Note From the Principal
Thank YOU for your generosity throughout the White River Fundraiser. Students will be participating in the FUN RUN Tuesday, 9/7 during related arts scheduled time. Students will run/walk on the soccer field and enjoy a popsicle treat after the event.
This is the FINAL weekend for donations!! We have raised $17,900 so far. Our ultimate goal is $25,000 but we would be over the moon for our PTO to reach $20,000. I know the students are excited to duct tape me to the wall when we reach $20,000! :) If you have not already done so, consider sharing the donation link with family and friends.
Funds raised go directly to our staff and students to enhance learning and provide free PTO events. We are truly grateful for everyone’s support during this time.
Have a fabulous Labor Day weekend!

News From Our Student Services Team
Be intentional and attuned
You can nurture your child's mental health by paying close attention to their verbal and nonverbal cues. This helps identify when your child needs support or when they need someone to talk with.
Being attuned to your child means you are consciously aware of your child's nonverbal physical and emotional needs, and respond empathically to meet those needs - children develop a secure foundation from which their mental health can flourish. Children learn best when they feel safe, so teaching them how to identify their feelings will go further if they are safe to express those very feelings. One way to do this is to name and normalize feelings for your child as well as provide space to talk about feelings a child may not completely understand. For example, "It looks like you might be feeling frustrated about what I asked you to do, let's talk about that."
If you would like additional support on how to nurture your child’s mental health at home, please reach out to one of our Student Support Team members Julie Williams, Kaley Billick, or Megan Thomas.
