Happy March Cottonwood Families!
Thank you all for working in partnership with the school to make the month of February productive, positive, and engaging for our scholars!
The month of March, Women's History Month, began with our Read Across America Week and an amazing Family Reading Night which celebrates the joys of reading and brings awareness to the importance of reading. We hope to motivate kids to read more. One way to do that is to help your child select a book, magazine, or comic book that they can read for their own enjoyment. Another is by reading with our children and discussing what we read to foster a love of reading. I hope you all enjoyed our staff's great rendition of some of our favorite books.
This month we will be reviewing great women in history throughout our classes. Please take time to talk with your children about some of these great people in history.

For the month of March our school will emphasize the character trait of Attentiveness. Attentiveness can be defined as concentrating on the person or task before me. Some characteristics of Enthusiasm include:
I will look at people when they speak to me.
I will ask questions if I don't understand.
I will sit or stand up straight.
I will not draw attention to myself.
I will not be distracted by others.
We would love to see our students in action demonstrating our character trait! Please e-mail any pictures of your children to Mrs. Niaves (firstname.lastname@example.org) demonstrating attentiveness in school, around the house or the community so that we can showcase their efforts!
