The Week of June 10th


Dear Laurel Park Families,

In the coming weeks, our students will engage in end of grade testing, performance task project work, and other culminating activities. We hope to maintain a low-stress school environment, even though our students will be involved in these important tasks. To help us maintain a calm and peaceful atmosphere, please help your child prepare for testing days by ensuring they have a restful night's sleep, healthy breakfast, and hugs as they walk out the door. We are proud of the growth our students have demonstrated this school year and we appreciate your constant support.

Social Thinking Update!

In Social Thinking, the 5th grade classes are learning about the power of positivity! We did a great experiment that gave them a connection between our thoughts and our attitude. Half of the class wrote down 3 negative things that happened this weekend or in the past couple days and the other half wrote 3 things that were positive. After they came up with those, I had them rate their day on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being terrible and 10 being fantastic) on the board. The side of the board where students who wrote 3 negative things showed an average of 5s and 4s but the side of the board where students wrote 3 positive things showed an average of 7s and 8s! It was fun to see the difference!
