Cardinal Family Newsletter

It's A Great Day to Be a Cardinal!

October 28- November 1

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you to the parents who were able to make it in to conferences on Thursday. We will have another round of conferences on November 7th from 4-7. Students brought their reports card home on Friday. The grades you will see are a reflection of your student progress, achievement, and process.Try to have a conversation with your student about how they think they have done. Do they think they have achieved all the points that they could have, did they work their hardest, complete all their assignments, and turn in all their work to the best of their abilities?

How do they feel they are doing as a student?

Preparedness: Do they act responsibly, show up to class with their materials, act as a self-directed learner.

Participation
Does your student listen to directions, participate in class, offer to share ideas, work well with their peers/group members? Do they take risks to help their learning grow?

Work Completion
How hard does your student work. Do they work to achieve the goal- no matter how hard? Do they try to find solutions to problems, or do they rely on others, teachers, parents to solve problems for them. Does your student work to do THEIR best work?


Have a great week and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


Mrs. Hiler

Cyberbullying: What Every Parent Should Know

Bullying incidents are no longer limited to the playground or the locker room Cyberbullying is the latest form of bullying sweeping across middle school and high schools. The recent increase in the number of suicides by kids mercilessly cyberbullied certainly sets off alarm bells.


It is harassment, taunting, or threats that are done via lots of forms of social media. With the click of a button, it can spread very quickly.


What Can I Do As A Parent?

1. Don't assume anything. Don't assume that your child will never participate or be the victim of "those mean kids." Even our sweetest kids get caught up in the moment.

2. Communicate...a lot. Have regular conversations with your child, Talk about examples of bullying and the consequences of the person being bullied.

3. Don't throw your hands up and say "kids will be kids." This suggests to your child that they want the victim to toughen up or that the other child was horsing around. Neither pays attention to feelings.

4. Watch your own social media use. Pay attention to what you are posting on social media. Don't teach your child to be a bully.

5 Set limits. Begin by limiting how much time your child is on social media. Put the electronics away.

6. Check and recheck. Make a contract with your child that you will check their browser history when you feel it is necessary. Be sure to routinely check it. Make your child responsible for NO Cyberbullying.

Thriving Learning Communities

Hopefully you had an opportunity to talk with your children about their survey results and to learning more about their strengths. Below you will find a link where you can take a free survey. It isn't as extensive as what the students took but it is still worth the time to take and to learn about your own strengths.

Final Forms

If you and/or your child haven't had the opportunity to complete your final forms please try to update them as soon as possible.

Charge the Chromebooks!

Please make sure your child gets in the habit of charging their chrome books each evening. It is important that they come to school prepared and the chrome books are as important to class as bringing paper and pencils. They will need their computers to fully participate in instruction in most classes.
