Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support in completing our 1st Parent Child Journal in a timely manner.

This Saturday, October 15, 2016 is our First Spirit Day of the Year- We are wearing PINK in trying to create awareness and support Breast Cancer Awareness. Hope to see your children in some pink!

Are you prepared for disasters?

Preparing for any disaster is a two-step process which involves having a family emergency plan and a 72 hour survival kit. To help you and your families prepare, we have attached a blank family emergency plan form and guidelines on size, contents and where to procure the 72 hour survival kit

Rites & Ceremonies classes will continue this week. Please make sure you ask your children what class they attended and who their teacher is. As its the beginning of the year we are adjusting and making changes on a weekly basis.

Please help us better track attendance. If you are going to be absent, please email your teacher and inform them and give them the reason why. Please feel free to select the reason from the following list. This will help us a great deal when it comes to tracking attendance on a weekly basis. We thank you for your support!

Positive Youth Development: Youth Assets


The Search Institute has identified building blocks of healthy development—known as Developmental Assets—that help young children grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. Each week we will post an asset from the 40 Developmental Assets. These assets are also posted on the TV monitors in most JKs. Our hope is that you will share these assets with parents, teachers and the extended REC community.

Asset of the Week:

Asset #7:

Community Values Youth | Young person perceives that adults in the community value youth.

⦿Greet youth enthusiastically and comment on something positive about them

⦿Be patient with the youth, do not show signs of being irritated if they make a mistake
