Dear Parents -
The 2018 Christmas Concert will take place on December 6, 2018 in the Aitkin High School Auditorium. The first performance will be at 6:15PM for kindergarten and 1st grade students, and the second performance will be at 7:15PM for the 2nd and 3rd grade students. These performances require free tickets. If you have not received your tickets yet, please stop by the Rippleside office. We have added a performance for those adults that cannot make the evening performance. This will take place on December 6th in the Rippleside cafeteria at 9:30 a.m. for K-1 and 10:05 for 2nd and 3rd grade. We look forward to seeing you then!
PBIS UPDATE—CATCH THE WAVE
The December theme in the school is Random Acts of Kindness. This area will be discussed and targeted in the classrooms.
With our weather changing, I would like to remind parents of the importance of dressing your child properly before they leave their residence each day.
*The following includes our expected school-wide dress for each grade level.
Students in grades K-4 must wear the following items to play on ALL areas of the playground:
* SNOW PANTS
If students in grades K-4 wear only the following they are expected to play on the BLACKTOP ONLY:
Our 5th and 6th graders are only required to wear the following items to play on ALL areas of the playground:
*Note: Below freezing temperatures and no snow expectation is: ALL students must wear a COAT, HAT & GLOVES/MITTENS.
The link between families and positive behavioral interventions and supports is an important one. When families are meaningfully involved in educational activities their children do better in school. Families play an important part in their child’s education and social development.
I would like to give parents a few ideas on how to involve your children with PBIS in the home.
* Encourage your children to show Catch the Wave behavior at home.
* Ask your child to give examples of each expectation in school and at home.
* Do you hold your student accountable for their actions while rewarding them for correct behavior? Remember to give a minimum of 5 positives for every 1 negative.
