On Wednesday of this week Courtney Flower was a guest during 7th Grade Kansas History. She explained how the city of Stockton functions as a city, her role as city manager/clerk, skill set and education to be successful in the position. We discussed how the budget works to pay employees, pool expenses, street repairs and the water treatment plant. The class was engaged and inspired by what it takes for the city to function on a daily basis.

USD 271 Redesign Spotlight As part of our social-emotional goal area, USD 271 staff has participated in three in-services with Rebecca Lewis to become trauma responsive. Through this training, we have implemented Zones of Regulation with our students and staff. Zones of Regulation is a tool used to help monitor, self-regulate and control emotions. Zone of Regulation uses four colors, red, yellow, green and blue, to help students visually and verbally recognize how they are doing emotionally at any given moment. Students and staff understand that anyone can experience the four zones throughout their day, but by understanding the zones, we are learning to adjust our thinking and using our tools to get us back into the green zone and ready to learn or teach. "They help me so I can think of how I feel and then I can think of how to have a better day. Because if I am frustrated, I get angry and cannot think to do my math. Zones of Regulation help me get control so I can think." 4th Grader
Redesigning schools has built a network of teachers learning from each other as we dream, research, and implement. Meadowlark Elementary visited SGS on Friday. Our Tiger Ambassadors are an important piece of each visit! #TigerPride271
