Weekly Updates from Mrs. K

From the Principal's Office
The school year is rapidly coming to an end - it seems the closer we get, the faster time flies. Here at school we start to think about all the things our students still need to do and learn and we think, "oh no, we need more time!" But time is marching on and your student is nearing the end of this school year. As the weather warms up and our schedule begins to include more and more end of the year activities, student behavior can escalate. Children are feeling less certain about what to expect in their day and what the future may bring. As excited as we may be to reach milestones, it can be difficult for our students to process this combination of impending change and more unstructered time. I find myself making more and more phone calls home regarding student behavior. If you happen to be on the receiving end of one of those calls, please know our goal is first and foremost to keep you informed regarding your child and, secondly, to partner with you to teach and reinforce expected school behavior. A strong home school partnership yields the most positive outcomes!
