Fran and Sarah share our hands picture from Traci’s 1/2 classroom today. We are learning more about the African philosophy of Ubuntu, “I am because we are”. Hand in hand cultivating our humanity towards others.

7/8 SEL

Our 7/8 classes are finishing their second week of SEL lessons with our counseling team (Jeremy & Sherry) and Carol supporting the digital citizenship units.   We covered an introduction to SEL with the classes at our first meeting.   Here is a peek at Unit 1. 
This week’s topic was a little bit heavier with online safety (digital footprint), student safety (Safe2tell) and we started each session with a bit of music and imagery to ground us together.  This week we were so excited to have Jeremy give Teran’s class a personal “concert” and there were good vibes all around.
Please reach out if you have any questions or want to know more about our lessons we have planned for our 7/8 community this year.

Covid Screen Before Coffee

Parents will be receiving a Back to School Help Guide prior to kids returning on September 29th.  One item that is new to all of us is Passive Screening.

We want to plant this seed now because it is going to be REQUIRED.

Passive COVID screening is when a parent answers a series of questions in Infinite Campus about the current state of health and contact with the community of their child.

Parents- you will need to do this every day. If this is not done, your child will not be able to enter school.

Access here:
