To further build on our September Life Skill of Respect, all students are signing a Resolution of Respect during their Counselor-led SEL Lessons this month. The Resolution of Respect is the first step to BPE becoming a No Place for Hate® recognized school. The No Place for Hate® initiative through the ADL provides a framework for schools to build a positive and inclusive community where respect is the norm. You can read more about the ADL and the No Place for Hate initiative here.
Our 5th graders have officially started their Leadership Jobs for September! During Fitness and Recess, dozens of 5th graders can be seen serving BPE as teacher helpers and working on recycling, lost and found and the life skills board. Parents, if you have a 5th grader and want to help them keep up with their jobs, you can review the sign up sheets at http://bpesel.weebly.com/5th-grade-leadership.html. Sign up sheets are also posted on the Leadership Bulletin Board outside of the Counseling Center.
