Week of 25 Feb 2019
Welcome to week twenty-four at Pond Cove. My hope is that you all found some time to enjoy family, friends, and fun activities last week.
As we transition back to school routines and schedules, it is important for us to remember that this can create temporary challenges for some. Each student responds a bit differently to the changes in eating and resting habits, as well as overall expectations, which result when vacation ends and school starts back up. A simple awareness of this by adults can set students up for a successful first week back.
Pond Cove staff will be supporting the transition back to school by reviewing procedural and behavioral expectations with students early this week. We anticipate that students may need a bit of scaffolding after a vacation break and we understand that a proactive approach is best. These reviews will include common expectations and procedures in the classroom, hallway, restroom, playground, cafeteria, and school bus.
Please take a moment to discuss the Link: School-Wide Expectations Poster with your child at home. I am hopeful that students are able to share why the expectations are important and explain what each expectation looks like in the the school setting.
As always, I am here to discuss your child's school experience or answer any questions you may have. Email continues to be the most efficient way to reach me.
Please see the Link: Pond Cove Student & Family Handbook 2018-2019 for helpful information.
