Lost and Found

We will have tables set up near the front lobby during Conference Nights with lost and found items. This year we seem to have an increase in items that are lost and never found. After conferences, we will be donating all items that remain to a local charity.

PBIS for Parents - At home- Be Responsible

Who couldn’t use a little help around the house? Research indicates that children who have chores have higher self-esteem, are more responsible, and are better able to deal with frustration and delay gratification, all of which contribute to greater success in school. Chores are a great way to teach those life-skills they will need as adults. In addition to being responsible for their schoolwork and materials, 5th and 6th grade students can also be responsible for their own equipment or items needed for extracurricular activities.

A couple of tips for kids doing chores! 1. Don’t forget to teach your child HOW to do the task! “Go clean your room” isn’t going to work! Most kids will have no idea what that means or how to begin that task. You may have to do it with them the first couple of times. You may have to make them a list. 2. Giving them a reasonable deadline works well! “You need to have the dishes dried and put away, and the trash taken out before you go to bed tonight.”

Here are some suggestions for age-appropriate chores for all ages. Have a child who is reluctant to do chores? Here are some tips that might help you! You can tie completion of chores to a reward if you’d like, or just make it part of the expected family responsibilities. Either way, your child is going to learning valuable life lessons! Next week, we will look at how to “Be Safe” at home and in the community.


The Joseph-Beth Book Fair is Coming Soon to E.H. Greene

OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 3

in the Greene School Media Center


We’re excited about our upcoming Book Fair. There will be hundreds of books available for the students to purchase. Prices will range from $2.99 to about $25.00, with the average price of a book being $6.00 or $7.00.


There will be something for all ages, so perhaps plan to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Teachers will also have Wish Lists if you choose to buy a gift for your child’s classroom.


The first day of the Fair is Thursday, October 26 beginning at 3:00 and the final day is Friday November 3 ending at 12:00. It will be open each weekday from 7:45 am -3 PM, and will also be open during ALL conferences times.


Your child will visit the Book Fair during their regularly scheduled Multimedia Exploration class. Those not in that class are encouraged to visit the book fair independently any time during the week by getting a pass from their teacher.


Conference time is an excellent time to come with your child to shop at our Book Fair. We will be open during the evening conferences on Thursday, October 26 and Thursday, November 2 until 8 PM. We will also be open on Conference Day, Friday, October 27. So . . . be sure to stop by the Media Center. We’ll be looking for you!

Additionally, we will be collecting loose change (or dollar bills) to help buy new books for the Operation Give Back library in Blue Ash. You can go to www.ogiveback.com to learn more about that organization. There will be a jar at the Fair in which to donate your loose change (or dollar bills). Our goal is to donate $100 worth of new books to OGB.
