Festival of Cultures Thank You!

Our Festival of Cultures event was a huge success this year! We enjoyed the performances by our 1st and 4th graders, along with the Mexican Dance Troupe that celebrated with us. Thank you to all our of families and staff that hosted tables for the event.


SEL Spot

During April, our social emotional learning time has focused a lot on friendship skills and solving problems with friends. We are practicing being kind and trying to understand another person’s perspective. We teach Second Step’s problem-solving steps:

S - Say the Problem

T - Think of Solutions

E - Explore Consequences (of each solution)

P - Pick the Best Solution (that is fair to everyone)

Try the STEP process at home if you experience a problem!
