Please Take Care of Your Computer
Can you please remind your students that they need to be taking extra special care of their devices? We have seen an increase in damage to those devices and we are running out of Chromebooks to replace them with. Students will get a device in 2nd grade and it is theirs to use through sixth grade so they need to take really good care of it. We appreciate your help! We know they have gotten more use this year with remote and hybrid learning so just a friendly reminder to help us out.
Thanks- Patrick Franks and Amy Rahne

Part of our school-wide focus on Social Emotional Learning includes the practice of mindfulness. Simply defined, mindfulness is being aware of our thoughts and feelings in the present moment. And because thoughts and feelings impact choices and behaviors, this is something educators and parents are growing passionate about! Incorporating simple practices like mindful breathing is the starting point for helping children with such things as:
- improve self-control and self-regulation skills
- strengthen their resilience and decision making
- increase academic success and boost their enthusiasm for learning
- reduce peer conflict and increase things like empathy, compassion, patience, and generosity.
As part of our continued school wide SEL work, classroom teachers and I will model and teach various mindfulness practices that students can use in school and at home to help them calm big emotions and make wise choices.
To give parents a better picture of how mindfulness can help kids, The Child Mind Institute has put together information on how it works, how it can be used at home and in school, and the role mindfulness can play in treating a variety of mental health issues. Check it out! And please contact Mrs. Edwards if you have any questions about Mindfulness at CCE.

Social Emotional Development-Looking for Red Flags and Supporting Growth
What is social-emotional development and why is it important? How can we support children returning to early childhood programs in the midst of a pandemic? This workshop will help providers recognize social emotional concerns in young children, create activities to help this growth, and consider community support resources. This interactive training is designed to give you practical information you can use.

Building Resilience in Young Children
Resilience describes the handling of stress, trauma, and adversity. We all experience varying levels of challenges in our lives and the way we bounce back from them demonstrates how resilient we can be. We will explore why resilience is important, activities that promote resilience, and how caregivers can build their own capacity for resilience during difficult times.
