Greene School Students at STEAM Council
Our district has a group of professionals who are working to continue the implementation of STEAM practices. This week they welcomed Greene School students who presented about Dash and Dot - robots at Greene that they program using a scratch like block coding system.
Students on the Orange Team created representations of math computations about their lives! Students were able to learn about each other and practice their math skills!
Students in the Purple Team got to Break Out of Mesopotamia in class! Break out rooms are getting popular and the Greene School has a version that allows students to test their knowledge in a content area while working as a team to solve clues.

PBIS at Home- Be Safe
Being safe at school means having a calm body at all times, staying in your designated area, watching out for others around you, walking instead of running and using materials and tools correctly. This is extremely important in hallways, the cafeteria, the playground and on the bus, as well as in classrooms. Part of being safe at school also involves another one of our sayings, “If you see something, say something!” We want our students to feel emotionally safe as well as physically safe.
How does this translate to home? Having a calm body around the house or out in the community is important so no one gets injured. If your child is home alone, does he know what to do to be safe? Does she check to see that doors are locked? Does he know rules about answering the phone and what to say if someone calls?
When she is out in the community, talk about safe behavior and don’t be afraid to set limits! Remember, children need boundaries! Don’t forget to talk about what to do if they happen to find themselves in an unsafe situation. It can be a scary conversation, but one that is needed! Don’t forget to reward those safe behaviors when you see them or when your child tells you about a situation where he made a great choice. Being aware of your surroundings, looking at for others, and making great choices are life skills that will keep your children safe! Next week, we’ll look at how to “Be a Problem Solver” at home!
