Dear Parents, March 6,2020
The students began the Lenten season with our Ash Wednesday Mass last week. Throughout the next 40 days, we will be incorporating various symbols and read Bible stories that emphasize how to live as friends of Jesus and how to grow as a child of God.As a family, you may want to discuss how acts of kindness and friendship can be shown while they are here at school.We are continuing to use of the Zones of Regulation, adding new tools to help students calm down and stay focused. The use of music, breathing techniques, and meditation have been helpful and have been incorporated into our classroom on a regular basis.
This past week,the students worked on their class book for the Young Author’s Faire. The students brainstormed ideas about their five senses.They will then illustrate their ideas and combine it into a poem. We will complete it and submit our book next week and we will send you the details of the Faire as we get the results of the judging!
The Super Kid this Week is Abby.
Rose will go home with Augustine.
The Guesstimation Jar goes to Hera.
