TEACHER/STAFF TRAINING
Teachers and staff members from around the MRUSD district are spending two days to St. Albans City School to update their training on positive (conscious) discipline (or PD) June 22nd and 23rd. The goal of the training is to practice reinforcing positive behaviors in children and colleagues, and to strive to see the best in every person. Ultimately, the district wants every child and adult in our school system to learn and develop in a positive environment.

STUDENTS HEADED OUT FOR SUMMER BREAK
On Tuesday and Wednesday (June 20th and 21st, 2017) batches of students departed the building for their summer break.  As is the tradition, staff stood outside at the bus loading zone to say goodbye and wave. There were hugs, smiles, tears and excitement. The buses hooted their horns as they roared off into the community. In two short months a new school year cycle will begin.

Wednesday June 21st was step up day for students moving up to a different learning community. PreK students moved up to Kindergarten. Kindergarteners moved up to 1st grade. Third graders moved up to 4th grade. Sixth graders moved up to 7th grade. It was a two hour day filled with welcomes and introductions. Everyone was excited by the changes that are ahead.

HOSS'S DOGG HOUSE 
Many learning communities have recently taken a quick walking trip to Hoss's Dogg House for some creemees.  In this case it was Triumph.  The students loved the short field trip -even 4th grade who got caught in a downpour on the way back to school (see the last pictures).
