NEWS FROM OUR SCHOOL COUNSELOR MRS. CALDWELL

Children hear all kinds of messages about the kind of people they should be from friends, family members, neighbors, the media, etc. I love when I am teaching social skills lessons and a student says, “Hey, that’s what my mom said!” and I always reply with something like, “Your mom is right!” The fact is we are all in this together and it takes a village to help our kids grow to their fullest potential.


Children learn character by the values we teach, our words, and even the way we correct them. They see our daily interactions with others and learn what acceptable character is. As adults, we need to be conscious of what we are teaching, purposely or not. Never forget, they are always watching and learning from us.



Hope Week is next week (February 6-10)! Hope Week is all about kindness and inclusion, and our Hope Squad has planned a lot of fun activities for the students at Sand Springs. We would love for as many students to participate as possible! Keep an eye on the Sand-A-Gram or follow @sandspringselem on Instagram for updates/activities.

Message from our School Librarian

The visit from Jennifer A. Nielsen was a huge hit. What an inspiring storyteller! The library has been full of kids trying to get on waiting lists for all of her books. Some kids have talked to me about writing their own books! We have just added a few more copies of her books Resistance, Rescue, and Lines of Courage to our library. These books are great Historical Fiction for kids, but adults can enjoy them too. They make great read alouds for 4th through 6th grades. My kids love to hear stories about where I was and my reaction to different events in history. If you read Jennifer A. Nielsen’s A Night Divided (about the Berlin Wall), you or another family member should tell your kids about when it came down. Stories become real when we know someone who has lived it. If you read Rescue or Words on Fire, you could discuss family stories from World War II. Jennifer A. Nielsen, in her book Words on Fire, said, "For who are we all, if not the product of who we love, what we know, and every wonderful word that we have read?"
