The motto this week is: I KNOW what I am looking forward to today.

Hello Parents,

The motto in school this week is:

I KNOW what I am looking forward to today.

This motto seems simple enough, but when we take a moment to think about it we may come to the realization that we just don’t know! After all, do you know what you are going to look forward to today?

We asked students what they enjoy most in school, and the common answers are lunch/recess, and/or 3:30. If you think about it, that answer is equivalent to the adult version of TGIF. Yes, we look forward to Friday. But what if we also enjoyed Monday? Isn't that something we want for our children?

This week, help your child develop a habit of optimism by asking them what they are planning on enjoying in school today. After all, our children deserve a great life, but the only one who can truly give that to them is themselves.

As parents, we can certainly help our children develop a more optimistic outlook. One way to start is by putting a sticky note with the word KNOW on it in your car or somewhere where you will see it each morning before your children leave for school. The sticky note will serve as a reminder for you to ask your child what they are looking forward to in school today. Encourage your child to have more than one answer to that question because the more answers they have, the more they will have to look forward to in their day.

We are not given a good life or a bad life.
We are given a life.
It’s up to us to make it good or bad.

-Ward Foley

Parenting is a full-time job and then some! Thank you for all you do to prepare your child for school each day.
