Leader In Me

In the month of March our staff and students will be focusing on Habit #3 – Put First Things First.    Put First Things First means decide what is most important and to take care of that first.  Spend time on things that are the most important.  Thinking about what needs to be done tomorrow or by the end of the week can be overwhelming, especially for children. Learning to think of which things are the most important and taking care of them first allows children (and adults) to be less stressed.   Your child should be using their agenda/planner at school.  This is a great organizational tool and can be used by writing down his or her responsibilities and planning ahead.  Last-minute trips to the store, missed events, or missed homework can usually be avoided.

A couple of useful ideas

  1. Create a list of things your child needs to accomplish throughout a week. With your child, rank the tasks in importance. Then rewrite the list in order of importance. Use a planner or calendar to schedule time so that the important things are done first.
  2.  Ask your child to make a list of what he or she thinks is his or her biggest time-waster and what to do about it.

 On March 16th the students from Mrs. van Beek and Mrs. Matsuba’s classes will be hosting a school wide assembly.  The assembly will focus on this habit and discuss and showcase some Leader In Me initiatives. We invite you to attend this assembly and any assemblies we have in the future. We will begin at 2:00.
