Dear Marrs Families,
We did it! We have conquered the first two weeks of school! Give yourselves a pat on the back, because you deserve it!
Getting back into a routine is hard! But, we’ve all been there!
Our teachers here at Marrs Elementary have done an excellent job establishing routines and using consistency in their classrooms and we hope that you will partner with us in establishing routines at home!
Sometimes, it’s just not easy to get up and get going in the morning. For young children who are still developing the ability to cope with new situations, preparing to have a successful day at school can feel overwhelming. Yet, there are tactics parents can use to help their kids leave the house feeling healthy, confident, and energized. You can reduce your child’s anxiety and help them feel empowered for success by establishing a predictable routine. Following a schedule each day makes children feel safer and happier, which often leads to better behavior and cooperation. When they know what to expect, and what’s expected of them, kids feel more comfortable and confident about what lies ahead.
We have a lot of events coming up, so we hope that you will check our Facebook page to look at all of those dates! Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions!
