Habits of Mind: “Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to Learn”

100th Day Celebration - February 11th
With the two snow days this week, the hundredth day will now fall on Tuesday, February 11th. We all look forward to seeing the wide-range of 100 item collections that the younger students bring in to share. 


Positive Behavioral Intervention Supports Program

As part of our Positive Behavioral Intervention Supports program (PBIS), the students earn beads for showing one of our four main principles in action throughout the day.  The four guiding ideas are being safe, respectful, responsible, and ready to learn. The students have reached another milestone in the number of beads they have received as a class. Depending on weather and conditions we are hoping for a sledding/skating party at the Kehoe’s on Friday, Feb 14th. We will confirm the details next week.

Breakfast items

Thank you for those that have helped to keep our fridge stocked! Here is what we are looking at needing to keep our shelves stocked for the last week before Feb vacation. (juice, mini-bagels, frozen sausage links or bacon, & frozen berries for smoothies).

Wild Wings

With the assistance of Ben & Amos as chaperones, Sally and I were able to take a trip to Wild Wings on Wednesday with some of the students that could attend. The weather was perfect and the kids enjoyed the cross-country skiing and the snacks donated by Jill and Lisa. Thank you to everyone who made this trip a success!
