The Principal's Corner
Happy New Year! Its hard to believe that the school half year mark is quickly approaching. This is a great time of the school year to reflect with your student on the progress they have made this year and for goal setting for the remainder of the school year. Setting goals is key to achievement in life, regardless of what you want to achieve or the circumstances in which you begin. If we show students how to set and achieve goals and how to use these principles in the classroom we will give them important tools that will help them for a lifetime. Goal setting for children can help them keep focus on skill development like learning how a play a musical instrument, saving money, making new friends, or doing chores for a reward.
South Street students have been focusing on being responsibility for the months of January and February. Parents can help teach their child about responsibility by reminding students that responsibility is being dependable and accountable for your words and action, doing your best and never blaming others for your mistakes, and completing you schoolwork correctly and on time. Students who are demonstrating responsibility at school receive a rocket ticket and are entered into a raffle for a free book.
Again, we would like to remind parents to help your children make appropriate choices for school clothing. Students will be outside during the school day for recess if temperatures are warm. They need to be dressed appropriately. In addition, please remember to label all clothing with your child’s name and encourage you child to visit the lost and found if they misplaced their clothing.
Finally, South Street will be having a Writing Celebration on Friday, January 31st. Please be on the lookout for information from your child’s teacher.
