Our ACT family library is a great resource for parents and students. There are a number of helpful books that parents may check out with topics that range from parenting a gifted child to perfectionism. Students may also check out books from the ACT classroom library to read at home (or for one of our challenges...more info to follow!). Consider stopping by to see what is available!
Each year, I try to relate all of the concepts and components of learning to a yearlong classroom theme. This year, our theme is: Be Amazing! This theme is based on a short, inspirational video by Robin Sharma, one of the world's most trusted leadership advisors. Check out the video below -- we will be watching this during our first week of classes!
You may also download and print your own copy of the poster to keep in your house. Just click on the image below. Hang it on a bedroom door, bulletin board, or refrigerator. And remember -- Be Amazing!
Happy New Year and welcome back to school! I'm really looking forward to meeting you all very soon at our OPEN HOUSE this August 27 from 6:00 - 7:30 in Room 21 at Pinewood Elementary. This will be our official Open House. Until then, to help you and your family get in the "New Years" mood, check out this fun video from Kid President!
