Behavior

Dear Grade 5 Families, 

    Throughout the past week, Mrs. Jacquard and I have been meeting with many grades 5 students as situations arise throughout the school day. We have seen many "hands-on" instances and unkind words being said to each other. Parents have been contacted for students who have put hands on others or made these statements. I would like to let you know we will be having our school social worker and psychologist meet with classes and small groups of students to work on building relationships and working through challenges. All classroom teachers, as well as Mrs. Jacquard and I, will be involved in this process. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. 

Mrs. Mandese and Mrs. Jacquard
