Counselor's Corner

November Newsletter

         The next two months will be incredibly busy, and pass very quickly.  Your children are accomplishing an astonishing amount of learning!  The students have become familiar with one another, comfortable with classroom routines, and are continuing to develop both academic and social skills

     We hear many stories in the media about bullying, which often tend to be sensational and dramatic.  Fortunately, we have not experienced the more severe situations of bullying on the Primary campus.  Sadly, bullying does occur, and begins in the preschool years.  Because we believe that our students have the right to feel safe, secure, accepted, and valued at school, we promote positive character traits that are incompatible with bullying.  November’s Character Trait is KINDNESS.  Generally, we encourage the children to practice ‘thinking of others, showing kindness to your peers, and following the advice of Thumper the Rabbit; “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”

          Research has helped us develop a broad, general overview of what bullying is, who is affected by bullying, and why it is important for adults to get involved in prevention and intervention.  Due to the ages of our students,  we focus on behaviors that the children can easily identify:, acting ‘nice,’ or acting ‘mean’.   The following is a list of the research-based “Top Ten Facts About Bullying” that you may want to explore with your child:

*Bullying is more than just teasing

            *Anyone can be a bully

            *Anyone can be a victim

            *Bullying is not a modern problem

            *Bullying affects everyone

            *Bullying is a serious problem-in and out of the school setting

            *Working together is the best way to find viable solutions

            *A comprehensive plan will produce the best results

            *Children at risk (both of being a bully and being a victim) can be helped

            *Our school, with the help of our parents, is responsible for protecting students

   Please feel free to contact me for more information regarding the topic of bullying.  There are many good sources from which to obtain data and ideas, including, The Bully Free Classroom by Allan Beane, PhD., www.freespirit.com, www.crisisprevention.com, and www.ncpc.org.



School Information

School Start Time

Classes start here at the Primary School promptly at 8:00. Your child will receive a tardy slip if they arrive after 8:10.  The ladies that graciously stand on the sidewalk unloading car riders will come in the building at 8:00.  The cafeteria stops serving breakfast to car riders at 7:45 so if your child is a car rider and needs to eat they must be at school by 7:45.  The teachers begin teaching at 8:00 so your child is missing valuable learning time by coming to school late.  They are also a distraction to the other students when they enter the classroom late.  Please make every effort to have your child here on time every day.  Thank you.

 Box Tops for Education is a GREAT way to help the Primary school earn some extra money.  Each Box Top that you clip off of partipating products and send to the school is worth 10 cents.  It may not seem like much but they add up quickly.  The school redeems the Box Tops and receives a check for the amount. The school uses that money to  purchase items for the school such as playground equipment and computers.  To find out more information about Box Tops for Education and to find a list of participating products please click below.
 

Important Information

Lunch Visits:
Starting September 30, visitors may eat lunch with their kids on Tuesdays and Fridays.
 Please send your child to school in Tennis Shoes on the days that they go to PE.  The teachers are spending every possible minute teaching and are not able to take time out of their busy schedules to allow students to change shoes before and after PE class.  The students are very active in PE and will not be allowed to participate if they are wearing sandals or flip flops.  We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Registration

Primary Registration/Enrollment

  In order to register or enroll your child you will need the following:

Birth Certificate
Social Security Card
Shot Record
Driver's License
Proof of Residence (if address on Driver's License is not correct)
Proof of Income (PK students)
Insurance Card (PK students)

If your child is transferring from another school, be sure to withdraw from that school.


School Safety

Since your child's safety is one of our top priorities, we have added a new set of glass doors to our front entry.  When you enter the building you will be required to show an ID before you will be admitted through this set of glass doors.

Another safety measure that we are enforcing this year deals with transportation changes.  We will no longer accept transportation changes over the telephone.  If your child needs to go home a different way than normal you will need to send a note with your child that includes the date, the transportation change, and your signature.

We will provide your child with a positive school environment while preparing them academically for the future. It is up to us to educate the youth of today for their tomorrow. Our teachers have been preparing for your child’s arrival all summer. They have attended training, worked on projects for their classroom and prepared materials.

This is a wonderful organization that works tirelessly to benefit our staff and students. They always need great parents to help.
