    Family Character Activity- Unplug and Plug In
     
    Agree as a family to set aside a certain time frame each day this week to unplug from devices and plug into family time. It shows Respect, for example, to not bring those phones to the dinner table. How does it feel to experience proximity and practice our manners face-to-face? When else can you unplug to show Respect?

    Character Trait of the Month!

    For the month of October, we’re talking about the character trait of Respect. The dictionary defines it as the value of admiring another person for who they are and what they do. At Maple Lawn, we are using the definition from our PurposeFull People toolkit:

    Respect: seeing good in people and things (and treating them with care).

    We are also talking about Respect in the context of using good manners, not using inappropriate or offensive language, being courteous to one another, resolving conflicts peacefully, and treating one another as we would want to be treated (and how they want to be treated!).

    Family Character Activity- beginning of the month conversation starters and questions to ask!

    Conversation Starters:

    • Talk with your child about what it means to be respectful, to be courteous and to use their manners, to solve conflict peacefully, and what it means to treat others the way they want to be treated.
    • Talk about a time you felt disrespected and what you did about it in a way that demonstrated Respect.

    Questions to ask:

    • What do “good manners” look like in our family? How does using good manners show Respect?
    • How does it feel to be respected? How does it feel to be disrespected? Who are the most respectful people you know?

    What a wonderful first week of school!

    Our students did an amazing job this week, settling back into full time school. Our students spent time this week learning or reviewing our Husky Way building wide expectations. They spent time building relationships with their teacher and their classmates. Their smiles brought joy to all of us!!

    Thank you to our families for all your support this first week back. Thank you to our incredible staff for the hard work that went into a successful first week of school. And thank you to our wonderful students for working so hard this week! It's going to be a great year!!

  • Principal Update: 9/8/21

    Posted by SBLSD on 9/8/2021

    I want to start by thanking you all for your patience as we work towards a safe and smooth dismissal. Today, all of our buses were at MLE and loaded 30-45 minutes earlier than yesterday. We changed our system for loading students and it went much quicker. Our late bus, bus 59, was able to play outside on the playground while waiting for their bus to arrive. They were loaded and on their way by 3:55 today. This is a celebration on our second day of school!

    We are aware of the long lines backing up for both our car pick up loops. We need your help! Please do not arrive until 3:10. Our students begin walking out of class at 3:11. Today, our loops were completely full at 2:45 and dismissal isn't until 3:10. We really believe if parents wait to come to the pick up loops at our 3:10 dismissal, it will be so much safer and much less frustrating. If you are picking up in our back MLE loop, it is very important that the Wood and Willow intersection is not blocked. Our buses turn at that intersection. 

    Please remember to call the office if your child has a change in pick up at dismissal. Our teachers work hard to ensure they are going to the right spot. 

    Thank you again for all your patience! And as we work this month to focus on the character trait of kindness, we appreciate your kindness towards our staff! 

    Have a wonderful evening. We had a great 2nd day of school and look forward to seeing all our Huskies tomorrow!!

    Character Trait of the Month!

    This month we’re talking about the beautiful character trait of Kindness. The dictionary defines it as: “the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.” But it is so much more than that! The definition we are using at Maple Lawn is:

    Kindness: the choice to act with words, gifts, or actions to bring appreciation, positivity, and encouragement to others and yourself.

    The key part of this definition is that Kindness is a choice that we get to make every day to bring good things into our lives and the world. Those good things can look like more than just some kind words; Kindness is given through our actions and our encouragement and our attitude and our gifts. We will spend time thinking about how to be kind to ourselves, to our environment, to animals, and to one another. We will get to experience meaningful words through compliments and feel the joy that comes from showing appreciation to others. We will think about how people like Jackie Chan and Booker T. Washington and Maya Angelou teach us Kindness. It will be a powerful and positive time at Maple Lawn!

    Ask your child throughout the month to share about what they are learning about Kindness!

    Need some help?

    Over dinner tonight, brainstorm ways that you can show Kindness to your neighbors. Maybe you’ve noticed that your neighbor hasn’t walked his dog in a while. Perhaps there are some leaves that need to be raked or flower gardens that need to be weeded. Are there trash cans that could be brought in off of the curb? Or might there be a car that you’d be willing to wash? Discuss which service you might want to offer, then knock on a door and ask, “Need some help?”

    Directory information withholding

    Parents and guardians may choose whether their child’s name, photos and other directory information is used in district and school publications (print and electronic), social media, websites, videos or by the news media.

    If you would like to opt your child out, complete the Directory Information Withholding Form and return it to your child’s school. Please think carefully before restricting this information as your child’s name and photo cannot be included in yearbooks or be part of classroom, team or club photos.

    If you complete the Directory Information Withholding Form, your child’s directory information will also not be disclosed to outside organizations, the military, institutions of higher education or used in any communication that could reach the public or media. Learn more about keeping directory information private.
