The Sir Henry Parkes Memorial PS Weekly Staff Memo

Welcome Back!

I hope your holidays were enjoyable - whether you had a quiet and restful break, or an active one. I am so excited to be at TSHPMPS! I am very much looking forward to building positive relationships with all staff over the coming years...Yes I am here to stay!

Thank you to all those staff members who promptly completed the Survey Monkey survey for me. I really enjoyed reading your responses - they have helped me to identify each and every one of you.

My door is always open - please come and see me at any time. I intend to be visiting classrooms on a regular basis. This is by no means to 'check up' on anyone - it is purely for me to start to build relationships with our kids and also be there as a support to you - should you need me. Thank you to all of those teachers who have welcomed me into their rooms so far.

New Weekly Memo

I hope you are all able to make some time each week to read this new format of the weekly eNews. I will be regularly adding readings for you all to read at your leisure. At times there may also be information about upcoming staff meetings and professional learning.

Your feedback is always welcome.

Below I have attached an article with some great ideas for classroom behaviour management strategies. Hopefully it may be of some use.
