Grant Supports Extended Learning for Portland Students
In an effort to streamline communication between home and school, we are implementing a school-wide “Thursday Folder” system. All Hall School notices, newsletters and informational flyers will be sent home on Thursday of each week. A plastic two-pocket folder has been supplied to every student to help manage the distribution of these printed materials. We ask families to review the contents of the Thursday Folder and return the empty pocket folder to your child’s backpack for a Friday morning return to school. We hope that this communication system helps to keep your family more informed and connected to your child’s education.
At Hall School our staff is fully committed to building and maintaining a safe and respectful school environment. Teachers have been hard at work, since the first day of school, establishing a culture of respect and rapport within their individual classroom communities. They have also been sharing common school-wide expectations for the hallway, cafeteria and playground. Daily “Morning Meetings” within each classroom help to establish a positive tone and foster student engagement in the learning process.
Beginning in mid-October, our staff will add an additional component to our school-wide efforts to maintain a safe and respectful school. We will be implementing a social and emotional curriculum that targets skills for social and academic success. This “Second Step” curriculum is a proactive approach to teaching desired social skills, such as: empathy, emotion management and problem solving within social contexts. More information about the Second Step program will be sent home, so that we are better able to partner with families through the use of common language and understanding.Cynthia Remick
