Counselor's Corner

January Counselor’s Web note

     Hope your Holidays were great!  We will be getting ‘back in the groove,’ by focusing on building reading skills, learning new math concepts, and beginning an intense focus on writing.  There are many things parents can do at home, to enhance their child’s learning.  For instance:

LEARNING PARTIES- Resources for Educators suggests that Birthday Parties could be a perfect place for fun, learning activities.  For instance, the party could be held at an education venue (a planetarium, zoo, or museum).  Cakes or cupcakes could carry the theme, and each child could participate in themed crafts activities that help them learn.  For instance, a pirate themed party could have a scavenger hunt, in which the children have to follow a numbered map, complete a fill-in-the-blank puzzle, or spell pirate related words.  They may have to decorate a paper parrot, or dress like a pirate.

MATH GAMES-Math is everywhere.  Have fun with your child doing these kid-oriented activities:

            *Patterns-Can your child find patterns in your home?  How may green and red strips are on the couch fabric?  What kind of pattern is seen on the calendar?  Does your silverware drawer have a pattern of utensil-if not, have them make one.

            *Measurements-Let your child help measure cooking liquids and dry goods.  When it rains, let him catch the drops in a glass….then use a measurer to see how many inches fell.  On a car trip, have your child calculate how many miles they have traveled versus how many more they have to go.

            *Fractions- Let your child make a family snack by giving them a recipe with fractions; take a slice of bread, covering 1/2 with peanut butter and ½ with jelly.  Play the game “Fraction 21.”  Use a marker to turn the 2 into ½, the 3 into 1/3 etc. on the playing cards from an old deck.  Take turns drawing cards from the deck, and add then together after each turn.  Whoever comes closest to 1, without going over, wins the hand.

MEASURE ACTS OF KINDNESS-How can your child make his little brother smile, her lonely classmate feel special, or his teacher appreciated?  By being KIND!  Try this idea at home:

            *Put a jar and a notepad on the kitchen counter.  Each time a family member does an act of kindness (shares a toy without having to be asked to do so, or picks up his sister’s bike from the driveway), record it on a note and drop it in the jar.  How many are there at the end of the week?  Who had the most ‘acts of kindness?’



School Information

 Primary School

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.

If your child is absent from school, please send a written note with your child when they return or fill out the absence form in your child's folder.  Thank you for your cooperation.


 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.

Note from the Principal

 
Welcome to the Wills Point Primary School! We have the pleasure of educating the Early Childhood population of Wills Point ISD. We serve grades PPCD, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First Grade. We average around 475 students on our campus. We have an exciting year of new adventures planned for your child. Regardless of the grade level, you will be amazed at all the things your child will learn this year.  
Our Primary campus has met the standards for AYP. This is because of our staff’s commitment to education. We take our job very seriously. 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. The success of your child will not be possible without your help. We look forward to a rewarding partnership between you, your family and our staff. Please look for information about our PTO. This is a wonderful organization that works tirelessly to benefit our staff and students. They always need great parents to help.
If you have not visited our campus, please do so. We are very proud of our students and their accomplishments. We look forward to a great school year. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Thank you for sharing your child with us.
Sincerely,
Deborah K. Deen
