The Three Chairs

Students had a great assembly about bullying and ways to help each other. Students were told a story about The Three Chairs.

Chair #1: Good Example, helps others, takes the roll of "Roll Model/Witness/Example/Positive Leader"

Chair #2: Unsure, tends to follow chair #1, takes the roll of "Target". Targets cannot help being targeted. They are NOT at fault. They are NOT responsible for being targets. However, they can choose not to act like a victim. If a bully demands their lunch money, they don’t have to give it to him. If the bully wants to make them cry, then can hold their head up and be defiant. It takes courage to do the right thing.

Chair #3: Teases, unkind, takes the roll of the "Bully". A bully needs both a victim and spectators (audience). Change the bully, the bullying stops. If spectators step in to support the target, the bullying stops. If the target refuses to be a victim, the bullying stops (at least with this example).

YOU MATTER! BE A NEBO HERO!

SEP Conferences - Thursday, March 1st

Hi Parents!

Our SEP conferences will be held this Thursday, March 1st.  This will be student led conferences so there will be no sign-ups for this conference. 

We recommend that those whose last name that starts with A-L to come any time from 3:30-5:30 and M-Z to come any time between 6-8.  We understand that this time does not work for everyone so if you need to come to the other session that is fine.  We are just trying to prevent too much congestion.  Teachers will be eating dinner from 5:30-6pm.  

We hope to see you there!

Letter from our PTA Regarding Reflections

Attributions: 

Sierra Bonita parents, A few months back, we sent out a survey asking for your feedback regarding Reflections. On the survey we proposed 2 different ideas. The first one was to continue to participate in Reflections. The second was to opt-out of Reflections, but instead hold a Sierra Bonita arts contest with similar categories and prizes as Reflections. The school-only program would have less limitations and rules, but the participants would not have the opportunity to move on to district or beyond.  Most of the people that took the survey supported the idea of switching to a school-only contest. However, we are aware that some of you expressed concern and would like for our school to continue participating in Reflections. In order to make a decision, we'll have a meeting on Friday, March 2nd at 2:30 pm in the teachers' lounge to discuss both options. If you feel strongly about Reflections, your attendance is important. Amy van Dyk, our current Reflections chair, will explain what is needed for our school to continue participating in Reflections and will also share her ideas for a school-only program.  You can email us at sierrabonitapta@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thank you, Sierra Bonita PTA
