PostHeaderIcon Recap: What a Difference Discipline Makes! This Week: What a Difference Attitude Makes!!!

Remember discipline (not punishment) is what God wants us to do to teach our children.  Remember your goal is to raise your kids UP, teach them UP, grow them UP–towards that positive image you have of them when they are ready to leave home.  Also remember It’s now or never—you don’t have forever!  If you want a happier family, discipline makes a big difference!

I hope the 5 day plan went well!
Day 1- Reflect on your own concept od discipline an how it came to be.
Day 2- Evaluate how you  “discipine,” then make changes as necessary.
Day 3- Fous on financial discipline, especially as it applies to your kids.
Day 4- Consider discipline as it applies to the health and fitness of
everyone in your family.
Day 5- Focus on striving for a more disciplined spiritual life for your family..

Thursday we will be learning about:

PostHeaderIcon Opt-In Text Messanging Program – Now Available

Parents,
The school is starting an opt-in program where you can receive text messages with important reminders on school days. This app will keep you informed of school closings and snow days as well! We promise that it will be used sparingly throughout the school year!

To opt-in, text @arainb to 719-297-4591, and hit send. You will get a text back asking you for your full name. After that, you will be sent the link to set up your account.

This number is a general one for the school. Your child’s teacher may set up their own account for reminders that are specific to you or your class. They will hand out information at the school for that.

You can opt-out of the program at any time and still receive important information through Facebook, our website, our newsletters, and email.

If you are a parent that does not check social media or emails everyday, or you like to have morning reminders – we really do encourage you to sign up for this text messaging program.

 

Thank you,

Renee Green

Director

PostHeaderIcon Recap: What a Difference a Dad Makes!

A Fathers Influence leaves an Indelible Imprint in our children’s lives after they grow up!!!
Dad’s get involved with your family. Lead your family with motivation and NOT intimidation! Remember you are the protector, the provider that leads the family in whatever direction you lead it. Lead it well, lead it with positiveness, and with wisdom.

Here is the 5 day plan:
Day 1: Dads focus on yourself! Golf, fish or do something for yourself.
Day 2: Project a warm open loving attitude around your home and family.
Day 3: Make it obvious to your children how much you love and appreciate their mother.
Day 4: Focus on how you relate to your children in terms of their behavior.
Day 5: Set your mind on an image of what you want your kids to “be” when they’re ready to leave home as adults.

Paul Jones thank you for coming and telling your testimony!
Your insight as a Dad and what you have learned from the class was very knowledgeable.
Thank you!

Picture Dayjpg

Parents,

Picture day for your student is this week! Heather Sams is our photographer and she takes wonderful keepsake photos of your little ones. She has sent out an email explaining the process of picture taking this year. It will be different than prior years. Heather is going to take pictures of all of our students and then send you an email with a link to your child’s personal portrait gallery. You can choose your package and order online!

Please do not opt out of her emails if you want any chance to order photos. They will be the only ones you get concerning school pictures.

School pictures will be the Thursday or Friday your child attends school. If your child is a M-F student, his/her picture will be taken Thursday, Sept 25.  Afternoon students will be photographed as well.

We also need a few volunteers that can help in their child’s classroom that day bringing children back and forth to the photographer.  If you can help, please let Renee Green know as soon as possible. We appreciate our volunteers!

Thank you and have a wonderful week!
