Mesnier Weekly Update


All Belong, All Learn, All Lead To Succeed

Leadership Training

Last week students participated in Leadership Training.  Students learned and practiced the expectations for the hallway, restroom, bus, cafeteria, and playground.  We are focusing on being respectful, responsible and ready to learn.  Our school wide expectations chart is shown below.  

Cougar Paws

All staff in the building are using Cougar Paws to give students positive praise for following the school expectations.  Students will collect these tickets until they have enough to trade them for a classroom prize.
