Emily’s Enthusiastic Information
“Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.” Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas.
Wishing you peace, joy, and all the best this wonderful holiday has to offer. May this incredible time of giving and spending time with family bring you joy that lasts throughout the year.
“Families and communities are also an integral part of character education and social emotional learning. Extending the learning into the home and the community can provide for the development of positive norms and role modeling, reinforcing the skills youth learn, and family involvement in the learning process solidifies those skills.” As our students are preparing to spend the next couple of weeks away from school, and at home, let’s remember to keep making those positive connections with our families. Encourage positive interactions, make positive phone calls, send postcards home to students, and embolden families to take an active role- we are in this together- it takes a village!
Jackies' Friendly FRC Facts
Tuesday is the absolute deadline for Christmas assistance. All kids/families should be referred to me by then, if at all possible - PLEASE. Anyone that wants to help get Christmas gifts out to the various houses, please stop by and let me know!
We had some amazingly generous donations of food come recently! So over the long break, we are able to give out a substantial amount MORE for the Backpack Program. In order to keep it manageable for the little ones to carry, I will split it up and send home on Thursday and Friday. I will notify parents that there will be extra food coming.
