Wintertime and coats

Parents, we are seeing too many kiddos coming to school without warm jackets and coats. Please make sure that your child is sent to school with one. If you are in need, please contact the front office and we will help in any way that we can. We would like to give a huge shout-out to the Sell family who has graciously donated to our new coat supply.

January 2022

Happy New Year! During the month of January, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate courage. We will focus on understanding that fear is one of our feelings, it is okay to feel afraid, and how important it is to choose the right thing even when we are scared. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Courage: to choose what is good, right, and kind even when it is hard or scary.

Think About It

Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:

K-2 Think of someone you know that shows courage. How can you tell that they have courage? Why is it important that they show courage? How might their example help make your courage stronger? What are some strategies that have helped you feel calm even when you’re being asked to be brave?

3-5 Talk with your child about what scared you as you were growing up. How did you overcome those fears and/or show courage in the face of those fears? Talk about a time that you’ve needed to show courage. How did that feel? What did it look like? When have you wished for more courage? Who is your role model or example of courage? Why?
