Boone School Family Newsletter
October 2015 Online Edition
Dear Families and Friends of Boone School,
I am so happy to announce that Boone will be receiving the CPS Supportive Schools Certification at the “Exemplary” level (the highest level) on our school report card this year! Boone is the only school in CPS Network 2 to receive this designation this year. We were selected for our implementation of high-quality social-emotional learning curriculum and positive behavior supports.
This year all students will be receiving a free t-shirt with the words, “Work Hard and Be Kind,” on the front. This is a message that we will be focusing on throughout the year across all grades PK-8. The t-shirts are part of a grant that Boone received to support our social-emotional learning programs. We encourage students to wear the t-shirts often, and live the message every day. Thank you for your support in helping to keep our students happy and healthy at Boone!
