Northshore
JANUARY 2019


Note From The Principal

Happy New Year!!! The beginning of the new year is a perfect time to refresh. It's a time to set new goals and work on new accomplishments. I've completed my 1st semester at RSPA. I finally really understand "We are Crew, not passenger". It is our desire the 2nd half of the year will be excellent for ALL. Throughout 2019, you will see changes based on feedback from the parent survey, all driven by your desire to make RSPA the shining star of our community.

December was an awesome month here at RSPA!!! I want to thank every student, parent, teacher, and staff member who worked with our scholars to deliver top notch Christmas programs for our community. Our annual production this year was "Annie Jr." Our scholars demonstrated why we are one of the best fine arts schools in Texas. It was amazing!!
I also want to personally thank every parent and staff member who volunteered to help build our beautiful new playground! Some of you dropped off snacks and water, while many of you put in the physical labor to ensure our scholars will have an exciting place to enjoy with friends and family. Thanks to Kaboom, Quantum Learning, and our GT scholars for making this happen.

Last, our good news is our plans have been approved to begin our journey back to the Northshore campus. The work has already begun over the Winter break. Please see the newsletter from our superintendent for further information. As soon as I receive more information, I will share it with the community. We appreciate your continued patience and support.
Our bus shuttles will continue to transport our students to the designated campus until our return. Please be mindful we need all students riding the buses dropped off between 6:45 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. We need car riders picked up from Northshore by 4:00 p.m. Any students remaining after 4:15 will be placed in Crayon Club for a fee. We are working diligently to get students who ride the bus home safely and in a timely fashion.
Let's make 2019 a great year! Be sure to set new goals with your children to help them to be successful this year. I appreciate each and every one of you.
 
Educationally yours,

This month's character traits are Responsibility and Perseverance. Responsibility is defined as the opportunity or ability to act independently and make decisions without authorization. Some examples of what responsibility looks like in children is:
  • Completing homework without reminder
  • Doing chores on a consistent basis
  •  Acknowledging for their mistakes and attempting to make things right 
The ability to take responsibility for ones actions is a character trait that is needed to be a great leader. 
 
Perseverance is doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success. Often times success takes talent in addition to hours of practice and/or studying. Instilling this value in our children can assist them for years to come. Some ways to cultivate perseverance is to:
  •  Allow them the opportunity to be challenged
  • Try starting with an area of high interest for your child to ensure they want to focus on the difficult task
  • Be kind with them when they struggle with things. This will help build the confidence to continue.
 Praise their effort, their perseverance instead of achievements.
