This month we are studying the word gratefulness as a part
of our character education. Appreciation, gratitude, and thanks
are words often used interchangeably, but they each have very
precise meanings that complement and balance one another.
Appreciation is setting a value on something. It is esteeming
a person, object, experience, or idea. Gratitude is the feeling
one has after a kind word, deed, or gift that has been received,
especially when it was unexpected or undeserved. Thanks is the
outward expression made by a grateful person toward those who
have inspired gratitude. It is acknowledging that a favor has
The first day of fall has just passed and winter is right around
the corner. Soon we will be listening to the radio for bus information.
Are we having school? Will the buses be running late? Are the
buses running on hard surface roads only?
Have you ever thought about the inconvenience of not having a
school bus pick up your children? Riding a school bus is often
an over looked privilege. It is important to us to provide safe
transportation to our students. In order to do this it is necessary
for the bus drivers, students, parents and the school district
personnel to work in harmony.
The administrative staff discussed ways to ensure the safety of
our students with our bus drivers. As a result, we are cracking
down on behavior problems that are occurring on the bus. We have
developed a bus policy that we will be strictly enforcing.
Profanity will not be permitted on the bus. If your child uses
profanity on the bus it will be an automatic bus suspension. Another
area we are working on is seeing to it that no students are walking
around when the bus is in motion. We care deeply about our students
and we want their bus ride to be safe and pleasant.
We have really appreciated the support we have received from our
families. Please remember my office door is open come by anytime
to see me. We welcome your suggestions.
