RES PRINCIPAL'S BLOG TO STAFF - SUN., MARCH 26, 2017

Dear Resilient Staff,

Last week was a tough week for many of us.  This past weekend was an emotional one for many of us as we grieved together at the various services for Stephen, as well as at his celebration of life at the school.  Being a school employee, we all have access to "EAP" - Employee Assistance Program, a free and confidential service, to help us all through the grieving. There's a card on the staff bulletin board if you need the number.   (If you're participating in PATH, there's also a bonus of points....)  Please take care of yourselves AND each other.   Spring IS coming and with it, it's healing powers of mud and birds singing!  


KUDOS to STAFF Who "Stepped Up":  
  • Elaine "Señor" who volunteered to help with a  busy lunch Friday.
  • Lisa, Libbet, Pam, and Liza for attending the CPR course Thursday night to help keep us safe!
  • Pam B. and Lisa who helped us clean up Saturday after Stephen's Celebration of Life reception.
Important Items to Know:   

Extra Support - During this transition time between counselors, Jean check will be coming an additional half day per week and we have added some mindfulness time on as well.  Jean would like to come into your classes for 5-10 min. for small "health" lessons.  Please talk to her about a time she can do this Tues. or Wed.  I am available for "Social Thinking" lessons with your students on Wed. and Thurs. as well.  

PBISPlease review the expectations chart with your students and make sure it's posted somewhere in your classroom.
