African American History Month is observed each year during the month of February. It's a time to recognize generations of African Americans who contributed to important events in history. The following resources (links) can be used to further enrich your child's knowledge and curiosity:
Car Dismissal: Students who are car riders will remain in classrooms until you arrive at the school. It is imperative that you always have the car tag provided hanging on your car mirror or window in order to help have a smooth dismissal process. If you do not have your car tag, you will need to provide a valid photo ID to receive a new car tag. Car tags will be issued to the registering parent/guardian only. Changes to dismissal can only be accepted in writing, and cannot be accepted over the phone or by email. Thank you for your understanding as we work together to ensure the safety of all students on campus.
Volunteers/Visitors: Per district guidelines, no volunteers or visitors will be allowed on campus at this time. We value our partnership with you and are planning several virtual events during the second semester. We will continue to hold our SAC and PTO meetings via Zoom!
Please join us at our next SAC and PTO meeting on Monday, Feb 8 at 3:00pm

School Support Team Memo to Families
National School Counseling Week is February 1st through February 5th. The aim is to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within US school systems. National School Counseling week, sponsored by the American School Counselors Association, works to highlight the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve success. This year to celebrate NSCW, we are highlighting some of our counselors favorite character traits: Empathy, compassion, determination, gratitude, and kindness. Each day the students will learn about a new trait and teachers will nominate students from their classrooms that exemplify those traits. Those students will receive a special certificate and a treat!
Penny Wars is back! From February 15th through the 26th, we will be collecting coins and dollars to benefit Family Promise of Brevard. Family Promise works to provide stable housing for homeless families in Brevard County. Last year, we raised almost $2000 and our goal this year to beat that number! Each classroom will have a “house”, a coin box that they decorate together and use to store their donations. At the end of Penny Wars, the class in each grade level with the most money raised will win a pizza party and the class with the highest amount raised in the whole school get to silly string Mrs. Gaumond, Mr. Chance, and Mrs. Back! So make sure to check your couch cushions, cars, and pockets for spare change to give to your students to support Family Promise of Brevard! If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Shirley at Shirley.email@example.com.

Conscious Corner with Ms. Carmen
For the month of February we’re going to focus on the Power of Love! It says, see the best in others. When we attribute Positive Intent to a child’s behavior, we are able to stay calm and help children calm. We send children the message that their inner core is good enough. We also send the message that their choice of behavior is not helpful. With that backdrop, most children are willing and motivated to learn a new skill, comply with adult commands or choose a more appropriate behavior.
