Cardinal Family Newsletter

It's a GREAT day to be a Cardinal!

August 20, 2021

Happy Friday!

We just completed our first full week of school and what a great week it was. Students are doing such a great job settling into their routines.

Next week we will enter the month of September. The middle school will be implementing the Social Emotional Learning program Thriving Learning Communities .This program provides in-class lessons focused on your child’s strengths and development of social and emotional learning skills. We are just getting started and have been exploring how our individual strengths can help us feel good about ourselves, strengthen friendships, and reach our goals.

Watch for tips and suggestions every couple of weeks on how you can team up with us as we work together to support the social and academic growth of your child. For example, the next few weeks would be a great time for you to ask your child about their own strengths and how they are is using them each day. Ask your child to teach you some of the “strengths language” they are beginning to learn.

Here are a few great questions to get you started:

What are some of the strengths?

What does optimism mean?

What is “strengths spotting”?

You could also discuss with them how they think their own strengths help them at home and at school.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend.

1. Attend Open House and Parent-Teacher Conferences
