PBIS- Be Safe and Be Clean

Students and families, this week we will focus on being safe and being clean.  Students, part of being safe includes your responsibility to be a safe classmate and friend.  Words hurt so use words that would best represent the honor of your family.  Remember to keep your hands and feet to yourself at all times.  Finally, the school is OURs together, so let’s all work to keep it clean and inviting.  If you see something that needs to be picked up and thrown away, even if you didn’t drop it there, please lend a helping hand and throw it away. 


That’s it for this week’s news from school!  Have a tigerrific evening!
