2nd Quarter!

It’s so exciting to think we’re 1/4 of the way through the year! I think the students were excited to be back from Fall Break, and we’re all rejuvenated to get back to learning.

I’ll be finishing up the October lessons in the next two weeks. I’ve really been enjoying going into the classrooms. They’ve been able to share a lot that they retained from last year. I’ve also incorporated giving “Calm Down Kits” to each classroom, so we’ve been discussing the rules around the kits.

In November, we’re going to start on the 3rd bullying lesson. The topic varies from grade to grade, so ask your student what Mrs. Harris talked about! You can also look for the Home Links to come home with your student monthly.

It Finally Feels Like Fall!

I am so happy that the weather is finally cooler! It seems like fall took a long time to come. With the predictions being a long, cold, snowy winter, I’m trying to appreciate the nice weather even more!

We’ve been busy here at Everett with lots of learning! I have finished up all of the first bullying lessons, and have started Bullying Lesson #2. For older students, this lesson focuses on who bystanders are and how they can help when they see bullying. For younger students, we are talking more specifically about how to report bullying, and who they can report bullying to.

The groups I’ve been meeting with are finishing up, and we will be starting new groups second quarter. Second quarter is, afterall, just around the corner! I’ve also been lucky enough to meet with lots of students individually!

As a reminder, the Everett Goodie Hunt is Thursday, the 10th, from 6:00-7:00.
