Elementary Office Update -11/16
Greetings NC Elementary Families!
In a normal year, parenting is a challenge. As we head into our 8th month of the pandemic, parenting young children can feel exponentially more challenging. As a parent myself, I am looking ahead to the upcoming cold months indoors with some trepidation. Parenting writers and pediatricians have shared ideas on how to keep children busy during this strange time as well as ideas for parent self care. I often remind teachers that they can not give from an empty cup. This sentiment also rings very true to parenting. In the resources section below, you will find ideas and articles about these two topics. Please reach out if you need supports or resources.
Our district has quite a few winter jackets and snow pants that have been recently donated. If your family would like winter clothing, please call or email me and I am happy to get them set for winter fun.
Have a wonderful week,
