WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER...

  • Jean and Sue organize subs for all PD events. They have several dates for the year and are working hard to get everyone covered. They will notify you via email when subs are arranged. Please wait for the email so they aren't interrupted with questions about subs.
  • Email is a major source of communication for things we all need to know. The expectation is to check email at least 2 times a day (morning and afternoon) and to READ thoroughly so you know what is happening. Ask 3 before me if you don't understand something and then if everyone is still confused, communicate to the creator of the email for clarification.
  • PBIS lessons should be taught in entirety and with fidelity to what is written on the paper. This will help ensure consistency across the building. Let's support each other with positive feedback to our colleagues and the kids by giving a shout out when we see a group moving towards becoming an EXPERT! Watch Jessica review a PBIS lesson below. Thanks Jessica for being the first to "go live."
  • The 15 minute extra recess is for meeting with kiddos who you need time to go deeper with relationship building. This can be done many ways: talking, playing a game, reviewing PBIS, role playing, etc...Whatever way you choose it's how you say things vs. what you say that makes the difference : )
  • If you are struggling with a student, see me, Rachel, Betsy, Randi or Kelli for help. Some of you have already come to us with concerns- awesome! We are here to help support you. If we don't know, we can't help!
