Week of April 17, 2020
Message from the Principal
We hope this newsletter finds you well. I hope you are all settled now on our weekly format. If you are still having issues logging in, please make sure to reach out to your child's teacher and they can help you get onto our on-line apps.
It is essential that your child get on each program at least 4 times a week and do about 15 minutes each program. Perhaps set a timer, or have a daily schedule and check off sheet to make sure your child is completing STMath, Zearn, Lexia and their assigned Raz Kids or Epic books. Another helpful hint is to save the passwords so your child can log right on. Also, they will have daily writing assignments as well. If you child does this each day, it should be maximum two hours a day. Thank you for your help in this matter.
Each year we consider many factors when placing children in homerooms. Your insights along with those of teachers/administrators, will enable us to make the best possible decisions together. There is a link below that we would like you to fill out called Student Profile Class Consideration. Because we value your input regarding your child/children, we ask that you complete this form by Friday, April 24. Thank you for your time in this matter.
Please stay healthy and safe.

Wellness with Weaver-Our School Counselor
Hello Hebron Families!
I hope all of you are healthy and staying active. Last time I wrote I told you that we are also dealing with stress and trying to find ways to cope. I have many of the same stressors most of you do. All of us are trying to figure out this whole idea of working at home and share the space with other people we are not use to being with all day, every day. I don’t know about each of you, but I am use to spending short amounts of time in so many different spaces along with so many different people. And it’s not usually with my “family.” It’s with my “Hebron family.” And I’m used to those people. I know who will come see me and give me a hug every day, I know who will start a little drama throughout the day, who will make me laugh, and who will make me frustrated. That’s what families do, right? By now you know which child will wake up and be a ray of sunshine and make you smile first thing every day and which child will cause you frustration first thing in the morning.
If you are not working outside the home right now you are probably missing your “work family” because that is who you are used to spending your time with. You are used to their personalities and how you usually react to them. You probably miss doing the job you do every day with the people you usually do it with. So many changes that cause us stress. I once read a book entitled “Who Moved My Cheese.” This book made a big impression on me not because of my inability to accept change, but other people’s inability to do so. Or so I thought.
Can I change my mind about that? Someone has really moved my cheese and I’m not sure how to handle that.
I decided on one way this week to handle the changes being thrown at us. Grace. Yes, grace. I know I need a little grace for being short tempered, a little grace for rolling my eyes, and a lot of grace for being not so nice to myself when dealing with my new workplace and “family.”
I hope you give yourself grace when you raise your voice, have to read the same book 25 times because that’s your child’s favorite, and mostly because you are with the same people 24/7 with nothing to do but go to the grocery store. Give yourself a little grace for being like the most of us who don’t like it when someone moves their cheese.
