This Week

November 30 - December 4

Posted by Catherine Bartlett on November 21, 2015 at 12:25 AM


Holiday Happenings - Staff, remember that schedule changes, parties, special events are sometimes difficult for kids to manage. They can cause anxiety in everyone. You can relate if you have ever texted a friend to find out if it was jeans day or got nervous that you missed a meeting. Now imagine that you are 7 years old! Those feelings are much more intense. Around this time of year, we naturally have "fun" events going on - remember that "fun" can also stand for "Feeling Unusually Nervous"... try to keep a balance. Think of your school day as a hearty meal. We can't make a meal of cake for three straight weeks. It's fine to have some cake... but we also need to see meat, potatoes and veggies on the plate.


We are beginning a Christmas Challenge! Any day that you want to wear a holiday shirt or Bears shirt and your jeans or comfy clothes (yes, warm ups!), you must complete the challenge for that day. You are welcome to complete all 15!!
