Welcome to our very first Wednesday Reese Reminders newsletter! In an effort to increase communication with our Reese community of learners, we will send this newsletter home every Wednesday through our School Messenger email system. We hope you enjoy it!

REMINDERS

All students need to be logged into their classroom Zoom by 8:00 each day.
If you have not picked up your B, C, or D track student’s textbooks/supplies, please come by the office as soon as possible and one of us will assist you.

Check our Facebook page and/or website on Fridays for our new school announcements video!

SCHOOL NEWS

In the coming weeks, this section will include special shout-outs to our Teacher of the Week and our Eagle Flyer winners! Stay tuned!

FRIDAY’S KINDNESS REPORT

This section will include our weekly Kindness Report. Parents, if you would like to acknowledge a staff member or student for being kind, please send Mrs. Vermette or Miss Kissinger your message in an email. 😊

VISIBLE LEARNING TRAIT

This month’s trait is “Learn from Mistakes!”
This is an easy one for us ALL to relate to as we begin this Distance Learning adventure. Please be patient with our children, our teachers, and our administrators as we ALL figure out the best way to teach and communicate using Zoom, breakout rooms, small groups, and ClassDojo. We are ALL making mistakes and learning as we go.

POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION & SUPPORTS (PBIS)

David Reese is a PBIS school, which means we have a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Here are the school-wide behavioral expectations. All students AND adults who are a part of our Reese community are responsible for their full implementation.
