PBIS or SEL Tip of the Week!

Last week, we gave you some tips on Welcoming Rituals. This week, let's look for opportunities to express our Gratitude. There are positive benefits of expressing gratitude. What a great opportunity we have to allow our students express what they are grateful for.

Students may ONLY wear FRIDAY shirts on Friday.

Students should not be wearing band, choir, etc..shirts on any day except the day of their performance. Only the PTA shirt (It's Who We Are) is allowed on Friday. Otherwise, students MUST be in the standardized collared shirt. Since the PTA shirts have not been distributed at this time, no one should be out of dress code at this time. First period teachers, when the announcement to look at dress code comes on at 8:18, please look. Send anyone out of dress code to the office.

A Word About Tardy Stations

Tardies USED to be a huge problem. Teachers came up with the tardy station solution. And it worded phenomenally! This year, we have noticed that tardy stations are often left unmanned. If you have any questions about how it works, please see any teacher who was here last year. Please know that this is effective when we work together. It's Who We Are. Some pro tips for tardy stations: 1. Ask the child which class they are headed to instead of if they are tardy. This allows you to assess whether they are in the right spot and then you can walk them to their next class. 2. Now that classes are less spread out, they shouldn't be walking the halls. Grab them as they walk by and have them come on in your classroom instead of making the rounds with friends. 3. Teachers being in the hallway encouraging them not to be late helps a lot! Make sure that you are not distracted by your chatty neighbor. Thank you for your help!
