2023-2024 Home School Connection, week 22

Pioneer Equity and Voice Podcast, Elevating Student Voice

Hello Eagles,

Often, when families ask their child how their day went, children respond in one or two words like- “Fine” or “okay.” While that may be an acceptable answer, we hope that you try a few of the ones below. We hope to help your child develop language and by asking them to elaborate, it helps practice skills like critical thinking and fluency. Try one of these below.

We support our young learners by asking questions like:
  – What was the funniest thing that happened today?
  – What’s something cool you learned?
  – What’s one thing you’re looking forward to doing tomorrow?
  – Did you have a chance to ask any questions in class?
  – Do you learn or discover something today?

Try some of these after school with your child!

Check out our newest podcast! We are the Equity Council! Students from our Pioneer Equity Council talk about the four themes shared in this year’s Character Strong program- Respect, Responsibility, Gratitude, and Empathy. Each month, our school has focused on a character trait and we work on ways we can show our learning at home and at school. We invite you to listen and learn with us! LINK

Mark your calendars! We have a minimum day on Wednesday, January 24. School Dismissal is at 12:05. For more information about important upcoming events, please click on the Weekly Home School Connection, week 22.
