The Principal's POV on SEL Activities

Don't forget that our #BulldogBuddy routines (PBS) & and our #EverydaySEL strategies will go hand-in-hand this year! Just like our Bulldog Biscuits, daily winners, and universal celebrations are all part of our Tier 1 supports, so too will be the SEL strategies listed below. All 8 should be modeled for our students over the course of September. This way no matter who our students are interacting with, we will all be able to assist them with these strategies. Should you wish to explore additional strategies based on your class's needs/interest...GO FOR IT, but these 8 will be our schoolwide starting point. As you explore SEL with your students, don't forget to share via email or social media!

News & Notes

Morning Mindfulness: Starting Monday, I will be hosting a Morning Mindfulness session in the Media Center each morning! We will start at 7:45 AM & everyone is invited to attend! After all, we can't support student mindfulness if we aren't developing ours!


POP Carts, Chill Zones & SEL Stories: All SEL routines must be established and modeled by Monday, September 17. I would highly recommend that you make your POP Chart & Chill Zone part of your classroom Bulldog Buddy roleplays.


DIBELS & Gr3 Comp Data: All data will be due by Thursday, September 20.


Emergency Sub Plans: Emergency Sub Plans will be due by Friday, September 28.


Meeting Minutes: In an effort to cut down on emails, all our meeting minutes will be kept on a Google DOC, and he link (see below) will be included in the Buzz each week! This way we will have easy access to monthly updates & can easily scroll back to previous minutes if you happen to miss!
