STUDENTS + PARENTS + COMMUNITY
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Instructor: Mrs. White   
 


Welcome to 4th Grade with Mrs. White!
SEPTEMBER NEWS!
The Leader In Me
As you know, we are implementing The Leader in Me this year and I love listening to all of my students using the language and working to be good role models and great leaders themselves. We have started creating our Leadership Notebooks and setting goals for ourselves. We hope to share these with you during conferences.

We have read the book "The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey and discussed in detail all of the Habits. We spent a lot of time really thinking about ways we can be (and already are) proactive at home and at school. We reviewed the difference between being reactive instead of proactive. The example that we really connected with was a soda bottle vs. a water bottle. What happens when you shake up a soda bottle?! It explodes. When things happen and have you feeling all shaken up, donít react like a soda and explode, act like a water bottle and stay calm and figure it out.
Please talk with your child about the 7 Habits and ask them the following questions. How can you become a great leader and take ownership for your learning & actions? What are the seven habits? How can good habits help you achieve your goals?
Thank you for your support.


* HOMEWORK: Students are to read every night! Parents please sign the homework planner each night and check to see if your child has placed all complete assignments in their Leader Binder.

* MORNING LINE UP: Please drop your child off at the back of the school by 7:50 am. There will always be teachers and assistants to greet the children and to make sure that they are safe. We will proceed up to our classroom at 7:55 am. Please
arrive
on time so that the class can walk together and begin the day without interruption. Students are late if they arrive after 8:00 am. They must come to the front door of the school and check in at the office to get a Pass Slip before entering the classroom.

* DISMISSAL: The children will be dismissed to the back of the school at 2:25 pm. Please note that dismissal on half days is at 12:30 pm.
