Mrs. Mills' March Moments
Family Newsletter for March 2018
Elementary School Essentials
Elementary school education lays the foundation for the future of our students. At Chandler Creek Elementary, we are very intentional about providing social and emotional growth for children. Daily practice with conversation, using manners, and being a respectful part of a school community are essential in the work we do. Where we believe that every child should have full access to quality academic instruction, we also know that social and emotional lessons are integral to becoming citizens who can give back to our world.
This year, soft skills we have highlighted include handshakes, eye contact, saying
"Please" and "Thank You", hygiene, and taking turns. We have met as class communities for morning meeting time and problem solving lessons. To walk our halls each morning, you will observe each of the above and more as we launch every school day with a purpose to be focused and prepared for learning.
Now, as we enter the month of March, we will turn our message to body language. Standing tall, being present in the moment, and listening and responding in respectful ways are all part of our body language focus.
It is our vision to help the students of the Greer, South Carolina to be healthy, well adjusted, and prepared both academically and in mindset for the future ahead of them. Our work is ongoing and we do encourage parents, guardians, mentors and all stakeholders to help us reinforce these necessary and essentials skills to grow college and career ready students.
Thank you for your support.
Students come from many backgrounds at CCE. Each student is unique, valued and empowered to be the best they can be for now and the future. We are a TEAM.
Working as a team to be "Champion" students. Taking turns and sharing information helps grow community and a sense of belonging.
Welcoming our friends to school. Using our soft skills to make eye contact and greet each other with a respectful handshake.
