Teaching RESPECT to Preschoolers

Read stories where characters show respect.

Choose books to share with your child and discuss the word and meaning of respect as the story progresses. How did the characters show respect or disrespect? What could the character have done instead? How could he have been more respectful?


Some book titles that you may want to explore include: “Arthur’s Eyes”by M. Brown, “Oliver Button is a Sissy” by Tomie dePaola, “Miss Spider’s Tea Party” by David Kirk or “Quiet Wyatt” by Bill Maynard.

Teach your child about DIFFERENCES

Teach your children about differences. You can discuss how your family members are different and unique from each other by pointing out eye color, hair color, height, and skin tone. Talk about how each of you is “special” in your own way.

Model RESPECTFUL Behavior

Display good manners in your home by using “thank you” and “please” appropriately. Treat all family members with respect, including the preschool children in your life. Mutual respect should be a two-way street. Help your child learn respect by giving him the words you’d like to hear. If your child grabs a toy you can tell him; “When you want something that your brother has, I expect you to ask him if he is finished playing with it.” If your child demands a snack, you can instruct her; “When you are hungry, I’d like to hear, ‘Please mom, when you have time, could you fix a snack for me?”

No Dogs on School Property

Please remember that dogs are not allowed on school property per board policy 7490. While many of us love seeing your furry family member and understand how exciting it can be to have our pets greeting us at dismissal, there are potential risks with having any animal in a busy environment. Some of our students are scared of animals, some are allergic, and some are just learning how to appropriately interact with animals. So for everyone's safety, including our pets', please keep dogs at home during arrival and dismissal times. We appreciate your cooperation!

Halloween Parade Information

You are invited to watch our Halloween Parade of spooky ghosts, scary goblins, and creepy witches. Students will exit the building at 10:30 and walk along the front path highlighted in yellow.


Parents are asked to line the walkway area so our students can walk through and show off their costumes before returning to their classrooms.


Although students will surely be excited to see familiar faces, parents will not be permitted to take their children home directly from the parade. All students must be signed out in the office if leaving. To ensure the continuity of our day, parents will not be invited in the classrooms after the parade ends. Teachers will be having their own individual classroom parties throughout the day. We thank you for your understanding and anticipated cooperation.

SAFETY REMINDERS:


  • Students may not wear any masks.

  • Although costumes may have hand-held items or parts (ie: wand, sword, bag, etc.), we ask that these items be left home for the school parade.

  • Costumes can be worn to school.

  • Parents are not permitted in the building after the parade for safety reasons and to ensure the continuity of instruction.

Te invitamos a ver nuestro Desfile de Halloween de fantasmas espeluznantes, duendes espeluznantes y brujas espeluznantes. Los estudiantes saldrán del edificio a las 10:30 y caminarán por el camino frontal resaltado en amarillo.


Se les pide a los padres que alineen el área de la pasarela para que nuestros estudiantes puedan caminar y mostrar sus disfraces antes de regresar a sus aulas.


Aunque los estudiantes seguramente estarán emocionados de ver caras conocidas, a los padres no se les permitirá llevar a sus hijos a casa directamente desde el desfile. Todos los estudiantes deben cerrar sesión en la oficina si se van. Para asegurar la continuidad de nuestro día, los padres no serán invitados a las aulas después de que termine el desfile. Los maestros tendrán sus propias fiestas individuales en el aula durante todo el día. Le agradecemos su comprensión y cooperación anticipada.


RECORDATORIOS DE SEGURIDAD:


  • Los estudiantes no pueden usar máscaras.

  • Aunque los disfraces pueden tener elementos o piezas de mano (es decir, varita, espada, bolso, etc.), solicitamos que estos elementos se dejen en casa para el desfile escolar.

  • Los disfraces se pueden usar en la escuela.

  • Los padres no están permitidos en el edificio después del desfile por razones de seguridad y para garantizar la continuidad de la instrucción.
