Fall is in the air! We are leaving behind the hot, humid days of summer and heading toward the cool, crisp days of fall and winter.
With fall and winter and the change of the weather comes cold and flu season. Please check out the block on our website that talks about how to stay healthy during the cooler months. We are working toward having 97% or greater for overall attendance. Illness affects our attendance very dramatically. There is also a block on our website that discusses attendance. Please take a look at it.
Our Back to School Night was a great success. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend and enjoy the delicious taco dinner prepared by the Masons, the very busy Book Fair, the Community Resource Fair, and of course, the inspiring and helpful meetings with the teachers. We also talked at our Parent Meeting about ways to get involved with PTA. We have lots of great ideas but will need help to bring them to life. We have a Fall Carnival and Family Movie night scheduled for Friday, October 27, 2017. We would appreciate any and all parents who would be willing to help to contact your child's teacher as soon as possible.
Our main goal is to make sure our students are safe. Please talk with your students about what is and is not safe behavior. It is very important that we all feel safe and comfortable here at school so that our main focus is to learn.
The most important rules to reinforce at home are:
* Keep hands, feet and body to yourself!
* Listen to the adults on campus and follow instructions!
* Do your work!
* Behave in a safe way!
All of our classroom rules fall into these four categories!
Please check out our entire website for information about things happening in our school! If you have suggestions for how we can make this an even better school, please let us know. Better yet, get involved in our parent program! "Many hands make light work!"
With something to think about and a WHOLE LOT of Thunderbolt PRIDE, see you all around campus!

How to Resolve Conflict
6 months ago
A while back we had a wonderful assembly about conflict management for our students put on by Kaiser Permanente called "It's Stop Time!" The Kaiser Permanente performance group also came and talked with our parents about stress. It was called "One Minute!" The same message was delivered to our parents as it was to our students. Some of our upper graders even attended with our parents, which was wonderful! Our families learned that when they find themselves in a difficult situation that they should STOP, BREATHE (for One Minute!) and CHOOSE! As we are considering our choices, we should THINK before we speak or act! As we THINK, we ask ourselves:
Is it True or Trustworthy?
Is it Helpful?
Is it Inspiring or Important?
Is it Necessary?
Is it Kind?
If our CHOICE is not any of these, we should not say it or do it!
