March Theme:  Present Moment

We have already observed so many positive impacts of daily in person instruction on students academic progress and their overt engagement in the learning process. They have been joyfully (and safely) engaging with peers in classroom discussions, during supervised free play, and many new and Kinder Vikings discovered the magic of the school library and check out. We have planned tirelessly and looked forward to these moments and are giving thanks that we are finally all together.

Checking in with your child's feelings using our zones or other tools like a feelings journal can be a powerful tool in remaining connected and processing big emotions as we continue to live in a time with COVID. We want all families to know if you notice differences in your child's mood, sleep patterns, worries, physical symptoms we are here and prepared to support directly or indirectly.

School Wide Communication

A reminder to all Crestridge families to check ClassDojo daily. ClassDojo is the school wide communication app that is used across Crestridge. Families can find school wide and classroom announcements shared here. Additionally, teachers use this tool to communicate your students achievements, as well as areas where parent- teacher collaboration may be needed. Reviewing your child's Dojo points is a great way to discuss with your student the positive choices they are making at school.
