This week, students who eat lunch at school reviewed how to be safe, kind and ready in the lunchroom and at recess. These lessons were great opportunities to expand students’ awareness of how their own actions (positively or negatively) impact others as well as to foster increased self-regulation and independence skills.  #d57learns  #westbrookschoolrocks 🐝
Bee Sash Winners from this week and our Westbrook Beehive, full of Bee Tickets from Westbrook kids being Safe, Kind, and Ready! 🐝 
We are committed to teaching and reinforcing positive behaviors with our amazing, young learners! #d57learns #westbrookschoolrocks
When you win the Bee Sash award at Westbrook, your name is announced over the intercom and your classmates squeal with pride for you as you journey up to the front office to receive your honorary sash. Next, you get your photo taken alongside your fellow honorees, which gets posted to the Westbrook Website. To top it all off, you then form a Beesash Winners’ huddle, where you do a special, super loud cheer (some favorites: “We love Westbrook!” “Safe! Kind! Ready!”). It’s a pretty big moment in a Westbrook kid’s life. ♥️

Ms. Fergus’ students had so much fun at indoor recess today!
At our January Staff Meeting this morning , the Westbrook Staff dove deeper into our professional book study, The Whole Brain Child by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. and Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D. This month’s chapter focused on how we can help children integrate their memories for growth and healing. Brain science shows that memory is all about linkages in the brain. The authors write, “What all this means for us as parents is when our kids seem to be reacting in unusually unreasonable ways, we need to consider whether an implicit memory has created a mental model that we need to help them explore.” #westbrookschoolrocks #d57learns
