In honor of the amazing Teachers and Staff at Wade King
Elementary we will be celebrating Remember
to Say It! Day. What is Remember To Say It! Day you ask?... It’s the day we
have designated (the 10th of each month) to remember to say those
kind things you have thought about but for some reason have not said them out
loud or written them on paper.
We always think, 'that was really
wonderful', and 'I sure appreciate what that person did', but we often don't
remember/ over think/ or just plain let it pass – and don’t tell that person
the appreciation we have. Thursday will be the day to pull out a pen &
paper, send an email, sing a song, write a card, however you want to Remember
To Say It - it's your day… To say it how you want to Say It.
This Thursday is our first of the
year to Remember To Say It! BIG or small it's just the day to say it.
We are incredibly lucky to have the phenomenal Teachers and
Staff that work with our children and in turn work with us every day. Take this
opportunity to write it down. Encourage your children to also express their
appreciation for the people they see daily, weekly, and throughout the year.
October 10th – Remember To Say It!
This Wednesday morning, October 2, at 8:35 we’re hosting our first IB Home Connection meeting of the year in the cafeteria. Primary Years Program (PYP) schools believe that the connection between families and schools should be strong, informative and useful. To that end it is the great pleasure of the King PTA to sponsor IB Home Connection, (The event formerly know as Coffee, Tea, and PYP) seven times this year. The format is informal, there is always tasty food, and the topics come from questions that have arisen. The discussions begin with a short presentation and then transforms into an arena to share ideas and experiences that support inquiry and develop a person who exemplifies the Learner Profile.Next Wednesday, join PTA members and our IB Coordinator, Ellen Alquist, to inquire into Setting up a Workspace and Supporting Homework.
