Dear Riebli Families,


Ever feel like you're living on a different planet?! Especially these days. It's hard to know where reality stops, where fears start, and all the emotions in between. This week, as excitement and anxiety of the school starting ramps up, I want to encourage you to take some time to connect with your child. Like REALLY connect. I'm talking no distractions, eye contact, the good stuff. BE PRESENT!!!


Take a quick break from the routine, do something silly or spontaneous, maybe even surprise your child with something out of the ordinary: a drive to the beach, a long walk in nature, camping in the backyard on a school night, a family movie night, eating dinner outside, just anything to spice it up. With all the rigor of school, the numerous Zoom meetings and online expectations that are coming, it's important that your child FEELS human connection to you and other family members. If your family is safely enjoying the company of other close relatives or friends, make sure you facilitate play and exercise whenever possible.


Please keep in mind that if something isn't working for your child, your teachers are ready to listen and PIVOT with you as needed. Although we are intentional and strategic in our teaching, we're learning as we go also and we aren't afraid to make changes when needed. Your feedback is valued and appreciated.


Have a great rest of your week, Panther families!


From our planet to yours,

XOXO,

Mrs. Todd
