SMS Announcements-Monday, Oct. 23rd-A Day



This week’s focus will be keeping our bodies to ourselves.

We have seen an increase of students “dunking on each other,” playing tackle football at recess; hitting one another in a “joking” way in a variety of spaces, etc.

We want to reiterate the importance of keeping our bodies to ourselves.  This will decrease or prevent situations from escalating to something more serious where administrators are involved and consequences are handed out.


Wednesdays – Silver Fusion at 7 am

Fridays – Purple Fusion at 7 am

Next Meeting is Wednesday, October 25
