PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES - Thanks to all of the parents and students who participated in the Parent Teacher Conferences last week. We all want the very best for the children of Fairview and we know that the school home partnership is critical to giving our children the very best.
PTA SPONSORED "DRUG AND BULLY FREE WEEK" - Thanks to our amazing PTA for sponsoring this year's "Drug and Bully Free Week." From February 12-16, students are invited to dress up in different ways ton each of the four days that week. Please review the calendar below so you can help your student prepare for enjoying this week.
NO SCHOOL FEBRUARY 16-19, 4 DAY WEEKEND - Students will enjoy a 4-day President's Day weekend beginning Friday, February 16. Please enjoy this time with your children. We hope to see all of the students back in school Tuesday, February 20.
PTA MOVIE NIGHT - WONDER - We are excited to announce a Free Movie Night sponsored by the PTA. Students and their families are invited to watch WONDER at the elementary school. On Wednesday, February 28th, doors will open at 5:40 pm and the movie will begin promptly at 6:00 pm. There will be snacks avaiable for purchase. Students must be accompanied by an adult during the movie. You are welcome to bring blankets and pillows. (WONDER tells the inspiring and hearwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggies extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out. ) https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/wonder
HIGH SCHOOL SPONSORED FOOD DRIVE - A flyer was sent home with the students announcing the Food Drive sponsored by the North Sanpete High School Student Council. It started on February 2 and ends on March 2. Bring any non-perishable food items to your child's classroom. We encourage you and your family to join in supporting this drive in support of struggling families in Sanpete County. The class that collects the most food will ern a party with refreshments and activities with the North Sanpete High School Student Government.
AFTERNOON PICKUP OF STUDENTS AT SCHOOL - Than you to all of the parents who consistently and carefully pull into the school parking lot and park in a space. Students need to use sidewalks and crosswalks in order to keep them safe. Students are dismissed at 2:30 pm. Please make sure you arrive by 2:30 pm also. Our teachers on duty need to prepare for the next school day and attend meetings such as professional development and IEP's. Be considerate of their time and arrive promptly to pickup your child. Thanks for your help in keeping our children safe.
BEST PRACTICES PARENTING TIP - Anxiety - When your child is anxious about something, rather than trying to take the problem away help them figure out how to navigate it. Normalize their nervousness, "I see why that my be making you nervous. How do you think you could handle that?"
We have a tendency as parents to take away their stress. Although this sometimes amkes us feel like a good parent, it does not build their resilience and truly doesn't really help them. Give then opportunity, over and over, to figure out what works for them and what doesn't.
If your child is worrying about a test, brainstorm strategies to help them be sucessful in their test taking. If they are worried about going to a sleep-away camp because they are afraid they will get homesick, talk to them about how lots of kids get a little homesick when away from home (normalize it). Then talk about ways they can get used to being away from home and work through their homesick feelings.
