tips_on_talking_to_kids_about_tragedies

Our hearts go out to the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. We want to reassure everyone in our school community as best we can and let you know that we do have a safe schools plan and emergency protocols in place. We practice the required lockdown, earthquake, disaster and fire drills at Wolf Canyon School each quarter. In addition we hold staff ‘table-top’ trainings at the start of the school year about Emergency Response to various scenarios. I have attached a link above of some very practical tips for parents when discussing tragic events with your children. Keep in mind that much depends on the age of the child.

Please join me and our PTA for our quarterly Principal Coffee Chat on Tuesday, December 18 at 9:00 am. This is a great time for you to meet other parents, discuss topics regarding our school and enjoy a cup of coffee.
The PTA general meeting is also on Tuesday, December 18 at 7:00 pm in the auditorium. Childcare will be provided. Come out and support our PTA and our school.

Friday, December 21 is the last day to clip those boxtops! This is a great way to earn easy money for the school. Friday, December 21 is also “Charger Day”.

Student Council is sponsoring a Pajama Drive for the “Turning the Hearts Center.” Donations of new or clean (slightly worn) pajamas are being accepted through Friday, December 21. Let’s help those in need.

Friday is the last day of the 2nd quarter. The 3rd quarter begins on Tuesday, January 15.

The Wolf Canyon GLEE Club will be on the KUSI’s “Songs of the Holiday Season” program which airs sometime during the evening on December 24 and throughout the day on December 25.

Mark your calendars for a very important presentation on Internet Safety, Tuesday, January 29 at 6:30 pm in our school auditorium. Also, that same week our Science and Technology Night for grades K-2 will be on Thursday, January 31 and Friday, February 1 for students in grades 3-6 both beginning at 6:30 pm.

Donate your discarded or old unused cell phones during the month of January. This is a service learning project sponsored by our K-Kids. Did you know that for every new cell phone bought another must be discarded. Cells 4 Cures recycles these phones to keep them out of our landfills and donates the value of the phones to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Join us in being good stewards of our planet.
