October Fun Continues!
Principal Newsletter #7: 2021- 2022 School Year
Thank you to everyone who came to the Bel Aire campus last week for our Family Fall Festival. It was great to see families talking and kids playing. It almost felt kind of normal. Also, thank you Chenin Malloy and Ingrid LeClair for organizing!
Another huge shout out goes to PTA Book Fair Chairs, Michele Barnowski and Morgan Greenberg. Students had a blast at the book fair...Kids like to shop too!
The return of rain brought a BIG energy to campus today. We try to keep students indoors during rainy recess times, but please send your kiddos with rain jackets and warm clothes so that they stay healthy.

This event is open to the public.
Our kids are the smartest on record, but also the loneliest, most stressed, risk averse, and depressed. It’s why we must rethink our parenting so they can thrive in an anxious, uncertain world. The good news is that thrivers are made, not born. In this thought provoking session, you’ll learn seven traits that science says matter most in happiness and success (even more than IQ and grades) and help kids thrive both now and later. You’ll learn how to help your child cope with everyday frustrations as well as bigger challenges, solve problems and develop resourcefulness, bounce-back from failure, develop an optimistic spirit, and recognize their unique passion to increase authentic confidence. This session offers hands-on tools to raise successful, self-reliant, and less pressured kids who thrive in school and life.
