Information & Announcements

 What is this Social Emotional Lesson being taught school-wide on March 28?

All students will be taught “How to Interrupt and Respond to Hurtful, Discriminatory, or Oppressive Language.”  This is the third of four SEL lessons developed for secondary students in BSD.  The first was on Harassment, Intimidation & Bullying (recognizing and reporting), and the second was on Positive Online Communication (sticking up for each other).

At Tyee & BSD, we want every student and staff member to feel welcomed for who they are.  That’s why this matters!  We are also covering the following Social Emotional Learning Standards:

Self-Management: Demonstrating the ability to regulate emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in context with people different than oneself

Social Awareness: Taking perspective of and empathizing with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures

Social Management: Having the ability to make safe and constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions

Be sure to ask your student about the lesson on Thursday evening!

7th & 8th Grade Field Trips – Save the Date & Chaperones Needed

**Thanks to those who have signed up so far.  Due to museum requirements and also the amount of walking/exploring that will be done, need a 1:5 adult-to-student ratio.  We still need 50+ more chaperones for each trip, so please sign up.  We need many parents to help.

New this year, Tyee students in 7th & 8th grade will be participating in a science themed field trip. This is a wonderful opportunity for enhanced learning outside the classroom for our students. In order to make these field trips successful, we will need a large number of chaperones to attend.  Please consider accompanying our students on one or both of these field trip opportunities.

Stay tuned for more detailed information about these upcoming field trips, but please save the date for this fun chaperone experience!

Dates & Venues for the Field Trips:

  • 8th Grade:  Tuesday, April 16.   8th grade will be split between two venues: The Museum of Flight, and the Pacific Science Center.  (There are two locations due to capacity constraints at the venues.)  The school will work to assign which students go to each venue based on classroom assignments.
  • 7th Grade:  Thursday, April 25.  7th graders will attend the University of Washington’s Engineering Discovery Days.

The field trips will take place during regular school hours.  Please consider helping out by volunteering to chaperone one or both of the trips.  This is a great opportunity for you to spend time with Tyee students at an educational, off-campus event.  Chaperones will ride the field trip bus with students.  Chaperones need to arrive at Tyee by 8:30 am on the day of the trip, and they would return to Tyee no later than 3 pm.  You don’t need to have a student in either grade to volunteer.  Feel free to volunteer for one or both trips!

If you are interested in chaperoning, please fill out the below interest form(s) by the dates listed below and ensure you have completed a BSD background check.

 

If you have any questions, please email fieldtrip7@tyeeptsa.org (for the 7th grade trip) or fieldtrip8@tyeeptsa.org (for the 8th grade field trip).  We really appreciate your help!
