We Did It!

Greetings Awesome Parents!


Our attendance last week was great! We stepped up and met the district average of 96%. Thank you for taking your child's attendance seriously. This week we will work to beat the district average of 96%. Every classroom that meets the 96% average will meet me in the gym on Friday for a 20 minute dance party. Attendance is extremely important to your child's success. Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life.

A Note from Mrs. Wilson

Hello families!


The kiddos have spent CORE/ Community Time the last couple of weeks focused on problem solving skills. Please ask your child about some the activities that he/she participated in to help them practice these skills. I'm sure they will have a lot to share! This week, we will move on to how to accept no. Helping children understand how and when to accept "no" from both peers and adults is a very important social skill to practice. Below are some resources for parents on how to help children learn to solve problems on their own, as well as how to accept "no". If you have any questions or would like further resources on how to help your child learn social skills, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Mr. Phillips. We would be happy to help.

Counseling Tip from Mr. Phillips

This week’s emotion focus: Sadness

Sadness can be a tricky emotion. Many times, students show sadness in forms of withdrawal or even anger. Talk with your student about letting go of negative emotions and energy, work together as a family to create a process by which feelings can be expressed and either dealt with or let go of! Also, talk with your student about what might be underneath anger…. Often times it might be sadness


“Whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free . . . your true self comes out.” – Tina Turner
