Students wrapped up units and celebrated their learning this week. Middle School joined us for a House Team Event Thursday. Students in PreK-Grade 8 rotated through activities, and had a great time together! We had the joy of winter celebrations together in class or grade-level parties and students entertained us at the Winter Assembly. Santa Claus even made a special detour to CAC on his camel. He’d heard many of our students don’t have chimneys and wanted to be sure they had a chance to visit. Thank you to the many parents who helped out this week and throughout the year! We will return to school on January 8. After-school activities will also resume that day.

Happy Holidays from the Counseling Office

There is so much going on this time of year that it can feel very hectic. This short article will help to put things into perspective while reminding us of some great parenting strategies.

 

The Day I Forgot How to Parent (And the Two Words that Brought Me Back)

 

Great Resource

Earlier in the year CAC had a showing of Screenagers which highlighted technology and the media effect on our children. Kids have to navigate so much these days and the unrealistic images that they are exposed to can impact how they view themselves. One way to combat the negative impact on self esteem is to choose entertainment that that has positive messages and positive role models for self-acceptance. What are some movies or TV shows that promote a positive body image?

 

Common Sense Media is a great resource developed to help kids (and adults) navigate the world of technology and media. Parent Concerns

Activities will resume directly after the winter break.

When students forget snack or lunch, they have a choice of juice/crackers or hot lunch. A ticket goes home and we ask for you to refund the costs the next day. Juice and crackers now cost 7 Le.
