Director General

 

We strongly believe in developing a productive partnership with you to allow your children to achieve their highest potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community- must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all our students.

We know that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for your children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you actively guide and support your child’s learning as well. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

Communication is key to this partnership.  We are fully confident that adding Edlio to our suite of platforms will help facilitate efficient communication, providing you with targeted and timely information.  We know you are busy, and want to respect your time. This new platform will allow you to pick areas of activities that you want to keep well informed about, and specific teachers and other staff within our dynamic community whose communication you want to follow.  We trust that you find it useful and look forward to your feedback on improving the same.

 

 

Sincerely,

Kenneth Peterson

TRY THESE STRATEGIES FOR KEEPING YOUR TEEN’S MOODS IN CHECK.

By Gina Shaw



WATCH THEIR Zs

Mood and sleep are closely related. For teens, the sleep sweet spot is between eight and 10 hours a night. Everybody’s individual sleep needs differ, but if your teen is getting somewhere in that range, research shows that he or she is more likely to wake up on the right side of the bed.


LIMIT SCREEN TIME

Studies find that adolescents who spend more time texting, surfing the web, and posting on social media are less happy and satisfied with their lives. Non-screen activity, on the other hand, appears to correlate with greater happiness.


PUSH PALS

Positive moods are contagious in teens, studies show. If your teen spends time with friends who have a positive outlook, he or she is more likely to catch that sunny disposition.


USE HEALTHY COPING STRATEGIES YOURSELF

When you’re stressed, do you go out for a run, grab a cup of coffee with a friend, or take time to meditate - or do you reach for a glass of wine? “Kids model what they learn from their parents,” says Cheung.

4 tips to avoid overscheduling your children

4 Tips


MICHAEL THOMPSON, PhD HAS A FEW IDEAS ABOUT HOW TO AVOID THE OVERSCHEDULING TRAP.


BE REALISTIC

“Don’t raise your child with the college admissions committee in mind” says Thompson. In reality, only 1% of athletes get sports scholarships, and many colleges value having one gift or passion rather than a long list of hobbies.



LIMIT SCREEN TIME

If kids replace extracurricular activities with electronic devices, that creates other problems. Thompson recommends one to two hours maximum per day for elementary schoolers.



SCHEDULE IDLE TIME

Actively plan time for screen-free reading, hiking, outside play, art projects, time with family, or just daydreaming.



EAT DINNER TOGETHER

Sitting down to eat together provides a time to de-stress and catch up. Studies show kids who eat meals with their family routinely have higher academic achievement scores and fewer behavioral problems.
