Weekly News Blast for the Week of April 22, 2019
Reminder! School resumes on Tuesday, April 23. 
This Saturday, April 27 is the 2019 Derby Dash! 
Ohio Achievement Tests
Testing time is here again. By helping your child become physically and mentally prepared, you are helping them lower any feelings of test anxiety. Test anxiety is a very common experience; however, with some preparation, can be reduced and improve their performance.
 
Please help your son/daughter prepare by:
 
  • Getting an adequate night's sleep (8-10 hours)
  • Wake up on time to avoid rushing and arrive to school on time
  • Eat a nutritious breakfast
  • Reminding them to listen closely to all directions and read directions carefully
  • Answer questions they know first, and come back to the harder questions later
 
When your child feels confident in their test taking skills, they will have less text anxiety and be able to focus on doing their best and showing what they have learned.

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)

Hi Fairview Park Families!

As spring is upon us (finally!)....this time of year always flies by.......so I wanted to take a moment to remind all of us to stay focused on what we need to do before the end of the school year and also start thinking of some plans for the summer. 

Finish strong
* Is your child caught up on all their school work?  If not, have them email or talk to their teacher to see what is missing. Then make sure they spend some time doing the work.
* Make sure your child is getting 8-10 hours of sleep each night.
* Make sure your child knows ways to de-stress (the MS/HS know from our workshops)....check out the FACE Resource page to see the anxiety and stress articles. 

Summer ideas 
* Check out the FACE resource page of summer camps listed
* Check out the Gemini site for all their activities (they are looking for volunteer MS and HS students for Safety Town).
* Library has a bunch of fun programs....starting to fill...hurry up and check them out!
* Over 16 years old...check out on the Counseling page the Job board.....many ideas!!  Not sure how to find a job...come see me...I can guide you through the process (room 219).

As always, if you have some ideas for some topics on Parent Universities for next school year.....PLEASE email with any ideas of things you want to know about!!!  My door is always open for families of Fairview Park!
