Weekly Update February 28, 2020
Updated: Mar 28
We have had a very busy first week back from Mid-Winter Recess! We hope all of your children enjoyed their time off from school. This week, our students celebrated the 100th day of school. Mrs. Francis' kindergarten students brainstormed and tried to make a list of 100 things they know about farms. They knew a lot! In Mr. D's class, students made collections of 100 objects, put their collections in paper bags, and wrote clues so others could guess what the object was. Mrs. Hull's class did writing about what they want to do by the time they are 100 years old. Next Friday, March 6th, is National Unplugged Day and we encourage all of our families to participate in activities that do not use technology or electricity. In honor of that, we partnered with the Truxton Community Center today for some activities that the children can bring home and do on this day (or any other day). With Community Center volunteers, the students got to make bookmarks and also got to borrow a book from the Community Center Library. They can keep these books for one month and return them to a box in the lobby of the school when they are done with them. As a school, we also did activities where the kids made playdough and a board game. The students should be bringing all of these home today. Please encourage your children to "unplug" by doing these activities with them. Yard Signs We have yard signs available for pick up at the school if you are willing to place a yard sign in front of your house to help raise awareness of the school. Please contact Leaf (email@example.com) if you would like a sign.
Conscious Discipline Quote of the WeekChildren cannot behave differently until we see them differently. If all you are willing to see is a bully, then a bully is all you’ll ever get. If you are willing to see a child who is hurting or lacks social skills, well, then we have something to work with!
