Hoping the 2023-2024 school year has started off well for everyone!

The new design to the website is great! Thank you @Jodi Neal for all of your continued work. More will be appearing soon with additional opportunities for you to join in receiving free resources, E-books, booking me for speaking events, workshops for staff, students and your community. Additional resources for inside looks at tips to improve all aspects to your school day.
I will be working on bringing to you “Solutions Saturday” on Saturday’s with our YouTube Channel @Bethesolutiondaily8835
These will focus on a problem and a solution for a short period of time. I welcome any issues you have you would like for a solution to be discussed. You will find a few episodes already at the site and another one coming 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.
