responsibility?

1. Complete your homework and chores on time without being reminded.

2. Follow through on your commitments, even when you don't feel like it.

3. Accept responsibility for your mistakes and learn from them. Don't make excuses or blame others.

4. Take care of your things and those of other people. Return items you borrow.

5. Find out what needs to be done and do it.

6. Make wise choices, such as choosing to eat healthy foods and wearing a helmet.

7. Always do your very best. Others are counting on you!
