All Things April

A note from the principal:

We hope that each and every one of you had a wonderfully relaxing and fun Spring Break with plenty of opportunities to build deeper connections as a family. It is unbelievable to me how quickly the year has flown- I am so fortunate to be able to serve such a wonderful community! We have so many exciting things planned for the remainder of the school year and hope to see many of you participating in these events with us. I am going to highlight just a few of them- please stay tuned each week for more details as we get closer to the dates.

Communication Matters:

Did you know that most parents and children only talk to each other for about 30 seconds a day? If you think about the amount of time you spend actually focused on an interaction with your family members, how much would it add up to?

Here are some helpful ideas from Time magazine (essentially, take the time to talk):

Truman's Trip Around Town:

This is a Community Wide Event scheduled for April 22nd from 9-11am. We encourage your family and friends to pile in the car and drive around town showing our PTown Pride! We will support local businesses along the way. Each stop will have activities promoting and focusing on our MVR-III 8 Pillars! You will get your map and stops the day of the event.

**There is a Pacific Partnership Community Pub Crawl the same day of the event and we fully expect to be done with our event at 11 before the Pub Crawl begins.

***There is also a city wide garage sale from 8am-12pm that day so feel free to stop at any of those stops before, during or after our event!

Pillar of the month: Resilience

Tips for helping students along the journey to developing resilience include:

  • building relationships
  • connecting with families
  • showing students how to set priorities and plan ahead

Provide opportunities for goal setting and reflection. Building resilience is all about maintaining a positive mindset, a willingness to grow and an ability to learn from setbacks. Setting goals and making time for reflection have been shown to help maintain focus and create momentum in times of growth and change.

On the back of the newsletter (and in the below image) is a great resource to support resiliency in our kiddos!
