Principal's Corner

Greetings Campfield Families,


It's hard to believe it's May. We are so very proud of our students as we have adjusted to 4-days of hybrid learning. Our students are thriving both virtually and and in school. We wish you continued success for the remainder of the school year.


Sincerely,

Ms. Workmeister,

Principal

SEL Corner

Hi Campfield Families: Let's talk about helping children cope with death. According to a Healing Grief article I read, a critical factor in how much or to what extent children are affected by loss is the support these children receive from their community: parents, siblings, extended family, and friends. It is important for children to be given the opportunity to experience and express their feelings of grief, such as sadness, anger, relief, confusion, etc. Check out this link Helping Children Cope With Grief | Child Mind Institute for some tips to use at home.

Hello Campfield Parents From Your School Counselor!

Hello Campfield Parents From Your School Counselor!

It’s Ms. Galvin, and I am reaching out to say that I continue to LOVE connecting with students in pre-k and kindergarten class meetings! We continue to “check-in” with each other and talk about our feelings, sing social-emotional learning songs, listen to and discuss various readings on “mindfulness” and other topics. I look forward to my weekly SEL time with each class! Your children have given me SO much love this school year...it has been truly wonderful getting to know all of them! In our kindergarten classrooms, we have discussed personal safety for a few weeks, including topics about “stranger danger” and “safe & unsafe” touches. The students loved this and were really chatting about ways to keep themselves safe It was very insightful to have these important lessons and discussions with them! In the pre-kindergarten classrooms, we continue to talk about feelings, kindness, and “calm down” strategies.

Summer is almost here! Check out this great link for parent & child summer activities… https://www.educationworld.com/a_curr/profdev073.shtml
