Introduction to Erdkinder
Our sincere apologies for technical difficulties on May 19th during the Erdkinder Info Session. We wanted to share with you Erdkinder information as your student prepares for next school year. Last week, your students received this information in presentations both in-person and virtually.
We're excited to offer an opportunity for parents to meet our Erdkinder teachers over Zoom on Tuesday, May 25 at 5pm. Join us for a 30-minute conversation as we all gear up for next school year!
Here's the link:

All student art work has been returned to your student's teacher. You can arrange pick up with them or you can just wait until our return to the building in August!
Did you know that your student can check out books through Live Oak Public Library LOPL)with their student number? It is a partnership between SCCPSS and LOPL called the PINES P.L.A.Y. Program. Find out more information at the link below:
What a year it has been! As we all begin our summer, I want to say thank you- for being there for us and for your children as we all navigated this crazy school year together. I cannot wait to welcome our students back to school in August and actually (hopefully) be able to give hugs once again. Rest, relax, and have fun this summer! If you ever need a moment of relaxation, mindfulness, or meditation, check out my website. There are also useful mental health resources and community links available.
I look forward to seeing you back here in August. To our 8th graders, congratulations and best wishes as you embark on the new chapter of your life in high school!

School-Wide Grace & Courtesy Focus
The Language for Identifying/Naming the Qualities of Acceptance from the "Self- Awakened Child" series by Jonathan Wolff:
- When I feel peaceful about things I cannot change and I try to live happily with them, I am acting with Acceptance.
- When I feel peaceful about people I cannot change and I try to live happily with them, I am acting with Acceptance.
