Field Day

Ms. Davidson will be sending an email with the schedule for Field Day by the end of the week. PTA has purchased class flags for every grade level teacher. Please go by Ms. Davidson's office to pick up your grade level flag to decorate. On Friday, May 27th, we will begin with opening ceremonies in the soccer field. Each class will present their class flag and team name. After the ceremony each class will move to their designated games.

This will be a popular day for parent visits. Many parents have already indicated that they will be bringing lunch for their child that day. The cafeteria has requested an approximate count for sack lunches that day. Therefore, we will send out a form for students to indicate if they will want the cafeteria sack lunch or will bring something from home. Please place those forms in the cafeteria box.

More Information will be sent out soon.

Preparing our students for the 21st century

Social Skill: Caring About Others

Who is a special person you care about? Why do you care about this person?” As children volunteer names and reasons, write them on the blackboard or a large sheet of paper. Explain that:

One of the best gifts you can give people is to let them know that you care about them. When you help people, show concern for them, or say something nice, you show them that you care. When you listen to them, share something, or laugh about something together, you show them that you care. And when you show people that you really care, you can make their day!
