In November, our focus skill will be on the appropriate expression of feelings: Know How You Feel November. We teach our children that everyone experiences feelings and we help them to identify those feelings. As we often share with our children, the most important thing is how we express and share those feelings appropriately and encourage and support one another. As we enter the month of November, please use our work here at school to continue conversations with your children at home helping them to identify their feelings and express them appropriately. Help them to understand that it's okay to become frustrated, but help them with strategies to manage their frustration; starting with identifying their feelings. There often are feelings hidden behind frustration such as fear, embarrassment, sadness, self-doubt that can lead to frustration. By helping children identify how they are feeling, it helps them to identify the right strategies to effectively manage them.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Sign-ups end Monday at 11:59 pm so please make sure that you've secured your time with your homeroom teacher. Once sign-ups close, any changes/communication will need to be completed with your child's teacher.

Kiwanis/D64 Holiday Food Basket Drive

The Kiwanis Club of Park Ridge is hosting its Annual D64 Holiday Food Basket Drive to help families who could benefit from added support during the holidays. This year we have approximately 150 families in need.

All funds raised go directly back to our families in D64 in the form of a Holiday basket including a Mariano grocery gift card, pie, and holiday ham.

We understand the importance of family tradition and the role it plays in the life of a child. Holiday meals in particular help strengthen family bonds and provide an extra dose of happiness.

Can we count on you to help us bring holiday cheer to the children in our school district this holiday season? The drive will last for only a month, so please join us today. Donations can be made online or by check from 10/20/2022 to 11/20/2022.

CoVid Communicating

This year, instead of sending out an email for CoVid cases, we will be updating a slide on our website. Please bookmark this page if interested in keeping tabs of our current cases and associated homerooms. I'll leave this in my weekly updates as well, but I'll gradually move this towards the bottom of the reading material.
