Updates from the Principal

 

Dear Parents/Guardians: Happy New Year! As we kick off 2019, it is a wonderful time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for. Each and every day, I feel extremely fortunate to be working within such a supportive community filled with a fine group of talented students and staff members!

As we move into the New Year, we will be working with your children to not only help them to set new goals, but to also help them to build their stamina and perseverance for completing assignments. In order for children to be successful in the 21st Century, they will need to develop work habits that will help them acquire the GRIT they will need in order to stay committed to seeing learning tasks to their full completion, while at the same time striving to reach their highest academic potential.

At times, we find students have finished their assignments, however more effort could have been put forth when completing the learning tasks. We need to help children to develop a sense of pride in completing their work, rather than just working to complete assignments.

To teach children how to persevere, we need to help them to appreciate that success comes when we don’t give up and we put our ALL into what we are working to accomplish; when we work hard to meet a goal, most times we achieve it! We can model this by pointing out the goals we set for ourselves in order help our children see how our commitment and hard work really do pay off for the greater good.

It is also important for children to understand that no one is perfect and that making errors is very much a part of learning. We need to feel confident in pointing out the mistakes that we make and in order to help our children to see how to work through challenges or obstacles to make improvements.

To motivate your child to put forth his/her best effort, you can use positive comments such as:

* “I know you can do it if you keep trying.”

* “I am impressed with how hard you are working; you never give up!”

* “I love to see the effort you are putting forth; your hard work is sure to pay off!”

Further, help your child to identify successful people around them, pointing out not only their fine accomplishments, but also the hard work and discipline it took to make it possible.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me by emailing me at JNeumeye@trumbullps.org or by calling 203-452-4433.

Happy New Year!
Mrs. Neumeyer
