Vol 2.4: Conferences Week Edition
Mr. Sellenheim's Greeting
The Dragon Essentials
With that, our Grewenow staff developed what is called "The Dragon Essentials" or expectations for how to treat others and find success at school. The 22 guidelines which are not just rules, but a "way to be" were groups into four categories: Listening, Following Along, "Try it Out," and "The Golden Rule."
The link to view Grewenow Elementary's "Dragon Essentials" document is below this message.
We are excited to share this message with you, and to work with our families in getting to the heart of developing students who truly show the Dragon Way wherever they go!
