Happy March is Reading Month!
We are so excited to be engaged in “One Book, One School.” This awesome initiative is a month-long, school-wide celebration of being a community of readers. Last week each family should have received the book, Fenway and Hattie, and a letter explaining the project. If you have any questions, or did not receive the book, please contact your child’s teacher.
Did you know that Trimester Two is ending? Report cards will be viewable next Friday on Skyward. If you are unsure how to view the report card, or would like a paper copy sent home, please contact the office. Later this month, you will have an opportunity to have a conference with your child’s teacher. Conferences will be scheduled directly with the teacher. Conferences are such an important time to strengthen our partnership for your child’s learning! If you haven’t scheduled a conference yet, please do so as soon as possible.
I am so proud of Davisburg students! They continue to amaze me with the growth they are making as learners and leaders. What an awesome opportunity I have to be part of their lives! Thank you for sharing your child with us every day!

The Leader in Me Section: Revisiting Habit 3: Put First Things First
Putting First Things First means to decide what is most important and take care of that task first. Thinking about what needs to be done tomorrow, or by the end of the week can be overwhelming, especially for children. Learning to prioritize can help reduce stress as tasks tend to not “stack up.” Another principle of this habit is work first, then play. An example would be, if your child wants to play video games, but has not completed their homework/chores, they should get the work done first. By Putting First Things First, priorities are accomplished and become a sense of pride.
A powerful way to put first things first is by looking at the big picture of your life, and ensuring that you are spending your time on the things most important to you. Those are the “big rocks.” When you schedule the big rocks first, it will help you not spend too much time on lower priority tasks or activities. If you feel like you don't have enough time to do something important that you want to do, you have to learn how to MAKE time for it, even if that means delaying or eliminating other less important items from your schedule. You can't find more time, but you can always change the way you use the time you already have.
At home, talk about the chores or activities that must be done first. Partner, or team up to get the work done. Then, celebrate completing the priorities and do something fun together. Another idea, work together as a family to create a schedule that includes what is most important, then fill in the rest of what needs to get done around the “big rocks.”
