Regulation Stations
Mr. Krygiel needs our help! We are in need of little tents/play forts so that we may put a “Regulation Station” in each Roosevelt classroom. A Regulation Station is a safe space for a student to move to when when he or she needs to calm/reset and return to a ready to learn state. These will be located in the classroom, away from peers for any student to use when they may need to take a break. These regulation stations will be equipped with various tools to assist students in self-regulating and getting back to the class. Please email Mr. Krygiel at if you have a tent or fort to donate. Thank you!

Children’s Theatre performance “Super!”: 11/23
