Mrs. Johnson's Journaling

Brrrrrrrr....It's Getting Cold (Sometimes)!

Please remember to send your child to school daily with proper outerwear. Weather permitting, students go outside for recess every day. In winter the temperature and wind chill and weather conditions will be monitored throughout the morning. We do try to allow the children to go outside whenever possible, so please help them to come prepared. Please make sure to put your child's name in their jacket which helps us if the jackets get lost.

Parking & Driving Precautions

Please do not pull into our south parking lot. It is for buses and staff only. It is unsafe to pull into this parking lot to drop off students or pick up students. If you need to drop off a student in the morning our doors open at 7:20 am and students are dropped off in the back car rider line. We lock these doors at 7:45 am and any students that arrives after 7:45 am will need to be dropped off at the front office and checked in as tardy. Students also need to be picked up in the car rider line with their yellow tag with the number assigned to them on it. If you need a new tag, please come by the office and we can make you one.

Lexia Update

This week we had 73 students grow one level in Lexia Core 5! We are so proud of all the growth our students are making.

As always, we are here to help! Please contact us at (479)750-8760 or email us at

Lost and Found

Please have your students check the lost and found if they are missing a jacket, lunchbox, or other item. Also, if you write your child's name on their things it makes it easier to get it back to them.


1) Please wash your child's mask daily. They can put their cloth mask in the bathtub or shower with them to wash and then hang to dry.

2) If your child is tested for coronavirus, please DO NOT send them to school until their test results are back. Please call the school with your child's test results.

3) If you are positive or your family has been exposed to coronavirus, please call the school at 479-750-8760 to let us know and also fill out the online COVID form at The school nurse is happy to help you fill out this form via phone.

4) Remind your child to be sure to wash their hands often, especially before they eat.

How To Encourage A Growth Mindset In Your Child

As parents we want our children to be successful. In order for your child to reach their maximum potential it is important that we encourage a growth mindset. This will help your child stay away from the mindset of “I can’t” and know that “they can”. According to an article I found at titled ”How Parents Can Encourage Mindset In Children”, there are many things that parents can do to help their children develop a growth mindset. The article states that children either have a fixed mindset “thinking they can’t do something” or a “growth mindset” knowing they can do or learn anything. When children have fixed mindsets they often give up on anything they think is hard for them. Children with growth mindsets know that if they struggle with something, if they work hard enough it will get better. There are many different things as parents we can do to encourage a growth mindset.

  • Encourage your children to not give up.

  • Make sure your child knows that their brains are constantly growing and changing.

  • Your child should be praised for learning and growing.

  • Make sure your child knows it's natural to have failures.

  • Use the word “yet” as a motivational word. Letting your child know anything is possible if you work hard enough.
