Hello Kaler Families, 

Between the storm and Halloween, it has been a very interesting week. Last month, staff  had professional development on Growth Mindset. Ask your child if they can describe this concept to you. The websitehttps://www.steampoweredfamily.com/brains/teaching-growth-mindset/ has a strong introduction for inspiring a positive growth mindset at home. 

Some procedure/safety reminders: 
  • School begins at 9:05 am (I am reminded daily as I can’t get 9:00 am out of my head). That said… any students arriving past9:05 needing a hall pass will not be able to order a lunch through the office unless you have called in advanced explaining you will be arriving late due to an appointment ( a doctor’s note will be required).
  • In order to ensure we convey end of day changes to teachers and students in a timely fashion, you will need to call the office BEFORE 2:00 pm. Written notes to the teacher in the morning are most effective. 
  • Please be mindful of correct parking spots. Do not park directly under a sign that says no parking or handicap parking, if you do not have a sticker indicating need. Further, being patient and kind with fellow travelers and walkers will go along way. Shut cars off while unloading and loading your kiddos. 
  • If students are riding bikes to school, they should have helmets for their brains and locks to secure their bikes. We have older students who come by and I’d hate for one to get stolen. 
  • Weather is turning colder, PLEASE label all outwear… all those black or pink snow pants and boots all look a like.
  • If your child’s backpack can not hold winter gear or if you just need a new one, please let me know. We have LOTS of new ones for our school friends.
