A Note from Mr. Moeckel

Concord Families,

The theme of this message is "gratitude." The hustle and bustle of the winter season is upon us. Even so, there has been such a great out pouring of both time and money. Our Helping Hands campaign was a huge success and we are grateful for all those who donated to such a wonderful cause. I would also like to highlight our PTG. There were several parents who donated countless hours to make our Winterfest an event enjoyed by 100s. The Concord community continues to be a special group!

Yours in Education,

Winter Weather Update for Families

As colder weather approaches, now is a good time to remind families and staff how we prepare for potential school closures that can result from snow, ice, or other severe weather events.

In the event of inclement weather, we will decide to close school based on a number of factors, including student safety, bus transportation, road conditions and wind chill temperature. When possible, the decision to close school is made by 10 p.m. the night before. However, if the decision cannot be made by 10 p.m., then a decision will be made between 5 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. the next morning.

If the decision is made to cancel school, all families and staff will receive a phone call, text message and email notification.

Counselor Corner

In Dawn Huebner's book, What To Do When You Worry Too Much, she reminds us to help defeat our anxieties using a variety of proven methods. This week, we will focus on two:

Activity----are you or your student feeling anxious or nervous? Burn up the extra energy and get moving! Go for a walk, go for a jog or simply do jumping jacks or wall push-ups.

Relaxation---if activity hasn't helped, find a way to tone it down. Lay with a warm wash cloth on your eyes, make a cup of hot cocoa and look out the window, or if you are feeling creative you can mindfully color.

Glad to be on Team Concord!
