NOTES FROM THE NURSE
Make sure that you to complete the CCISD Self Health Assessment each morning to make sure your child is well enough to attend school. Please keep your child at home if they are not feeling well. If your child needs to stay home, please log on to Skyward Family Access and fill out the Wellness Screening. This will notify the school that your child is staying home, and the school nurse will be calling you to check in. If your child becomes ill at school, you will be called to pick them up. Make sure your phone numbers are correct in Skyward and your emergency contact list is updated. Please make sure to pack an extra change of clothes for your child to keep in their backpack this school year. This comes in handy for spills, slips, muddy puddles, and accidents.
Do you recognize these? Please let Nurse Burke if you see your child's glasses!
We will be donating to the Lion's Club on Nov. 20

Word of the Month-Responsibility
This month we are talking about Responsibility! The dictionary talks about Responsibility in a few ways: duty, accountability, and the independence to make decisions. We are using a slightly different definition at school:
Responsibility: to take action and understand how our choices affect others, ourselves, and the world.
Every day we make choices and take actions. Being responsible means we know how those choices impact all people and things involved! Sometimes we get to choose what we are responsible for, sometimes we earn new privileges through consistent and healthy choices, and sometimes we are responsible for things simply because we are a part of a community (and we all have to do our part!). We will spend time talking about what it means to be responsible for our classroom. We will practice self-control and develop helpful practices. Together, we can take Responsibility for a more kind, generous world!
- You really want a new game, but you need a new pair of shoes. How do you decide between wants and needs so that you can spend your money responsibly? Talk about wants and needs in your life and how you’ve learned to tell the difference!
- What are the responsibilities you have at home? How do people know what they are responsible for? Which responsibilities are you really good at?
- What’s something that you want for our home? Would getting this thing demonstrate Responsibility with our time, money, or energy? If so, how might we earn this special something by showing Responsibility?
Questions You Could Ask
- Why is it important to consider other people when you’re making your decisions
- Who is the most responsible person you know? What makes them responsible?
- What are some things that might get in the way of showing Responsibility? What are some things that might help us practice Responsibility?
- What does Responsibility feel like to each person in your family?
