PK4.1 News week#5

What is happening in pk4.1?

Feelings and families

All About Me Theme is to help children learn about each other and each others' families! The theme helps children to realize that every person is unique and special; every child's thoughts and ideas are important and no one person is more or less important than another!

Plan It

This week we will explore our own families and the people whom we love and who love us. We will also emphasize the importance of each family member and that every child can do things to help out in their families. We will also talk about how we may have some family members that live with us or very close by who we see all the time and those that we may not see as often, but who we still love and care for them.

Conscious Discipline

Parent Coffee

Thursday, September 18thfrom 11:00am-12:00pm in the ES Conference Room

The topic for September’s Elementary School Principal Coffee will focus on connection with children and discipline strategies. These are two topics that can sound disconnected, however research has shown that the better connections in our relationships with our children, the easier it is to work on behavior and discipline. Our PK teachers have begun implementing a new program this year called Conscious Discipline. This program uses what is known about how the brain works, along with adult behaviors and reactions to common child behaviors, to empower adults to change their self-discipline in order to better help children do the same. You can learn more about the program online at We will be watching a training video in English during the coffee and then there will be time for discussion afterwards. For those who do not feel comfortable watching the whole video in English, there will be another discussion group in Spanish at the same time.

We hope you will join us!
