    Buddy Upstander

     An “upstander” is someone who recognizes when something is wrong and acts to make it right. When an upstander sees or hears about someone being bullied, they speak up. Being an upstander is being a hero: we are standing up for what is right and doing our best to help support and protect someone who is being hurt. In many ways, this is another word for being socially responsible.

    SMS PAL has chosen to create a Be a Buddy, not a Bully campaign for our Palees. This is being done cooperatively with FCCLA /PAL students who are participating in STAR event competitions. Each week there will be a short presentation then a breakout session to teach anti-bullying skills and activities. The students are being supervised by Mrs. Hill (FCCLA sponsor) and Mrs. Palmarchuk (PAL sponsor). The students have selected various anti-bullying lessons to create their own campaign. They will use the lessons and the presentations in their STAR Event competition. We are excited with all they have done! I am very proud of the leadership roles they have taken to put together lessons and create activities to support the district's anti-bullying program.

    Temp ID's and Absence Excuses

    Make sure you go get your temporary ID's and turn in your doctor's notes at the stage before you do anything else in the mornings.  

    Foyer Expectations in the Morning

    Remove hoods and hats upon entry.  No congregating, all students must be seated on a bench or table.  Once benches/tables are full, all students should move to the lower level until bell (not one minute before the bell).  These expectations are in place for safety, monitoring, and social appropriateness.

    Electronic Devices

    Airpods and earbuds are not to be worn in classrooms unless permission is given by the teacher.  Smart watches are considered communication devices and will be taken up if used during class just like a phone.  There are to be no warnings given for these offenses.  If taken up, the teachers are to send them to the office and not return them to the student.
