Notes from the Folwell Falcon Morning Announcements today, 9.27.19!

Falcons S.O.A.R.!! 

Here at Folwell we want everyone to feel welcome and that they belong.  We know we're welcome when people smile at us and greet us with friendly words!  We know we belong when we're included and invited to play at recess!  We know we belong when we notice the ways we're all the same and accept the ways we're different! This week, take time to greet others with a smile and invite them to play!

S - Safety
Safe actions keep everyone's bodies from being hurt.  When we act in safe ways, we keep our hands to ourselves and don't use them to touch others in hurtful ways.  When we use safe words, we make sure nobody's feelings are hurt.  Safe words are kind and respectful! 

O - Own Your Behavior
One way is to be responsible.  This helps make our school a place where everyone can learn.  When we're responsible, we can be trusted to do the right thing.  We help others.  We clean up our messes  We admit when we make mistakes or do the wrong thing. 

A - Always Learning
Another way to be responsible is when we focus on our school work.

R - Respectful
Being respectful helps everyone feel welcome and safe.  When we act respectfully, we listen carefully to each other, help each other, and try to understand how someone feels.  When we speak respectfully, we use friendly words and say please and thank you.  We don't call other people names. 

Thanks for your hard work, Falcons!  
You matter and YOU make a difference!
