The students are settling into their new routines and procedures. Even the preschoolers seem to feel comfortable in their new learning environment. The morning drop off appears to be running smoothly as parents are not parking in the lane and/or exiting the cars. Your cooperation is appreciated!
As mentioned at Back to School Night, we are continuing our work in mindfulness and character development. Students will be learning about: fairness, bravery, creativity, kindness, forgiveness, hope and zest. Teachers will be explaining, modeling and emphasizing each trait assigned to the month. The monthly newsletter will share the trait for the given month and provide some activities parents can do to complement our lessons. In addition, our students will be working with yoga instructors fifteen times a year on a short lesson that promotes mindful breathing and movement.
Our second and third graders signed-up for book clubs and we had a tremendous response. Please be patient as we order more books to satisfy our avid readers. If you missed the sign-up, please just email Deb Jimenez who works in the media center.
Thank you for supporting your school. We are off to a great year!
