Where the Learning Adventure Begins

August 19, 2022

Wonderful Celina Primary School Parents,

We did it! Our first full week of school was amazing. ABC Bootcamp is going great. We will be focusing on one letter a day for the next 26 days. Also, we started our Mindful Monday social-emotional lessons this week. Students are learning all about their brains and ways to manage strong emotions.

Ms. Juneau, our school counselor, visited each class and led a lesson about her role as a school counselor. All our students met Riley (our bunny puppet). Please read the information below about having Coffee with the Counselor. We aim to have one virtual parent meeting with the counselor each month.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Nancy Alvarez - Principal

Counselor Corner

Happy Friday Bobcat Families!

Well, we have finished our first whole week of the school year. We are so proud of our little Bobcats and all they have learned so quickly. Students not only have to learn academics but they also have to learn the routines and basics of “school life” as well. I have seen them practice waiting in line for lunch, waiting for a turn in class or waiting for a turn to go to the restroom.They have also learned to sit and listen to a story, raise their hand to share, and put their materials back where they belong. It is a lot when you are little but I have seen them improve a little more each day. Please take note of efforts to wait patiently, pick up toys, or listen respectfully at home and praise their efforts.

I also had the opportunity to visit classes this week and introduce myself to students. We read “Rabbit Listened” by Cory Doerrfeld because that is what a counselor does: listen. It is a great book to introduce the importance of calming down when we are upset in order to engage our brain and make good choices. Oh did I mention we are learning about our brains, too? Our Amazing Brain is another excellent book for additional reading at home.

Finally, please keep September 6th, 9:00 AM open for our very first Coffee with the Counselor Zoom meeting. If you need help navigating kindergarten routines, too, this is a great resource. Have an awesome weekend!

Ms. Jeanne’s book picks of the week:


Drop-off Safety

Please, do not let your child out of your vehicle unassisted during drop off. We ask that you please wait until a staff member assists your child out of the car. Drop off begins at 7:25 AM until 7:45 AM. Drop off ends promptly at 7:45 AM so we can begin our school day. If your child arrives after 7:45 AM, please walk your child in to the front office so they may obtain a tardy slip.

Note From Nurse Peery

24 Hour Rule

In an effort to diminish the spread of illness, Celina ISD follows the 24 Hour Rule. Students must be free from fever, diarrhea, and vomiting for 24 hours without medication prior to returning to school. Please understand that these rules are in place to reduce the spread of illness and cut down on student absences.

Please contact Nurse Peery if your child has been diagnosed with the flu, COVID, chicken pox at (469) 742-9104 Ext. 2104 or WendyPeery@celinaisd.com.

Thank you in advance for your support with this.

Medication Administration

As a reminder, any and all medication administered to students while on campus must be provided to Nurse Wendy in the original bottle/container along with written consent from a parent/guardian. We will only accept the district's Medication Authorization Form as written consent for administration of any medication. This form can be found here: https://www.celinaisd.com/wp-documents/Health-Services/Medication_Auth.pdf and can be emailed to Nurse Peery directly at wendypeery@celinaisd.com.
