A Message From Mrs. Lopez
Happy Sunday Falcon Families!
As we head into this new week, be on the lookout for report cards to post to Parent Vue on Tuesday @3:00pm. If you need help with your Parent Vue acces, reach out to the front office staff who will be able to help you with your access.
This is also a good time to remind you to be sure that you have access to Class Dojo as well. Class Dojo will allow you to remain in contact with your child's teacher and allow you to communicate last minute changes in dismissal, etc. with your child's teacher. If you need access to Class Dojo, please reach out to your child's teacher.
There are a variety of events coming up in the month of February. Please be on the lookout for announcements and updates.
Together, may we give our children the roots to grow and the wings to fly. Thank you for your partnership and have a wonderful week.
In service with you,
If you arrive at school after 7:30, students will be marked as tardy.
You will need to park in a parking spot and walk your student to the office.
Our staff will continue to do our best to make the car line quick, smooth and safe.
To help us with this process, please:
- pull up all the way
- as much as possible, ensure your child is ready to get out of the car
- as the driver, you MUST remain in the car
If you need to assist your child, please park and walk them across the crosswalk.
Thank you again and we appreciate all your help!
All families: We continue to remind all students of the expected bus behaviors. We would love your assistance in also reminding your children to be respectful, responsible and to show champion behaviors. This will help to ensure all students are safe and have an enjoyable bus ride to and from school.
Parents/Guardians are advised to give medications at home whenever possible. If it is necessary that a medication be given during school hours, the following regulations must be followed:
- Medication must be brought to school in the original container with appropriate label intact. Parent/guardian must bring medication to the school nurse. Medication will be kept in a locked medicine area of the clinic.
- The school nurse must have written instructions from the physician in order to administer prescription medications. Paperwork can be sent in with students if needed.
Flu season is among us so please promote good hand washing at home. Children who are ill and have fevers should be kept at home. They may return to school when fever free for at least 24 hours without use of medication.
Also, be sure to keep the emergency contact phone numbers and information up-to-date so that we can reach you if your child is ill or injured.
How does peer pressure impact bullying behavior?
Peer pressure occurs when a peer group or individual encourages others to change their attitudes, values, or behaviors to conform to those of the influencing group or individual.
Peer pressure can impact bullying behavior both in positive and negative ways. For example, the influence can have negative effects if a peer group’s bullying behavior encourages others to laugh at someone. It can also be negative when the group views other individuals as not worthy to be part of their group. The impact of negative peer pressure can create environments in which individuals are intimidated to speak out on behalf of someone being hurt or harmed.
Peer pressure can also be positive and healthy. For example, when the peer group encourages kind and inclusive behavior, such as inviting others to join them at the lunch table or letting someone know that they care what is happening to them. The action of peers encouraging each other to reach out to those who are struggling can have a positive impact on the group and other individuals who want to speak out against bullying.
