SUPER SCHOOL
by Bethany Wallace

Your favorite heroes from Camp Super Friend are back for a new adventure! It’s Marvel’s first day at Asteroid Academy and Jet introduces him to Danrelle, a girl with invisibility power, and Tilly, a girl with super-strength and a temper to match. When Danrelle uses her power to steal Tilly’s rocket ball and bully her into losing her temper, Tilly’s reaction puts her in danger of being suspended. Can Tilly learn to manage her emotions in time? Will the students of Asteroid Academy learn the power of the three R’s: Recognizing, Reporting and Refusing Bullying Behavior before their actions cause superhero-sized trouble?

 

Coffee and Chat. First Friday, monthly

Every first Friday we’re gathering at 7:40am-8:40am to discuss different topics, give updates and listen to your ideas and concern. Check the Calendar for the next event.

October is a National Principals Month and it’s our opportunity to say “thank you” to principals everywhere and to share with the community all the great things that principals do.
