A NOTE FROM OUR ADMINISTRATION:
GRADE LEVEL ASSEMBLIES HAVE BEGUN!
This week, we had our first monthly assemblies. Kindergarten and first grade had theirs on Thursday and the second and third graders had theirs today. Fourth and fifth grade are scheduled for next Friday. These assemblies provide us with a great opportunity for community building. At each event, we discuss the 3Cs (Courage, Curiosity and Caring) and have students perform or showcase their school work. This week, our performances included singing, dancing, musical instruments, jokes and magic. We even had an incredible science experiment.
Ms. Graham’s class performed a skit, that they developed, based on our November diversity book, One by Kathryn Otoshi. Check out the video!
A NOTE FROM THE CHILD MIND INSTITUTE: TIPS FOR WINTER BREAK
We all look forward to holidays and vacations, but for children they can also be challenging. Unstructured time, departure from routine, and the demands of travel are unsettling for many kids and families.
This tip sheet, Tips for Winter Break, may be helpful for parents and caregivers looking for information about how to make the upcoming winter break both fun and relaxing for the whole family. Please share this document with parents and caregivers. More information on this topic may be found here.
