7 Habits at Home: Habit 6 - SYNERGIZE!

Synergize is achieved when two or more people work together to create a better solution than either would have thought of alone. It’s not your way or my way, but a better way. Think of 1+1=3 (or more). How is that possible? Well, 1 person + another person=2 ideas + many, many more that neither of them would have thought of alone. It’s taking good ideas and making them better by working together.


Synergize is a great tool for families. Habit 6 teaches students to:

  1. Express and present information and ideas clearly in oral, visual, and written forms.
  2. Use their own unique talents and abilities to the fullest; value others’ talents and abilities.
  3. Cultivate the ability to inspire, motivate, and draw out the best in others.
  4. Communicate and work as a team in a multicultural and interdependent world.
  5. Show initiative and entrepreneurialism.

Nurse Notes

Dear Lone Star Families,

I hope everyone has defrosted from Snovid 21( wish I knew who came up with that clever name) without many busted pipes or dead plants. I pray for the families of lost people and pets from this Texas tragedy. Please reach out to LSE clinic if your home has have been severely affected. We may know of some resources that could help.

MISD and especially LSE have very low numbers of students/staff out on Covid quarantine this week. Last week many of us were huddling around fireplaces in the dark playing Uno and trying to figure out when electricity would return. We read actual paper books and got more sleep. In the coming weeks, we can continue to boost our immunity with the healthy practice of adequate sleep.

Turning off blue light emitting devices early enough will keep our kid's circadian rhythm in balance. Starting and maintaining a regular bedtime routine will help our kids to relax and sleep. The routine is best if includes a low sugar bedtime snack, bathe/ brush, story/ song, and rocking, cuddling or back massage. Nine to twelve hours of sleep a night is vital for our kid's health. This will be more of a challenge as we get geared up for spring sports practices and daylight savings time.

Please check out sleep info below and clinic web page with links to MISD free Covid testing info and other Covid info.

Weekly COVID Positive Case Notification (February 22-26)

Dear Lone Star Elementary Parents and Staff,


This week, we did not receive any positive notification of COVID-19 for students or staff within our building


There is no concern with close contact at this time. A close contact is defined as someone within 6 feet of the individual for 15 minutes or longer without protective face coverings or someone who was directly exposed to infectious secretions. We feel it is our responsibility to keep our parents and staff informed as much as possible during this time. Disinfecting of the building continues to happen on a nightly basis. Teachers and staff are diligently cleaning commonly touched surfaces throughout the day according to TEA Guidelines.


We are taking every step possible to stop the spread to others. If you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, we strongly encourage you to consult with your health care provider and communicate with your campus nurse. We will continue to monitor the situation and report required information to the Montgomery County Health Department.


Sincerely,

Lone Star Elementary Administration
