Classroom guidance has started!

This year, all grade levels will be learning a problem solving model; STOP, THINK, PICK A PLAN!

Often times when there are disputes between students, they are able to work through the problem and find reasonable ways to solve it. This model enables student to stop and calm down so they are able to communicate in a rational way. Students are then asked to think about the problem; what happened, why did it happen, what happens next? And finally once students are calm and are able to resolve the issue, they can pick a plan; walk away, ignore it, go find something else to do, express how they feel, etc. or if need be, make the choice to find an adult to help them.
