Dear Sexton Mt. Families:
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been reading the All About Me pages that Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and Fourth Grade families completed for our students. The pages will be given to 16-17 teachers so they can get to know kids a little before the school year even begins. One of the things I love about our school is the wide range of different interests, backgrounds, perspectives, experiences, abilities and skills our students bring to school each day. I listed a few of the words you used to describe strengths of our students. What do you notice about the list?
Unafraid to fail
Not afraid to fail
While the list of strengths seemed endless, when it came to each family’s hopes and dreams, there was a common theme. We want our children to feel safe and valued by those around them while doing something they love to make a positive difference in the world.
Last week, the PTC sponsored an assembly where children were taught strategies for dealing with strong emotions simply by recognizing the emotion and deciding on a plan for dealing with it appropriately. The presenter shared a number of stories and reminded children that one of the most important things we can do is treat others with respect and compassion. I feel privileged to serve students in a school where this is valued and practiced. Thank you for sharing your children with me!

- After School Safety-The paved path around our field and the pavement around the playground are closed to children from 2:50pm until 3:20pm so that buses and day care vans can pick up students.
- Bus Stop Safety- If your child rides the bus, please remind them to stay several feet away from the street and to be mindful of cars. Kids should not play chase or push games at the bus stop.
Wish List-These are things or jobs that make a difference to our kids, teachers, school and community. Send in items or let Mrs. CB know if you can volunteer.
