Long Elementary School
A Note From Dr. Phillips and Dr. Mach
We have had a great start of the school year! Students have been working hard getting into the routines in and around school, digging into their learning, and continuing to build relationships. If you are looking for ways to continue to support your student(s), here are just a few ideas:
- Ask them about particular questions about their day (you can use your teacher's weekly communication to ask questions about their learning focus in each subject)
- Discuss peer relationships - Are they making new friends, How might they be solving problems
- Talk to them about the school-wide expectations.
- Ask them about our core values at Long

On Wednesday, September 11-15, we will be having our annual CAPP (Child Abuse Prevention Program) lesson. Presenters will be here from the Jewish Family Services to teach safe and non-threatening lessons to students about body safety, the warning signs of child abuse and safe internet skills, using developmentally-appropriate and empowering activities. For more information on specific objectives, you can click HERE. If you wish for your child NOT to participate, there will be an “Opt Out Form” sent home the week before the presentation. If you have any further questions, please contact school counselors, Mrs. Maddock or Mrs. Beuckman.

Welcome back to the 23-24 school year! We are excited to work with your student(s) again. This year we started off our counseling lessons talking about I Care Language and Timely Tools. This is a peaceful way to use our words to solve small problems. There are 4 steps to I Care Language:
Say the person’s name John,
Say how you feel I feel sad
Say why you feel that way because you took the ball from me
Say what you want them to do I want you to give it back.
If the students disagree as to whose ball it is, then they can pick a Timely Tool, which is a game of chance, to solve the problem. Some Timely Tools include:
Rock, Paper, Scissors
Pick a number
Giant, Wizard, Elf
Spin the pencil
Flip a coin
Bubble gum, bubble gum in a dish
Please ask your student(s) about this and practice at home! As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your student(s) academic, social, emotional development, please reach out. We would be happy to help in any way that we can.
