Other concepts we’re incorporating

This month, we’ve been focusing on what it means to be a good leader by helping students identify good choices they make and celebrating them. Using affirmative language, our team inspires our students to be their best by keeping themselves and their classmates feeling safe and happy.

“I like the way you’re using your listening ears, thank you for being a good leader.”

“I like the way you put your backpack away, thanks for being a good leader.”

“A good choice now would be to put your book away and line up for lunch.”


Spring is all-consuming! We had loads of fun exploring food through the shapes of caterpillars and butterflies.
