Using a Google Jamboard, students worked in small groups at our monthly

“Community Meeting” to contribute how our school wide agreement, “Show respect; be safe with your bodies, actions and words” applies to both recess and the bus.

Students also saw a video of an afternoon bus run. We do have video of every bus ride and

we wanted students to understand our vigilance when it comes to student safety on buses.

Chromebook Requirements

Please remind your student to bring a fully charged Chromebook to school every day. We have a very limited supply of Chromebooks to loan students so if they forget, there is a good chance you will be called to deliver your student's Chromebook to school.
