Kindergarten Program
Our Kindergarten Holiday program is Friday, December 21st at 2:00 PM in the gym!   The program usually lasts approximately 30 minutes.   Parking is often a problem; please give yourself a few extra minutes to find an appropriate parking spot .  

At the conclusion of the program you are welcome to take your child home for the day. Buses will run as scheduled.
Kindergarten Counselor Corner
This week in the kindergarten classrooms we discussed the difference between tattling and reporting. Tattling is when we talk with the teacher about someone just to get them in trouble and we could handle the problem ourselves. Reporting or Telling is when we tell the teacher about a situation that is important or dangerous.
We tell the teacher if:
  1. Someone is hurt
  2. There is danger
  3. Someone is sick
  4. Someone is fighting
  5. There is a bullying situation
We do NOT tell the teacher if:
  1. It was an accident
  2. I'm okay
  3. I can use the problem-solving wheel and solve the problem myself
We also read the book A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue and discussed scenarios in which the students identified whether it was tattling or reporting. Next time, we will be discussing being a good friend.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out by calling us at Gilles-Sweet Elementary or emailing us at mschulte@fairview.k12.oh.us or rschlesinger@fairview.k12.oh.us

Thanks,
Meredith Schulte and Robin Schlesinger

Family and Community Engagement Corner
By Ms. Carrie Sullivan
Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Coordinator 

As the holiday season is approaching, I just wanted to reflect on a few things to bring joy to your family.

1) If there is one thing that students, parents and teachers learned from watching the Angst documentary... Talk to your kids! Let them know you are there for them! Please, if you need any resources, click here. Or call/email me! 

2) The link below is the eulogy that George W. Bush gave regarding his father along with an article that helps remind us that... 

In the eulogy, George W didn't mention once that his parents made sure he had organic food his whole life, or had Pinterest worthy birthday parties, or the perfect monogrammed matching outfits with his siblings. He didn't mention that his parents made sure their week was planned with playdates and millions of extracurricular activities.  He reflected over and over again about how much his dad loved and was dedicated to his mother.

I worry that we get so caught up in the minor things that we forget the major thing.... which is teaching our kids what unconditional love and loyalty looks like.


Please take a few minutes to listen to his speech and read the article.  Have a great week!
