Hello dear Jefferson families, we hope this letter finds you well. We wanted to share with you that upon returning to school from winter break we will be doing a school wide expectations boost/review. Each classroom will be watching/discussing with students videos that were put together by the PBIS team (Positive Behavior Interventions and supports). The videos teach/review ways that we can be kind, helpful and safe in every area of our school (lunchroom, playground, halls, etc.)  The PBIS team created one video specifically for the playground in winter time.  Each classroom is expected to review all the videos with their students. 

We encourage you to have conversations with your students about ways that they can be kind, helpful, and safe. Please remind them that we have expectations at school to help our school family be safe and that it is important we all do our part in following expectations. We all have the power of making a positive impact in our school family by being kind, helpful and safe everywhere in our school.

Wishing you and your loved ones well!

 This month during our PBIS assembly and PBIS Mash-Up and as part of teaching our students the Conscious Discipline structures in our classroom we will be learning about The Safe Place. The Safe Place is a space in our classrooms that is utilized as a self-regulation learning center. The Safe Place in our classrooms may look slightly different. However they are all equipped with tools for calming and self-regulation. The Safe Place provides students with a space to remove themselves from a situation that may be triggering them so that they are able to become calm and maintain control when they are angry, frustrated, sad, or scared.  The Safe Place is NOT time out. We will learn together the 5 Steps to Self-Regulation: 

I am

I calm

I feel

I choose

I Solve

Conscious Discipline offers resources on their website for families. If you would like to learn more about creating a safe place at your home for your kids or check-out other resources or ideas of strategies you could use at home, feel free to visit their website and explore. Here is link:
