Hopefully you have all had a relaxing and fun-filled summer! The staff at Grand View Elementary is very excited for the beginning of another year of learning and fun with the students, and is gearing up for another great school year!
While sharing the love of literacy and learning during the summer is very important, it is also important to continue practicing those good learning habits at home during the school year. Setting the expectation of reading at home, talking to students about what they are reading, practicing math facts, and sharing real-world examples of mathematics is a great way to ensure that what your students learn while at school will stick in their minds and continue their growth throughout the school year.
For activity ideas you can do at home, please read our September 10, 2018 newsletter!
Grand View Elementary Families,
The new school year has started smoothly! In every classroom, students are already engaged in meaningful learning. We spent the first couple weeks setting the tone for the year by reviewing the procedures and routines of the school day. Additionally, our students have relearned ways to interact appropriately and make choices to solve conflicts with peers. In the upcoming weeks, teachers will start engaging our students in new project based learning units. In project based learning, students will work on a project over an extended period of time that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. At the end of their projects, we will invite you into the school to share in their learning and creativity.
Having grit and perseverance takes a lot of energy. As your child continues to engage in deeper learning throughout the school year, it will become more important for their developing brains and bodies to be ready when they arrive at school. You can set your child up for success by ensuring that they regularly eat a healthy balanced diet, get lots of sleep each night, and feel safe and secure at home. If you have any questions about how to better prepare your student for school, ask your child’s teacher.
Thanks for sharing your children with us.
