Anthem School Community,


We hope everyone had a great long weekend. Today we are so happy to have students K-8 back on campus! Please remember to keep your child home if they are not feeling well as we have a low threshold for illness. If your child is positive for COVID-19, lives with anyone with a pending COVID-19 test, or has been directly exposed to anyone with COVID-19, please keep them home and call Mrs. Roets or Nurse Kelly. Please see the chart below for more information. We appreciate your support and understanding.

We have just wrapped up our Quarter One Theme: Am I being Kind and Helpful?


We will now be exploring our Quarter Two Theme: Am I using positive self-talk? Becoming aware of our self-talk is an essential skill. Many studies show how positive self-talk can enhance self-confidence and reduce cognitive anxiety.

How do we help our children to develop helpful, encouraging self-talk? Well, the first step is to become aware of our self-talk. Which is why this week’s motto is:


I pay attention to what I tell myself.


Understanding that our self-talk is a choice and that we determine the quality of the messages we tell ourselves is very empowering. Help your child pay attention to their self-talk by pointing out keywords such as always, never, or should. These words are usually associated with negative self-talk, such as, “I will never understand math” or “I am always messing everything up.”

Once we can recognize our unhelpful self-talk, we can begin to restate our self-talk into messages that are more helpful and encouraging, such as: “I am getting better at math” or “We all make mistakes. I am learning from mine.”

A fun activity to do with your kids is to create a family or personal motto. Having a family motto creates a sense of unity that is comforting, for example, “In our family, we have each other’s backs.” Once you create a personal or family motto, post it somewhere in your home as a positive reminder of what you believe.

“Self-talk is the most powerful form of communication
because it either empowers you or defeats you.”
-Unknown


Let’s help our children be good to themselves!

Be well,
