We are really looking forward to our Fun Run on Thursday! I am amazed by the generosity of our Spring Mills Families. Thank you so much to all of you who have supported our school. We are able to provide so many extras for students as a result. We appreciate you!
Reminder - our Fun Run Times are listed below in the next section.
As you know, we spent a lot of time talking and showing students our expectations all around the school. This is a big part of our culture here - making sure our expectations for behavior all around the building are clear. Students can also now earn Sharky Stars for positive behavior, and each week a winner is drawn from all grade levels. Students will then get to choose a prize. We will also have Students of the Month, nominated by building staff. Our first Shark Superstars of the Month will be announced next week.
In addition, we have worked on our progressive discipline system. Please take a look at the chart below. This explains all that we are doing to help our students before you would hear from me. The goal is to provide students multiple opportunities to make better choices. Obviously, if safety is a concern as a result of behavior, it will come right to me. Please see the graphic below for details.
We hope you enjoy the weekend, and for our little Mavs out there - hope you enjoy the homecoming festivities!
Have a terrific weekend,
Sarah Bentley, Principal
