    Dear Sandpiper Families,

    It is officially Spring and there are a lot of events happening around Solana Pacific in the next few weeks and months. It is going to be busy and very exciting! We have runs and races, Heritage Night, fieldtrips and musical performances. Be sure to check our school website regularly for updates so you don’t miss any important details. Thank you!

    Friday, March 22nd is Solana Pacific’s Annual Sandpiper Sprint fun run to raise money for our STREAM classes. (We are closely monitoring weather and field conditions and will notify everyone if there is a need to postpone due to rain. We certainly are hoping for clear skies!) All funds raised support our cutting edge STREAM Discovery Labs (STREAM Lab, Art, Technology, and supplemental PE). Every student, each week gets to participate in hands-on project-based learning projects that are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards. In STREAM Discovery Labs students engage in engineering design, learn coding, participate in PE, use robotics, create art projects that nurture creativity and so much more!

    habit 5 rabbit in a hatFor the month of March, we will be focusing on Habit #5, Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood. Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood means that it is better to listen first and talk second. By taking the time to listen to another person, you reach a higher level of communication. Young children find it difficult to understand another’s paradigm (point of view). This habit is best approached by introducing listening as a skill that should be practiced. Learning to listen without interrupting and learning to listen with your ears, your eyes, and your heart will help children build a foundation for Habit 5. Simply put, we have two ears and one mouth so that we can spend more time listening with the intent to understand.
