Weekly Updates from Mrs. K

From the Principal's Office
Next week is Parent Teacher Conference Week! These meetings can be powerful tools in supporting the growth of your child. Please see the tips below for getting the most out of parent teacher conferences.
Touch A Truck is a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types including public service, emergency, utility, construction, transportation, and delivery all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch their favorite vehicles, get behind the wheel, and meet the people who help to build, protect and serve our community.
Play exhibits, games and food will also be part of the day’s entertainment.
A sensory friendly hour will be held from 10am to 11am for families to enjoy a less-crowded, reduced sound from select exhibits and a quiet, respite space with sensory materials available. Volunteers from Family SOUP will be present.
Children 1 and under Free.
Tickets are $5 for children and adults.
You can purchase tickets online or at Playzeum
- What do you know about rabbits? What do you know about turtles? Which one should win if they were to have a race? Have you heard the story about the Tortoise and the Hare? The hare proudly bragged about his speed and knew that he’d win, so he rested a lot and let himself get sidetracked and distracted. The turtle took a slow and steady approach to the race, plodding along at a pace that was right for him to make sure he had stamina and endurance. In the end, it’s the turtle who wins by a hair. What is this story trying to tell us?
- Failure is a part of Perseverance. What does it mean to fail? Can you think of a time when you failed and were not able to reach your goal? What are some ways we can respond to failure that are both positive and negative?
- Share a personal story of Perseverance with your child. What were your challenges? What or who helped you persevere? What tangible steps did you take? What lessons did you learn?
