Our AR Progress
Throughout the year, each class will be collecting Box Tops and labels for education. When turning in your Box Tops or Labels please make sure it has your child's teacher's name in a baggie or envelope. The PTA keeps track of the progress of each class and awards a prize for the class that collects the most.
SOAR: Skill of the Month
GOALS. Writing down your goals makes them more concrete, and motivates you to keep working towards them. Write these goals down on index cards and keep them in a highly visible place where you can see them every day.
DON’T RUSH. Wake up early enough for school to arrive well ahead of time. If you need 30 minutes to get up, shower and dress, pad that time by waking up at least 45 minutes prior to your departure.
EFFECTIVE STUDY AREA. Designate a quiet, well-lit area for studying. Don’t study in front of the television, or in an area of your home where you’re bound to be distracted. Hang a Do Not Disturb sign on your door. If you can’t find a quiet spot at home, go to the library. In addition, you should study while sitting at a table or desk. Avoid studying in a very comfortable chair or a bed, which may cause you to feel drowsy.
AN APPLE A DAY. Eat three healthy meals each day, along with fruit for snacks. Don’t overload on sweets, which cause many people to feel tired.
WRITE IT DOWN. When you learn of an upcoming test, event, or anything you must prepare for or attend, immediately jot it in your Student Planner. Don’t wait for later, or you may forget about it.
