Dear Parents, January 17,2020
You should have received information about our Family History Project in connection with our Catholic Schools Week celebration. We would like each student to be able to share a little bit about their family’s heritage. Please assist your child in completing this project but allow them to do as much as they can on their own, This project is due back to school by January 23rd so we can display them during our special week! Questions? Feel free to email us.
Don’t forget about the Oratorical Fest which takes place on Thursday, January 30th for the entire student body. If you are able to attend, it is quite impressive. Kindergartners have recited their speeches in class for their classmates. We will be selecting four students to participate in the Oratorical Fest. Thanks for the extra practice required for this assignment. If your child is chosen for the all school Oratorical Fest, please practice with your child so that they can feel confident in speaking in front of the student body.We will let you know which students have been selected.
The students will begin learning about the Zones of Regulation. The Zones of Regulation program is a framework to teach self-regulation.The students will be introduced to the different zones and will learn how they can use the zones to describe how they feel. Books are used which describe different feelings that they might have in each zone. Students have begun sharing emotions that they feel. We have discussed the fact that students may feel different emotions at different times and that this is expected and part of being who they are. The zones are Red, Yellow, Green and Blue. More information to come later.
Our Super Kid is Bella.
Rose will go home with Hera.

Last Notes to Parents from your Children:
Remember that I may not always hear you…
Try to understand that I am not ignoring you when you repeat yourself, but I may not like what you are saying.
Help me to accept my consequences...
I may get hurt, but with your love I will get through it.
Remember that it isn’t easy being a child…
And help me to understand that it is twice as hard being an adult.
Remember that I need lots of love…
And So do you.
Thanks for all you do.
Mrs. Foster and Mrs. Halkias
