The Energy Bus
Here is some information on the second rule in the story of The Energy Bus for Kids:

Rule #2: Fuel Your Ride with Positive Energy
In the story, the bus driver, Joy, teaches the students that positive energy is “…the positive thoughts and emotions you think and feel and share with others…” 

She further instructs them that fueling up with positive energy helps children “overcome challenges and achieve (their) goals.” 

We are working to encourage our students to think and act positively. You can help out at home by reinforcing positive energy found in your children’s “smiles, laughter, gratitude, trust, faith, joy” and helping them to “choose to be positive instead of negative.” 

I would love to hear about examples you see of your child displaying positive energy.

Homework Help is Here

Does homework take much longer than it should? Are you battling your child when it comes to doing homework? The Elementary  Homework Center  at Woodbury could be the answer. You can drop your child off for a ONE HOUR session with a certified teacher. There is no cost. No appointment necessary. The center is open Mondays through Thursdays from 4:30-7 p.m.

As you are all aware, Shaker Schools welcomes parents into our schools to volunteer, help in the classroom or even just to observe. It is important, however, that we are aware at all times (even when walking your child into school) of all visitors to Lomond. Please be sure at all times to check in at the school office and to sign IN and OUT when visiting Lomond School. Thank you.
