I will be wrapping up our year in art by conducting a summative assessment. We will draw using the skills we've learned this year by using our color families and art techniques. The students will need paper, a black writing tool, and all of their crayons during their art rotation. I am beyond proud of our little artists! Thank you for all your support!!
This month we will be using our voices, musical instruments, and physical movement to review all the concepts we have learned this year! We will do this while exploring each season: Spring, Summer, Winter, and Fall.
I am looking forward to field day! Be on the lookout for more information. The children will be learning how to do relay races and play cornhole! I have loved and enjoyed each one of my students. We have all become a family over this unprecedented year! Thank you for all your support! I wish you and my babies all the best in life
Student Health & Safety
Lets talk about FLU SEASON; the best defense is to VACCINATE! Annual influenza vaccination is the best protection against influenza and is recommended in the United States for all people >6 months. Influenza vaccines reduced complications from illness, pediatric influenza A- associated hospitalizations, and Emergency Department visits.
Also, if your child has turned 4, don't forget to get those vaccines. This will get them ready for KINDERGARTEN 2021-2022!
- Please provide 3 changes of clothes for students daily. Please refer to the district's toileting policy provided by your classroom teacher for more information.
Hello Crockett Cub Family,
We are Mrs. Lopez, your School Counselor and Ms. Gaines, your Social-Emotional Learning Counselor. It is truly a pleasure to support all the children and families at Crockett EES. We actively work to provide our students weekly guidance lessons, individual counseling sessions, and various virtual parent education classes. If your child is in need of any social-emotional support, please fill out the counselor consultation form. The form can be found by clicking the following link:
Our vision is for all of our young learners at Crockett Early Education School to develop fundamental skills; academically, socially and emotionally at an early age so that they can succeed and find their unique and individual passion in life.
Our mission is to support our School District’s youngest learners in reaching their highest potential socially, emotionally and academically. We provide students and families with a counseling program that addresses skills and techniques that foster social, emotional, and academic growth to all children to prepare them for school readiness.
In preparation for a new school year, students will be learning about their own abilities and limitations, generating possible solutions to those limitations, and collaborating with their peers to find solutions to problems. Cooperating creates opportunities for children to teach and learn from one another. By practicing teamwork skills and developing strategies for self-regulation, students will find compatible ways to collaborate while respecting each other's individuality Here are some ways to foster these skills at home:
- Ask your child to think of things that are important to do when working together.
- Include everyone, listen and cooperate, and use kind words.
- Talk with your child about the ways your family cooperates with one another (making
dinner, washing the car, or putting together a puzzle) and discuss how much fun it can
be to work together and how everyone helps to get the job completed.
Tell your child when you notice him or her using teamwork skills and point out how it is helpful
· I saw how carefully you were listening to Grandma explain how to pat the soil down around the plant, and the garden looks great after all your hard work
Mark your calendars!
