News and Tidbits

Hello Families,

I hope you had a restful fall break with your families.

Thank you for attending this year's parent/teacher conferences. The participation this year was terrific and we appreciate the partnership of our amazing Falcon Ridge families.

Our theme this year is Keep on Truckin'. Our character development will focus on a growth mindset. This month's character trait is respect. Be sure and ask your student if he/she has earned a Falcon Card.

Please read the coming events for October in this newsletter.

We are glad you have chosen Falcon Ridge Charter School as your school of choice. We are honored to partner with you in your child's education.

Good Manners for Kids to Have

  • Saying “thank you” after something is received, given or exchanged.
  • Using the word “please” when you’re asking for help or would like to receive something you want or need.
  • Looking people in the eye when you greet them or if they’re talking to you. (Once toddlers master please and thank you, then begin working on eye-contact.)
  • Greeting others with “hello” or “goodbye” as well as responding to someone when they greet you.
  • Saying “I’m sorry” or “excuse me.”
  • Holding the door open for others.
  • Not speaking over others, but waiting until it’s their turn to talk.
