Behavior Interventions

We were excited to attend a collaborative workshop yesterday on Behavior Interventions that Work. The speaker, Aimee Dean was phenomenal! Follow her on Twitter @behaviorqueen and check out her website @

We learned how to better understand challenging students, as well as many effective interventions for helping them. We will make a copy of the resource page with websites and books and place them in your boxes. We look forward to sharing these research based ideas with you!

SMS's NJHS Coat Drive

We are so blessed to live in such a giving community! SMS's NJHS had a coat drive and brought over MANY coats for our students. If you think a student is in need, please let us know. Sometimes I'll see students with no coat, but they'll have one in their book bag, or may have left it at home, but if you sense a need, discreetly ask the student and refer them to us. Thank you!

Lunches of Love

Thank you for sending your students first thing in the morning for their Lunches of Love! :)
