“All In All Eagle” Celebration

Last week students participated in our very first Attendance celebration called “All In All Eagle” the celebration included students who had zero absences and no more than 3 tardies. We had over 200 students with perfect attendance. We are so proud of all the students who attended!  The students enjoyed dancing, playing games and having a special treat. We will have another “All in All Eagle” celebration next quarter. Continue to talk with your students on the importance of coming to school every day!

 

La semana pasada, los estudiantes participaron en nuestra primera celebración de Asistencia llamada “Todas las Águilas Presente”, la celebración incluyó estudiantes que tuvieron cero ausencias y no más de 3 tardanzas.

Classroom Guidance Lessons

What a great week back! We did lessons on cooperation with Kindergarten, Second, and Third. Kindergarten loved making pizza! First great did a lesson on listening. Boy did they enjoy hiding the bunny and then listening to try to find him. Fourth and Fifth grade learned the importance of empathy! Ask your students what they learned about listening, cooperation, and empathy. Stay tuned next week we start our bullying lessons!

 

¡Qué gran semana pasada! Hicimos lecciones de cooperación con Kindergarten, Segundo y Tercero. ¡Kindergarten amó hacer pizza! Primero hizo una gran lección sobre escuchar.

Pregunte a sus alumnos qué aprendieron sobre escuchar, cooperación y empatía. ¡Estén atentos la próxima semana comenzamos nuestras lecciones de acoso!

 

“All In, All Eagle”

Don’t forget to take a look at our All In, All Eagle board which displays our school wide attendance progress! It’s located next to the doors leading to the fifth grade building. Each week we want to see an eagle with a “STAR” representing progress. Keep encouraging your students to come to school. Go Eagles!!! 

¡No olvide echar un vistazo a nuestra cartelera de Todos Adentro, Todas las Águilas, que muestra el progreso de asistencia en nuestra escuela! Está ubicado al lado de las puertas que conducen al edificio de quinto grado. Cada semana queremos ver un águila con una “ESTRELLA” que representa el progreso. Sigue alentando a tus estudiantes a venir a la escuela. Go Eagles !!!
