St. Catherine of Siena ECEC news & updates

Volume 8 Issue 4

Your child's teacher will be sending home a TRANSITION PLAN which will detail how we will assist your child in adjusting to school. Please add to the plan since you know your child best! If there are concerns you have, add those in the appropriate area. If there are suggestions that you have, add those as well! Together we will help your child adjust to PS/PK!  ASQ screening results have been sent home (if you submitted yours for scoring.  Teachers use those scores to assist with the transition plan as well as lesson plans.

So many lovey items.  Please stop by the gym and do a little shopping.

You will be hearing a lot about Conscious Discipline this year!  Our lead teachers spent a week in Indianapolis this summer learning new techniques and approaches. Upon returning, we purchased a course to take as a faculty to share it with everyone in the building.  This type of  approach can take up to three years to fully implement. As we continue through this year, we will share what we are doing and why it is important.  One thing that you may have noticed or heard about is our Greeting Ritual. Connection is the key to cooperation. Connections are made throughout the day with children and faculty but it  begins with our playful greetings. Fist bumps, high fives and other greetings, along with eye-contact and a smile help start the day with a connection. It also helps a child feel safe and welcomed.  Please create your own goodbye ritual for dropping off or even your own greeting ritual for pickup!
