Weekly Update | Oct. 19, 2016


Dear Parents:


As a result of the cultural survey sent at the beginning of the year, one of the celebrations chosen by many families is Halloween. On Monday, October 31st students are invited to wear “orange and black” or to wear a Halloween costume. Students may come to school wearing their costumes or bring a costume that they are able to get into independently at the beginning of the afternoon.


Costumes are to be “non-violent” in nature (no fake blood, evil characters etc.) and any items that would be considered a weapon (gun, sword, laser, etc.) are to be left at home. Students will be involved in a costume parade throughout the school and a celebration in the classrooms.


Morning Kindergarten students are invited to wear their costume in the morning and they will parade through the classes at that time to be a part of our celebration.


Families will also be invited to participate in PUMPKINELLA. This family activity involves interested families buying a pumpkin, carving it into a Jack-O-Lantern with their families at home, and bringing it to school to be put on display. In the past we have had wonderful displays set up in the gym and all classes had an opportunity to walk through the gym to see the family contributions. It was a great success and the families that participated were excited about having the event again.   Watch for more information and begin to plan your family Jack-O-Lantern.

Monthly Virtue Focus | October




“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful..we let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to … goodness it becomes a routine.”

― Joel Osteen,


Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.”

― Oprah Winfrey


So often in a deficit-based culture we look at what we don’t have and what we can’t do. Because there is always room to grow in every way, if we look at this side of life, we will feel defeated. In celebrating what we have and what we and our children CAN do, we feel invigorated and ready to try. Our children will, in all things, observe what we say and do. To a large extent, they copy the models that we set. If they are having trouble with homework, help them to see what they are doing well and then write a note to the teacher about the difficulty, so that the teacher can make a decision about the next right step. Learning is more effective if it is joyful! Do you remember your child’s first steps and how you warmly applauded that wobbly little body, how that spurred your child on to take more steps and how grateful you were that your child had taken them? We need to continue to marvel and be thankful for each learning step that our children take and to be thankful that we live in a place where universal public education is easily within our reach to help our children with each of those steps.


“The soul that gives thanks can find comfort in everything; the soul that complains can find comfort in nothing.”
― Hannah Whitall Smith


“Transform, from a fault-finder and blamer to a solution-finder and appreciator.”
