We are having a great time at Hall! Our Character Education program has been expanded and we had our first Character Recognition assembly on Sept. 23. We brought back the W.D. Hall song written by former teacher and principal, Larry Marinesi. Our school counselor, Krissy Staley, and our Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) committee have provided leadership in developing our new program and school-wide practices at Hall. We recognized Stand Up to Bullying Week as part of our character development. Theme days were spirited, especially classroom theme day in which students wore coordinated t-shirts and outfits. You could feel the comradery and positive energy all around. During the week, fifth grade students also participated in BizTown interviews with our community volunteers: CVUSD Trustee Justin Slagle, and some wonderful ladies from the Bostonia Women’s Club. Additionally, we started our Computer Science program with students in grades TK-3 learning chess and coding. Students in grades 4-5 are developing more advanced coding skills as well as robotics and modding. Yes, we’re busy and we’re having a blast learning and developing great relationships. Hurray for Hall!
