7 Habits at Home: Habit 5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood: No Two People See, Think, or Experience the World the Same Way

Family Activity: List as many words as you can in 30 seconds related to the word “family.” The goal is for everyone in your family to list as many of the same words as possible. You get one point for each word every member of your family has in common, but you can’t discuss the word or share your answers until time is up. If there are family members who can’t write, have them team up with a parent.

  • How many points did you get?
  • Why do you think you got the score you did?
  • Repeat the activity using the word “love.”
  • How many points did you get this round?
  • Was your score higher?
  • Why is it difficult to get a high score?

Nurse Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

Our 2021 personal goals may seem daunting by now. The pandemic pounds that I resolved against last month are still muffin topping my middle. "My numbers" that American Heart Association talks about as prevention of heart disease and stroke are creeping up. Blood Pressure, Total Cholesterol, Blood Sugar and BMI (Body Mass Index) are the important numbers. Knowing these indicators is the first step to doing something positive about them.

So, time to up my game. Finding out or remembering what works for us is needed to push past our January resolutions. Finding our "why", setting clear and attainable objectives , breaking these into smaller steps, connecting with others for support and setting rewards for ourselves when we take the steps are all things that can help us. A little motivation and a lot of accountability are needed for me now. My motivation is how much I really do not want to take routine medication if it be can prevented. Sherri Johnson and I have decided to be each other's accountability partners. She has the perfect balance of grace and truth that I need. Please check out link below.

Weekly COVID Positive Case Notification (February 1-5)

Dear Lone Star Elementary Parents and Staff,


This week, we did not receive any positive notification of COVID-19 for students or staff within our building


There is no concern with close contact at this time. A close contact is defined as someone within 6 feet of the individual for 15 minutes or longer without protective face coverings or someone who was directly exposed to infectious secretions. We feel it is our responsibility to keep our parents and staff informed as much as possible during this time. Disinfecting of the building continues to happen on a nightly basis. Teachers and staff are diligently cleaning commonly touched surfaces throughout the day according to TEA Guidelines.


We are taking every step possible to stop the spread to others. If you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, we strongly encourage you to consult with your health care provider and communicate with your campus nurse. We will continue to monitor the situation and report required information to the Montgomery County Health Department.


Sincerely,

Lone Star Elementary Administration
