CHARACTER TRAIT OF THE MONTH - Creativity

Conversation Starters

  • Xavier is having a hard time coming up with an idea for his Science Fair project when his Dad tells him to get creative. After he tries and tries, Xavier starts to think that he’s not the creative type. What would you tell Xavier if he told you that?
  • Sometimes, when we are being creative, we can get frustrated if things do not go as planned. What strategies can you use if you begin to feel frustrated? How can you help someone else if you notice them getting frustrated?
  • What inspires you as an adult? Share with your child music, art, books, or other media that speaks to you and why.

Let's Keep Everyone Healthy and Our School Open

We are so happy to be able to give parents the choice for in person instruction for their children. Working together we can ensure that schools stay open. We are asking every family to please do the following:

1. Screen your child for symptoms each morning before sending them to school.

2. Keep your child home for at least 3 days if they are not feeling well - sick children should not be at school regardless of the cause of the illness.

3. Keep the lines of communication with the school open - we all want what is best for your child and working together we can accomplish that!
