The school year is flying by so quickly. I want to take this opportunity to remind you that there is still much work to be done at school. Many students have begun to have spring fever and it is affecting their lunchtime and bus behavior. I ask that you have conversations with your children at home about proper school conduct. We are trying to instill a "no touch" policy and we need your help to enforce it. We ask that you support us in telling your child that if he or she is being bothered by another student, to go directly to an adult for assistance prior to any form of retaliation. In this way, we can determine the origin of the conflict. Students found acting inappropriately through their words and/or actions will receive a consequence, for their poor choices.
Spend some time over the spring break teaching your children some of the old time favorite games such as hop scotch, box ball, basketball and kickball. Many children are not aware of the rules of these games and that, sometimes, is the catalyst for many tears during recess.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy spring holiday season.
