Hermann Elementary Bearcat Bulletin

Learn. Lead. Grow. Succeed. Together!

February 2, 2018

Mr. Groundhog saw his shadow so that means we are in for six more weeks of winter weather! It sure feels like winter out there! Most of us at HES are ready for some warmer, sunny weather! We've recently celebrated our 100th day of school. Think of all of the learning your child has done already in 100 days! I am excited to see what the next 70 days will bring here at HES!

Important Info.

A note from Title One

February is all about friendship and kindness at Hermann Elementary. While these traits make our relationships stronger, did you know they also make us stronger readers? Help your child’s reading grow this month by encouraging strong friendships and acts of kindness. Here are a few suggestions:

  • organize a dinner with family friends

  • identify admirable traits in your family members and friends (draw a picture or write them a letter)

  • make a list of acts of kindness and challenge your family to complete one act each week

  • look for examples of friendship and kindness in books you and your child read together (Do you know a character that would make a great friend? Why?)

Research shows that while a child’s temperament and early experiences make it easier for their early learning, the impact of positive experiences make it easier for him or her to achieve positive outcomes. Please join us in helping make February a positive and rewarding month for your child.
