Dressing for the Weather of the Day / Lost and Found
With colder weather approaching, I wanted to share information about weather and dressing for the weather of each day. We encourage all of our students to come to school dressed appropriately for the weather of that day. Please assist your children to wear appropriate cold weather clothing.
If possible, please place a name or family name in coats and jackets, so we can get a lost coat or jacket returned.
If your child has lost a jacket, coat, or any other item, please look through the Lost and Found bins located in the hallway near the auditorium. Thank you!
At Sierra Bonita, the “Bully Blocker” program will continue to be taught and implemented by Mike Lewis, our school counselor, and our staff. Students, working with Mr. Lewis have been able to sign a pledge to be a Bully Blocker.
The promise of a Bully Blocker is:
- Stand up to Bullying
- Never Bully
- Be a Friend
We appreciate each student being a “Bully Blocker”. If a student witnesses a bullying act taking place, directed at either himself/herself or another student, the student is to ask the individual bullying to, “please stop...” The student will then make sure the student is alright and extend care and friendship. We are proud of our students for being bully blockers and being kind and respectful to each other.
