HEY Parents!! Ready to learn some great tips and ideas for the summer months.
WE HAVE TWO GREAT OPPORTUNITIES THIS MONTH FOR PARENTING WORKSHOPS:
Please join us at one of these parent nights! NO sign up necessary.
Second Step is the curriculum that is being taught K-8 and this parent night will highlight ways that you can support your child’s emotional growth at home.
The Elementary School Behavior Coaches will be presenting helpful information for parents of K-8 students.
Maywood Middle School - May 21, 6-7 pm
Beaver Lake Middle School - May 30, 6-7pm (closest location)
Issaquah Middle School - June 11, 6-7pm
(COME TO ANY OF THESE EVENINGS FOR THE SAME PRESENTATION)
If this cartoon is how you feel sometimes, please join other parents from Discovery and Creekside in learning about how to balance family life and screens.
FREE! Sign up here
WHEN: Wednesday, May 22nd
WHERE: Creekside Elementary (due to our construction, we are offering this at the beautiful multi-purpose room of Creekside).
A child's work is play. Please make sure that your child is getting time to play both indoors and outdoors before and/or after school.
Please also take some time to talk with your child about what they did each day in school. For example; what was hard about today, what was easy, what was fun, etc.
In addition to play and conversations about their school day, it is important that your child spends 20 minutes per night interacting with books. That can be you reading to them, them reading to you, and/or you both reading together. While reading with your child, take time to ask them questions about the story and the characters. Talking with children about what they are reading supports their reading comprehension and vocabulary development. For example; Who was the main character of the story? What happened in the beginning of the story? The middle of the story? The end of the story? What was your favorite part of the story? Etc.
Thank you! Your support in your child's education is instrumental and foundational in their enjoyment and success in school.
