From our principal

This month, our school-wide theme is our school as a welcoming place where every student feels like he or she belongs. In our morning announcements and school assembly, we’ll be reminding students to welcome others and act and speak in safe, respectful, and responsible ways. In addition we’ll be reminding students of our school rules. (See Common Area Expectations in our Family Handbook)

We’ll also begin teaching the Second Step program, a social emotional curriculum which includes lessons to support these behaviors. Support your child at home in welcoming others and acting and speaking in safe, respectful, and responsible ways.

Please tell your child’s teacher if you have questions about specific ways you can help your child with these behaviors at home.
