Dr. Harmer Update

Hello Eagleville Families,

Monday, June 8th and Tuesday, June 9th are our scheduled pick-up days for student materials. The schedule is below. Please read and follow the guidelines carefully. The office staff will be distributing the materials, teachers will not be in attendance. However, the staff will be camping out in a socially distanced manner on June 11th in the Eagleville driveway and bus loop for the annual summer "Wave Goodbye". Information and times for that are below, please bring your Eagleville student(s) so they get a chance to say goodbye to our Eagleville staff. There will be a video 'Wave Goodbye" sent in my last newsletter of the year next week if you can't make it.

*As much as it pains me to say this, please do not bring any gifts to hand to the teachers during this event. Families should remain in their cars. Sorry!

Special 4th Grade Message:

Parents please bring your 4th grader with you to pick-up your materials during your scheduled time on Tuesday, June 9th. The staff have created a surprise keepsake that the student should enjoy, and we will put it in your trunk to proudly display on your lawn.

Methacton School Nurses Newsletter

Please read the informative newsletter from our school nurses.


Social Emotional Learning Packet

Now more that ever, we must prioritize the social and emotional growth of our children. Social Emotional Learning (SEL) includes skills for correctly labeling emotions, recognizing the impact of thoughts and feelings, and understanding how emotions can affect behavior as well as physical health. The focus also includes teaching students how to have concern for others, make responsible decisions, develop healthy relationships, and effectively manage challenging situations. It will be important to teach our children how to set and work towards achieving positive goals, manage time and stress, and show empathy for others. With all of the above in mind, the Methacton elementary school counselors created a fun and colorful SEL packet to help your child practice these skills while home for the summer. Attached you will find an electronic copy. If you would like a hard copy of this packet, it will be available on your pick up day. Please email Michele Vitellli at mvitelli@methacton.org if you would like the hard copy.

School Counselor Corner

Children are taught to socialize by learning to ask questions. A common one they ask is “What is your favorite color?” That’s easy to answer when it comes to the rainbow or your favorite shirt, but what happens when that question is asked about skin color. Diversity is a topic that is addressed with age-appropriate lessons with the counselors each year. While students may be missing some of these lessons this year, please consider adding a family lesson by together watching then discussing the Sesame Street Town Hall Meeting, Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism that will air this Saturday at 10:00 am on CNN. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?fr=yhs-adk-adk_sbnt&hsimp=yhs-adk_sbnt&hspart=adk&p=sesame+street+Coming+Together%3A+Standing+Up+to+Racism#id=1&vid=799b444226c734e7e921fba38b47acb6&action=view
