Happy Spring Break!

Friday, March 31, 2017 - 1:20pm

Dear Addison Families, As you either plan some down time or a great adventure, I hope you and your families have a wonderful Spring Break!  School will be closed next week and classes will resume on Monday, April 10.

I also wanted to leave you with a couple resources before break.  This morning we had the Principal's Coffee and our School Psychologist, Rita Rodriguez, gave a great presentation on Mindfulness activities we can share with our children:

Mindfulness Practice for Families

I also shared a short article related to my personal and professional life.  I'm constantly thinking about the freedom or restraints I provide our children whether it be the recess/ lunch "rules", when to intervene as student conflicts arise, when to schedule playdates and making sure I'm inclusive of ALL children, and how many after school activities to enroll my own kids.  The article doesn't provide answers to these tough questions but I thought it was an interesting read:

Controlling How Children Play

I'm also hoping that as families consider completing the 2017-18  Optional Parent Input Forms for Class Assignment (available in the office), we allow children to work through a variety of social and learning experiences.  As a reminder, if you do have input, these forms will be due on April 14.

Have a wonderful week!
