A Message from the Principal:
Spring is here and with it will come so many wonderful learning possibilities. We hope to have the students outdoors each and every day possible. Please keep that in mind as you dress them for their day. Layers are best, so we can be sure they are comfortable, and their footwear should be secure and sturdy for running, climbing, and exploring. Pack an extra set of clothes (socks, too) in your child’s backpack, so we have something to change into should a puddle or muddy spot take him/her by surprise.
Our Olweus tip for this month is, encourage random acts of kindness. Parents can do this in so many ways. By talking about what makes you feel appreciated and special, you can start that conversation with your child and learn what makes them feel special, too. The next step is to help your child realize that others around them have similar feelings and that we each have the power to make the livesof those around us better. Buy the coffee of the person in line behind you. Assist an elderly person in the grocery store parking lot. Give the best parking spot to someone else. Pick up a family members favorite treat and leave it at their place on the kitchen table. These small acts, when discussed, shared, and celebrated, will inspire your child to create that same joy in his/her world. You can brainstorm ideas for how your child can make someone’s day brighter at school, too.
Thank you for your constant support and cooperation! We are looking forward to a spectacular spring!
