January 2016 Leader in Me Update

This month we are focusing on Habit 2 - Begin with the End in Mind
Please talk to your children about Habit 2 at home

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

We will continue to keep your informed as we progress through the year.

Important Weather News

We always try to have out children outdoors for recess to enjoy fresh air and physical activity whenever possible. Please send your child to school appropriately dressed for the winter weather with jackets, hats, mittens, and boots. Please also send them with shoes so that they do not have to wet their boots all day in school. Naturally, if it is too cold or windy, we will have indoor recess.
