Notes from the office
Happy Mother's Day to all of our Young Yellowjacket Moms! Thank you for another great week! Please click the link above and complete the form. We need all students returning to Young in the fall of 2022 to have a form completed.
The BYE Read-A-Thon was a hit! Students enjoyed reading at school in the campfire area as well as the "cafe". It is the responsibility of each student to honestly record their reading minutes and bring the reading log back with parent/guardian signatures along with a sponsor sheet and money by May 13th.
Talent ShowDon't forget! Friday is the last day to turn in your talent show entries! Several lucky students will be chosen to perform live! ENTER BY EMAILING YOUR VIDEO TRYOUT TO MRS. LOW firstname.lastname@example.org (or share it with her through Google Drive). Students who are not chosen to perform live will have all or part of their videos shared during the talent show. EVEN THOSE WHO WANT TO PERFORM LIVE STILL NEED TO TURN IN A VIDEO.
Tips from the Counselor- Teaching Children about Diversity
Our world is becoming increasingly more diverse. However, even though the world is more diverse, racism and intolerance still exist. Here are some tips for teaching your child about diversity.
Practice what you Preach
Children are more likely to treat others with respect when they see you practicing tolerance and accepting others for who they are.
Discuss Tolerance and Diversity Honestly
Everyone is different! It is important that children accept others for who they are instead of pretending differences don’t exist.
Expose Kids to Diversity-
Have your child participate in activities or playdates with children from diverse backgrounds.
Correct Racial and Cultural Insensitivity
When your child says something that is offensive it is important to correct them and explain why it’s unacceptable to speak negatively about people because they are different.
Help Kids Embrace their Own Culture
When a child accepts who they are and has a positive self esteem, they are less likely to see people who are different as threats.
Read Books & Watch Movies about Diversity and Tolerance
Complete Diversity and Tolerance Activities
For example eating diverse foods, attending events/festivals that celebrate different ethnic groups, and visiting history museums
