Thanksgiving is a perfect time to reflect and give thanks for the many blessings we enjoy. We at Solana Pacific have so much to be thankful for, and our “thank you” list is quite long this year.
- Thank you for all of your volunteer efforts—from room parents to classroom volunteers, we appreciate the thousands of hours you give so generously.
- Thank you for supporting our Foundation! So far this year, nearly half of our families have contributed. Please donate, in any amount, if you have not already done so. Also, look into matching donations through your employer. Our STREAM and Discovery Labs are engaging and fun thanks to your generosity. And, our students LOVE the Maker Space and our beautiful garden!
- Thank you for supporting our amazing PTO—so many great programs and opportunities for our students and families come from this group of parents and the army of volunteers who support us!
- Thank you for participating in our events and activities—from Back to School to STREAM Fest, from special event and fieldtrip volunteers to Math Olympiad parents, we can always count on you to be there for your kids.
- Thank you for sending your children to school prepared, on-time, and ready to learn!
- Thanks for recognizing our teachers and support staff with luncheons and treats throughout the year. We feel appreciated!
I am also extremely thankful for the wonderful teachers and staff who devote their time and talent teaching our students. They are the absolute best any school could ever have! On behalf of all of us at Solana Pacific, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and look forward to seeing you back at school on December 2nd!
For the months of November and December, we will be focusing onHabit #3, Put First Things First.Put First Things First means to decide what is most important and to take care of that first. Thinking about what needs to be done tomorrow or by the end of the week can be overwhelming, especially for children. Learning to think of which things are the most important and taking care of them first allows children (and adults) to be less stressed. Your child uses a planner at school, which is a great organizational tool to Put First Things First in writing. By writing down his or her responsibilities and planning ahead, last-minute trips to the store, missed events, or missed homework are avoided. If your child does not use a planner, having a weekly log would also be helpful. This could simply be a piece of paper that is used each week. Modeling this behavior is one of the best ways to teach children.
