Updates from the Principal
It is hard to believe that it is the beginning of May with all the brisk weather we have been experiencing. If April showers truly bring May flowers, we should soon be in FULL bloom! As you can see by looking at the May calendar, we have a busy month ahead of us! As the weather improves, it will be important for us to help our students to stay focused on their academics. Your support and encouragement for your child to do their best in school is much appreciated. In order to have continued success, it will be important for our students to WORK HARD, before they play hard.
Throughout the school year, as part of our Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports Plan, we are having our students focus on the character traits that are represented in our T.I.G.E.R.S acronym. Currently, we are focusing on the letter “R” for showing RESPONSIBILY. In April, we had several activities that were planned by our teachers, our Student Council and our PTA for the students to show that we are responsible for caring for the Earth.
In May, we will be helping students to show responsibility for being positive and productive citizens of our school community. Students will be learning that people show responsibility by the choices they make. A responsible person always does his/her best and doesn’t blame others for his/her mistakes. You can be responsible by taking care of your possessions. You should take care of your school supplies, library books, and money. You count on others to be responsible, just as others count on you!
Recently, you received a survey to give our staff feedback on the success of our PBIS implementation. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. The survey will close on May 8th. If you have any comments or suggestions to help improve our Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports Plan, please email me at: NeumeyeJ@trumbullps.org
“Taking responsibility means never blaming anyone else for anything you are being, doing, having or feeling.”
