Tip #3-Beyond healthy conversations and journaling, get your child involved in some community work

This can be done on a weekly or monthly basis depending on their schedule.Social groups are is a great way to develop a sense of belonging.It makes a child realize the importance of his existence and the difference he can make in this world.

Go through different communities work together with your child and let him choose the activities he wants to be involved with. This way he will be motivated to do it

Veteran's Day-November 11

Dear Families,

Veteran’s Day is approaching on Wednesday, November 11, 2020!

It is going to look and feel very different this year since we are unable to have an ‘in person’ assembly. However, we are still going to try our best to recognize and honor the Veterans that are in our ESS community.

We are working on a ‘virtual type’ assembly to be able to share with the students and families on 11/11. As part of that, we are looking for pictures or videos of Veterans! If you know someone (family member or friend) who is serving or has served in the military, please send us their picture or a short video (1-2 minutes).

PICTURES: Please take a picture and include a short description (Name, Military branch, Years of service, relationship to ESS student).

VIDEOS: Please take the video in LANDSCAPE mode and have the veteran introduce themself and share what they would like the students to know.

Please attach either picture or video in an email and send to:

Thank you,

The Veterans Day Committee
