Welcome Back To School

The teachers and students are working hard to

get back into the “swing of things” and everyone

is doing a GREAT job!   We are spending the first

few weeks learning the rules and routines of our

school, including what is expected behavior in the

classroom, the hallway, the bathroom, the lunchroom,

and the playground.   Mrs. Marten has shared the book,

Have You Filled A Bucket Today? with all of the students

(a book about treating people with kindness). The

children are working very hard to “fill that bucket” each

day with the choices they are making.
