Our Principal's Message

Dear Longhorn Families,

Welcome to a month of love! February may be a short month, but it is packed with goodness. This is the month we celebrate our love of reading. I am so proud of our students. I get to visit classrooms, and I see students reading for longer periods. At school, we tell students they are building stamina for reading. Have you noticed your student reading more at home and for longer periods? Ask your child to tell you about what he/she is reading. Ask your child to tell you about his or her book and show you the different sections.

February is a great month to talk with your child about what she/he loves! In writing, we are asking students to state their opinion or craft an argument. Give your child a choice and then ask why that item is a favorite. For example, you are making dinner and cannot decide to serve peas or corn. Ask your children to make and defend their choice. The child with the best defense helps you with dinner. This can take place while shopping, picking a restaurant, or selecting a book to read. It is a way to help children practice a skill at home in a new and different way. It also gives you the opportunity to find what your child likes and does not like.

Let’s spread kindness around this month. Encourage your child to make another person’s day. This is an easy task, but often over looked. Give someone a compliment, “I really like your hair today!” or “That shirt really brings out the color of your eyes;” help carry the groceries after going to the store, “Mom, let me help you;” help a sibling with their chores, “I see that you have a lot of homework today. I can help by sweeping the kitchen;” help another child make a new friend, “Hey, do you want to play with us.” Small gestures of kindness go a long way to making others feel good and cared about.

It is a great day to be a Longhorn! Please take a moment to read the full principal’s message in our February newsletter.
