Happy New Year, Huskies! The hardest thing about returning from a holiday break is getting back into good routines. Setting routines for mornings and evenings - including nutritious meals and an early bedtime helps children cope with the stresses that may arise from returning to school. Routines have many benefits, namely, children feel comfortable and stable in their environment, resulting in more cooperative behavior inside and outside of school. Learning always starts at home and your child's mood affects how well he/she learns. A positive outlook is the best thing you can inspire in your children to keep them performing well at school and when tackling homework. Thank you for partnering with us to make each and every school day a positive experience for our Huskies. Dare to be remarkable!
