A Message from The Head Raptor
We are four weeks out from conferences already. How is it going with reading each night at home? At conferences teachers were able to share how each Raptor is doing as a reader as well as some conversation starter and questions you can use to follow up with them after reading at home. Reading at home every night will make a difference for your child's reading ability. How about a little reading challenge? You could set a goal with your child for how many minutes or books they/you will read in a week. Keep track each night and celebrate with a game or treat when you meet your goal. As you find ways to value reading at home, your child will follow your lead and value reading too.
It is so hard to believe that we are approaching the end of 2022. I hope this has been a good year for you and your family. The holidays can be both a time of joy and stress (the list making, baking and expectations, oh my). One thing that can help kids-and grown ups- during this time of year is to keep as much routine in our lives as possible. However your family celebrates the holidays this year...I hope that you are able to have fun and laugh together.
Happiest of Holidays!
Head Raptor, Heidi Schroderus
Even though the weather is getting much colder, the 4th and 5th Grade Peer Mediators are braving the worst of it to help solve problems with all grade levels during recess. Each mediator went through a special summer training in active listening, empathy, and problem solving to be able to serve the school. That's something to be thankful for all year long!
