PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE WITH SHANNON DAHL

It is that time of the year when school becomes a little more stressful, scholars are more easily frustrated and everyone feels tired! You may be asking "What can I do to help my child?" We have 6 areas of social emotional learning we focus on in schools:

  • Self-Awareness - Individual can identify their emotions, personal assets, areas for growth and potential external resources and supports.
  • Self-Management - Individual can regulate emotions, thoughts and behaviors.
  • Self=Efficacy - Individual can motivate themselves, persevere and see themselves as capable.
  • Social Awareness - Individual can take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
  • Social Management - Individual can make safe and constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions.
  • Social Engagement - Individual can consider others and show a desire to contribute to the well-being of school and community.

This month, it would be VERY helpful if you helped your child to learn to identify their emotions. This is beyond just feeling "good or bad," but specific emotions such as angry, tired, happy, excited, overwhelmed, etc. It often helps to have them draw their emotion and not only how it made them feel, but how their emotions make others feel. Stick figures are easy and quick...they can even be drawn on a napkin at a restaurant!

WHERE? Grant School (so cool)

GET INVOLVED (PTO)

We are in a CRISIS right now! We are in desperate need of families to step up and help our school. We need families to collaborate, brainstorm and fundraise. We need families to come and volunteer their time to help our school be the best it can be. Right now we are considering shutting down our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) due to lack of participation. We need dedicated, hardworking families to step up and be involved in the workings of Grant Elementary. If you feel you can do this, please contact our current officers (Holly Sligar, Marissa Cobb, Barley Ovenell or Principal Dahl) ASAP. The decision to end PTO will be made prior to the end of the school year.


REQUIREMENTS

Every year, because we are a Title I School, we have teachers, students and families complete something called a "compact." This is a collaborative agreement between all three parties to help with YOUR child's success.

Please complete the compact online. This should be quick and easy! Do not hesitate to contact the school with questions. Once completed your child will receive $50 Scholar Dollars!

Complete the Compact
