We ventured to the Sugar Bush to discover the winter tradition of tapping trees, collecting buckets of sap, and boiling it down to that golden amber syrup for which the Forest Glen Preserve is so well known. A special thank you to Ms. Brenna Karcher and the Vermilion County Conservation District for putting on a great trip and to Monicals for welcoming us for lunch!

PBIS Pals are coming to Kindergarten through 4th Grade!!
What are PBIS Pals?
PBIS Pals are a fun and simple way to improve a child's behavior! These colorful posters and animals engage young minds, reward positive behavior, and encourage good habits. Each poster features a PBIS Pal - cute characters designed to make learning fun. Each pal teaches a different value such as responsibility, respect, trustworthiness and more. With vivid images and short phrases, these posters quickly grab and keep your child's attention. These posters provide a platform for teaching and reinforcing concepts such as friendship, following rules and recognizing accomplishments.
How will they be used?
We are going to use them with the character trait of the month. We will use the character trait and the suggestions on the Pals card to award the pal to one of the students. A student can be picked every day when the teacher thinks they are deserving to earn the award of the Pal sitting on their desk. They will also receive a Pal certificate to take home. The pal will remain on that students’ desk for the day and then you will pick a new student the following day.
Don't forget we are selling yo-yos for the NED's Mindset Mission Assembly that will be on February 26. **Classic Yos - $10 **Super Spinners - $12 **Specialty Selection - $16 **Replacement String Pack - $4 **Yo-Yo Holster $8 Send cash with your child if you'd like to purchase one.
