The school year is fast approaching and it is time to begin to plan for the 2023-2024 school year.

Coming this week will be a recorded video on how to explain Two Rules to students.

A new design to the website will be appearing soon with an opportunity for you to join in receiving free resources, E-books and inside looks at tips to improve all aspects to your school day.

I will be working on bringing to you “Solutions Speak” on Saturday’s with our YouTube Channel. This will focus for thirty minutes on a problem and a solution. I welcome any issues you have you would like for a solution to be discussed. First episode is this Saturday!

Two Rules primary focus is on creating an environment where every individual who walks through the doors of our school experiences a sense of belonging and security. Achieving this goal is a collective effort, and one of the ways we can accomplish it is by constantly asking ourselves important questions.

Before we speak, we should pause and inquire, "Will what I am about to say bring about positive feelings for myself and others? Will it contribute to their sense of safety?" Similarly, we must assess our actions by asking, "Will my actions promote well-being and a feeling of safety for myself and others?"

Should the answer to any of these questions be negative, we recognize that there is a problem that needs attention. It's crucial to acknowledge and address these issues promptly. We don't shy away from the responsibility to find solutions.

Ultimately, it boils down to making choices. We are empowered to make decisions that impact the atmosphere around us. By actively choosing to be part of the solution rather than the problem, we contribute to the nurturing and positive environment we seek to create.

Two Rules establishes a strong belief that a safe and welcoming school is not just an abstract concept; it is a tangible reality that we actively cultivate through conscious choices. Together, we can ensure that every individual feels valued, safe, and supported within our school community.

Many skills are gained by working in the Two Rules culture and it captures the essence of what we want in all of our schools. This collaboration of a home, school and community approach lifts students up as leaders of their learning, growth and development.
