Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Hello Fairview Park Families - 

In these ever-changing times, I wanted to let you know of some support groups/events coming up for our parents:

3) MS/HS Parent Zoom - October 7 and 14th - 3:30- 6 p.m. - want to understand how to check your child's progress, understand our tools like Summit, Google Classroom, etc....sign up for an individual appointment with a teacher who will walk you through everything you want to know. Link coming soon.

I recently read this great article from Prepared Parents website (https://preparedparents.org/). I wanted to pass on two quick thoughts:

Routines: When kids have predictable daily routines, they feel less stressed
During times of uncertainty, regular rituals and routines can be stabilizing. Our brains are “prediction machines that like order, and when our environments are orderly, the brain is calmer.” says Cantor. When kids have predictable daily routines, they feel less stressed and more secure. Routines help families bond and provide kids with a sense of belonging.

In addition, rituals and routines:

✅ Establish expectations
✅ Create a calmer household
✅ Nurture confidence and independence
✅ Help to organize daily life

Daily routines like Check-in/Check-out pull the family together as you begin and end your day. It’s an opportunity to take your emotional temperature and support each other. Start the day with a Check-In to assess where everyone is emotionally. Take turns naming 3 adjectives that describe your feelings. And then take the time for each person to spend a minute or two explaining why they chose these. It can be hard to name emotions, especially for little kids. Ask them to make a face that mimics how they’re feeling or point to a picture that expresses their mood.

After everyone has shared for a minute or two, invite each person to say what they noticed using these sentence starters:

🤔 I noticed…
🤔 I wonder…
🤔 I feel…

This is an opportunity for everyone in the family to be a reflector/mirror and point out things the individual may not see in themselves. Wrap up the Check-In by indicating you’re ready for the day by saying, “I’m in.”  

End the day with a Check-Out. Each family member should start this process answering the question, “what’s one take away from today?” Then find something to be grateful for, and share this gratitude. The Check-Out concludes when you each say, “I’m out.”

Check-In/Check-Out can become a daily routine that builds important habits like reflection, self-awareness, empathy, and a secure attachment or bond. The more we give, the more we get, and this is a gift we can give each other.


Relationships: Deepen your relationship with your child
Maximize short bursts of time together to deepen your relationship with your kid. It only takes five to 20 minutes for a kid to feel loved and secure. They thrive on short bursts of consistent, undivided attention and since they have short attention spans, this brief time together is really satisfying.

You’re showing your kid they matter. Mattering is the belief that we make a difference in the world around us. It’s measured by responses to these questions:
  • How important am I to others?
  • How interested are others in what I have to say?
  • How much do other people depend on me?

Use this framework to create a strong, secure attachment with your child.

Helping your child feel a sense of belonging
Kids worry about finding their niche, fitting in, and ultimately belonging, especially when they’re making transitions like starting a new school year or joining a new school. It also happens when kids feel different or like an outsider due to race, ethnicity, language or even physical disability. That can trigger stress, worry, and anxiety.

The sense of belonging is so critical to our kids’ success that it is one of the 16 most powerful habits kids should develop to enable them to be successful at both academic and non-academic pursuits. It’s crucial as our kids prepare to take on life’s challenges. Their environment, culture, community, and day-to-day interactions with others all impact the sense of belonging.

Nurture belongingness at home by focusing some time and attention on these steps.

This is just one of the tips included in the Prepared Parents Back-to-School Guide. There’s lots more to help you navigate re-opening, whatever it looks like.

Have a great week!
