Red Ribbon Week
Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free. This year's Red Ribbon Week theme will help amplify the campaign's mission to encourage children, families and communities to live healthy, happy and drug-free lives. It also serves as a reminder that we are all empowered with shaping the communities around us through positivity, bravery and strength.

October 23 -31 we will be having a spirit week to bring awareness to drug-use prevention. It is important for us to take care of our bodies, which we can do in many ways - we can eat healthy food, get exercise, practice deep breathing, get enough sleep, and much more! Avoiding the use of illegal drugs is an important element of a healthy lifestyle.
Warriors of the Week
Evangeline C.- 6th grade WOW

Evangeline C. is the 6th grade’s Warrior of the Week. Evangeline has worked so hard this year to stay on top of all of her work. While she is in school, she is on time to class, attentive and very diligent about getting her work done. While working from home (remote), Evangeline participates in discussions and is very attentive. She shows her teachers she is engaged in the learning by nodding her head, giving thumbs up and participating in Nearpod activities. Each night Evangeline finishes the assignments that she did not get done at school and always reaches out when she doesn’t understand something. Evangeline, your determination will take you far. Keep up the good work!

Prepared Parents
Are your kids hitting the Fall Wall - having trouble getting pumped for school? The pandemic has blown up our sense of time and isolated us. Each day bleeds into the next. Boredom and stress have numbed us.

We’re hearing from educators what we parents already know - it’s getting harder to engage kids in remote learning.

A Learning Loss Analysis of data from +900 schools shows that 25% of second graders showed up this Fall at least two grade levels below in reading (vs. 19% in a typical year), 30% were two or more grade levels below in math (vs. 20%). More students in higher minority and higher poverty schools tend to be two or more grade levels below this Fall than their peers in lower minority, lower poverty schools.

This Opportunity Insights Analysis shows that as recently as 10/11/20, students from high-income ZIP codes have a 3.9% increased participation in online math coursework compared to January 2020, while students from low-income ZIP codes show a 10.3% decrease. The same is true of higher income metros such as Washington, D.C.

Whether it’s student malaise or parent frustration, for a lot of kids remote learning just isn’t working.

But there’s a way to make distance learning kinda work:
We’ll help you with a daily routine that takes just 5 minutes. It’s been groundbreaking for us and many of our most engaged parents. We’ve also built it into UnBoxed, our monthly digital learning kit for kids in grades 4 - 9.

We share 5 Virtual Learning tips (you never knew), to help your kids focus during remote learning.

And, introduce Reflection How-Tos as a coping mechanism for the kiddos.

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Hello Fairview Park Families,
 
As we prepare for Red Ribbon Week next week - I hope everyone participates in the Spirit Week!

DID YOU KNOW? Children of parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don’t; yet, only a quarter of teens report having these conversations. Red Ribbon Week® (October 23-31), the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the nation, is your opportunity to get the ongoing conversation started. This year’s theme is Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.™ Visit www.redribbon.org to learn more about Red Ribbon Week® and get tips for talking to your kids about drugs. The life you save may be that of your own child or a dear friend.

I always want to leave you some resources - this week I will focus on alcohol (next week drugs and vaping):

   Has great resources on drugs and alcohol for parents and teens

   Amazing site with information on Alcohol
 
As always, please reach out to me if there is any other information you are looking for you or your child!

Keep smiling and staying well!
