Good evening students, staff, families and community,
Teacher Appreciation Week
This week we had the opportunity to highlight the work of some of our faculty members using social media, but as is the case with all social media, it represents only a snapshot in time. We are incredibly grateful and proud of the work of all our teachers, and we look forward to continuing to be able to highlight the wonderful work they are doing with students. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to you all!
School Lunch Hero Day
Today is School Lunch Hero Day. Our food service workers may not wear capes, but they are certainly heroes to us! If you see one of our wonderful food service workers, please be sure to tell them thank you for all they do.
Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we will be sharing wellness tips on our social media channels throughout the month. If you find yourself and/or your family in need of support, the following crisis resources are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week:
Volunteers of America Crisis Line: 1-800-584-3578
National Suicide Helpline: 1-800-273-8255
Crisis Text Line: Text HOME to 741741
Bus Behavior Reminders
We all find ourselves in need of reminders now and again. If you have a bus rider in your household, we’d appreciate you reminding them that their bus should be treated like a classroom on wheels. Classroom behavior is expected. For your younger students, please empower them to use their Safe Keeper Rituals to hold themselves and their peers accountable. Below are the rules posted on all buses, but a reminder at home would be appreciated too.
Quiet classroom voices
Sit facing forward, feet on floor
Keep aisle & emergency exits clear
Always listen to the driver
Hands, feet and belongings to yourself
Use kind words (and kind gestures!)
Save snacks for home or school
Use garbage can for trash
Upcoming School Calendar Items:
Now through May 27th - Promising Futures Art Exhibit
Monday, May 9 - Teacher Work Day (No School)
Monday, May 30 - Memorial Day
It’s a great night to be a Borderite, and, as always, a great night to be your superintendent.
