Principal's Corner

Spring Fever

Yes, Spring Fever is real! Especially for students in Elementary schools! When spring begins to approach Spring fever begins hitting everyone at Justiss. The weather will begin finally warming up and summer will begin peaking around the corner. Everyone, both students, teachers, and myself will begin feeling a bit like the walls are starting to close in.

So how can you as parents help us combat the frustrations and feelings of Spring Fever as they begin to approach?

  1. Take your child(ren) outside to play, to the park, for a walk in the sunshine when they get home to get fresh air and vitamin D!

  2. Start a garden with your child(ren)!

  3. Spring is a great time to get your child(ren) outside and go for nature walks.

  4. Spring is also a great time to start recycling projects!

Help us combat Spring Fever and embrace the excitement and energy of the warmer weather coming by getting them outside! This will help make our day a little smoother as we transition through Spring Fever and help avoid the frustration and our student’s natural reaction to being stuck inside as

spring is sprung!

Counselor's Connection

Spring has sprung…and what a perfect time to talk about the big idea: “Cooperation.” Working together to do more than you can do alone! Being able to work productively and respectfully with your classmates, coworkers and family members, are such important skills. How do we cooperate with:

A teacher

  • Listen while they teach

  • Try your very best

  • Participate in class discussions and activities

  • Come prepared with your supplies and homework

  • Have a positive attitude and follow the social contract

A family

  • Obey parents

  • Use kind and respectful words

  • Ask before using and put back what you get out

  • Share and take turns

  • Do a fair share of the chores

A team

  • Show up for practice and games

  • Give 100%

  • Encourage teammates

  • Have good sportsmanship

  • Never give up

  • Be a Champion

I would like to encourage you to consider incorporating “cooperation” activities at home that fosters fun, teamwork, and united successes, such as:

  • Board games

  • Scavenger hunts

  • Chores

  • Planning family outings

  • Goal setting

  • Cooking/planning meals

  • Crafting projects

Hang up and hang out with each other and practice taking turns, listening carefully to each other, and having fun! Cooperation is worth it!

Your Counselors,

Mrs. Irwin & Mrs. Little
