PBIS Note - September focus: Be Respectful

With the number of counselors meeting with kiddos during our lunch periods, I would like to avoid having students use their blue tickets to purchase "lunch in the conference room" on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We simply do not have the space. The others days should work fine, just send Brenda an email in advance, so we can avoid other conflicts.
