This month's tip is about moodiness. It may be something you're facing. Moody, private, self-conscious...if this sounds like your middle grader, you're not alone. At this age, his body and emotions are changing rapidly. Here are ways to help him cope. Managing moods - physical growth and worries about friends, sports, and schoolwork can cause moodiness. Let your child know you're available to talk. A quiet statement, such as, "I remember what it feels like not to be asked to join a team," can invite him to open up about what's bothering him. Finding privacy - It's natural for your middle grader to want some time to himself. He might close his bedroom door or walk outside to take a phone call, for example. Show him that you respect his growing need for privacy by giving him space. Fitting in - Many middle graders feel self-conscious. Being part of a group of people who share his interests can help your youngster focus on his strengths and feel more confident. Encourage him to participate in at least one activity (basketball team, student government, math club).
The middle school reception office is available to issue N.H. Youth Employment Certificates between the hours of 7:00 am and 3:00 pm. The Career and Technical Center at Kennett High School and the SAU 9 administrative offices also issue these certificates. Please refer to the DOL web-site below, or call the middle school at 447-6364 if you have any questions and to insure you have all the required documents.

This morning KMS Spanish students chatted with students at a technical school in Lima Peru via Skype. The school in Peru is called Senati. The Peruvians were interested in what type of music our students like and what New Hampshire is like while the KMS students asked some great questions about weather, school, and whether or not the Peruvians enjoyed learning English. This was a friend of a friend who is teaching English there and wanted to Skype with a Spanish class in the States. The weather today was mild and cloudy down in Lima.
