Locust School had a wonderful November and our students are certainly so thankful for their families, friends, teachers, and staff. We kicked off PARP with a great virtual Author Visit that was very well attended and received rave reviews, and we are so very proud of all of our students who submitted entries for the Reflections Contest.
Congratulations to our Locust School Reflections Winners in the Visual Arts:
Now that December is here, we are very much looking forward to the holiday season ahead! Our November Primary PTA meeting featured a very helpful presentation from our district Psychologists and Social Workers on navigating the upcoming holiday season and pandemic winter from a Social/Emotional perspective. It included tips on how to deal with “Covid fatigue”, helping younger children manage disappointments related to celebrating the holidays in 2020, and how to approach what feels like the particularly long months of January and February. If you’d like to see a copy of the presentation, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to send it to you.
