I. Triton Awards! Start recognizing those great students of yours. Give them the shell award and have them find me at lunch or in my office for a treat. I always call their parents and it makes for great community building with your classroom. We will also start recognizing students weekly for the Triton Traits (In this case, Kindness). This is the last week for Kindness. We are going to the Growth Mindset Month! Go to the Hyperdoc to fill out a form and recognize an awesome kid for being kind.

J. Salute to Teachers and Tara Taylor. We hope to see you all out on September 15th in support of Tara Taylor. Click this link to purchase tickets. Way to go Tara!

K. Remember to finish your Online training (see below -- Mandated Reporter is due by 8.31.18).

As always, Go Tritons! If you have something that you would like me to share in the Triton Times, please let me know.

Kindness Idea

Ms. Miller shared a great idea for promoting kindness. She took a few minutes out of her class to ask students to brainstorm on being kind. Way to go!

A Message from our Assistant Principals!

Dr. Shannon Chamberlin and Mendel Nafarrete

Please be aware that several students were found participating in a game called Passout where they hyperventilate for 30 seconds and then hold their breath in attempt to faint. It's a dangerous game that can cause serious damage to the students. We will be discussing this game with the students and parents.
