There are three labeled bins located inside the doors of the main entrance. Please feel free to drop off any of the recommended items prior to December 19th.

Second Step Announcement!
Parents, this week your children focused on the second step lesson below. Please take a moment to talk with your children about how they took time to show positive behavior at school.
Here at Keith Elementary School we want to put our empathy into action. This is called showing compassion. When we’re able to understand how someone else is feeling and do something to show we understand, we are showing that person compassion. Listening, saying kind words, and helping are three ways to show compassion. Take a moment now to think about how you can show compassion to someone today. Then find a way to do it during the day.
Our focus for next week is listed below. We will review the following with your children when they return to school on Monday.
Feelings in My Body:
Everyone at Keith Elementary School feels a lot of different feelings. We feel these feelings in our bodies. Some feelings are comfortable, and others are uncomfortable, but all of them are okay! This week, notice what feelings you have. Pay attention to clues in your body and in the situation to help you understand how you feel. Which feelings are comfortable, and which ones are uncomfortable? See if you can name your feelings.
Speak Up: National Research Project for Digital Learning
WLCSD is participating in Speak Up, a national research project and free service to find out information about digital learning. At Keith Elementary School, we hope to use the survey tools to learn what students, educators, and parents have to say about education issues. Please know how much we appreciate your help in completing the parent survey.
· All surveys should take less than 20 min.
· Surveys are multiple choice with a few open ended questions.
· Elementary Student surveys are done as a group; students raise hands and teachers submit the data for the entire class.
· Surveys can be completed any time between now and Jan 31, 2019.
