Parent Email for the Week of September 2, 2019

Our PeaceBuilder character trait for the month of September is “RESPONSIBILITY.”  Please help us reinforce this important attribute at home by making sure students have everything packed up and ready for school in the morning. 

A few helpful tips:

  • Lay out clothes and make lunches the night before. 
  • Have backpack (with completed homework!) next to the front door and add last-minute items in the morning. 
  • Bus tags are a necessity for your child to load the bus after school.  Please remind your child that their bus tag is like having their very own driver license . . . they MUST have it with them at all times.
  • Hang a tag or keychain from your child’s backpack as a reminder for the car line or the bus.  This helps assure little ones they’re going in the right direction after school.
  • Remind your child that it is his/her responsibility to check the office for a forgotten lunch or lunch dropped off by Mom or Dad.  Students will not be notified when the lunch arrives, but parents are always welcome to sign in and deliver the lunch to the classroom or cafeteria.
  • Attendance and tardies are also part of becoming a responsible adult.  Much of a child’s school success starts with attendance!  Missing just 2 days of school a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.
  • And lastly, PRAISE your child for taking responsibility for picking up their room and being prepared for school.  Everyone likes to be commended on a job well-done!

REMINDER:  Monday, September 2nd is Labor Day and there is no school.
