Anti-Bullying Education Continued
The three intermediate classes convened to continue discussion of maintaining a positive school climate. They talked about name calling and how it impacts others and reflected on behavior that is appropriate and inappropriate. They also discussed tattling versus telling and how it is important to tell an adult at school if something has happened that makes a student feel bad.
NECAPs are over! Several kids do have to make up a test if they were absent so if your child missed a day, please make every effort to have them at school next week.
Your children might mention seeing some new faces at school in the coming weeks. Word about our school has spread throughout the education community. Educators from other schools are interested in observing our practices and learning about our program. Next Friday, two teachers from the Guilford School District will be observing in our classrooms. In addition, our professional development for teachers continues next Thursday when Ms. Petzold and Ms. Haynes visit an award winning elementary school to observe Responsive Classroom practices. The Responsive Classroom approach emphasizes that optimal learning will take place when children’s social/emotional as well as academic needs are met. When positive behavior is continually taught, modeled and reinforced it promotes kind behavior and reduces discipline problems. Ms. Petzold and Ms. Haynes will share what they learn with the rest of the staff.
