Working Together for School Success
Did you know?
Conversations About School
- "Let's see what you brought home." - Look at completed work to find out what your youngster is learning and how they are doing. You can make comments about their work, ask questions, respond to notes from teachers, and sign weekly folders.
- "Show me what you have for homework." - It is your child's job to do their homework, but you play a role too. Make sure they know what they are supposed to do by having them explain the assignments to you. After they finish their homework, glance over the work so see that it's complete.
- "Describe a book you enjoyed today." - This gives you an idea of what your youngster prefers to read. Then build a daily reading habit by asking what they would like to read tonight. Encourage their reading and listening skills by reading aloud to them and letting them read to you.
- "Tell me what you learned that you'd like to know more about. " - Use your child's interests as talking points for activities to share. If they like math, you might hunt for math games/activities together. If they like animals, make a trip to the library to research animals, or maybe even visit a zoo.
- What's the coolest thing that happened today? What wasn't so cool?
- Pretend you are the teacher. How would you describe your day?
- What made you laugh?
- What was the most creative thing you did?
- How were you kind or helpful today? How was someone kind or helpful to you?
- What habit are you talking about?
Please do not send your child to school with any items such as hand sanitizer, chapstick, cough drops, lotion, etc. If you have items that your child needs to use due to a medical illness, please communicate with Nurse Wood. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact her in the front office.
Also, as per Onslow County Schools Board Policy (4230.5), students with a fever of 100* or greater, with vomiting, or with diarrhea will be sent home and may not return until they are free of symptoms for 24 hours (without medication) before they return to school.
In addition, head checks will be conducted at school. If a student is sent home with head lice, they cannot return to school or ride the bus until they are rechecked at the school office.
These policies are in place to help prevent viruses from spreading.
Leader In Me Update
During the month of February we are working on Habit 4: Think Win-Win. Students recognize they are problem solvers. They can calmly work out an answer when an issue comes up with another person. They can balance the courage for getting what they want while considering the needs of others. Students recognize the importance of being respectful of everyone’s wishes as they create new solutions to solve the problem. Everyone can win!
