Some of my most treasured childhood memories revolve around books. That might be because my mother is the biggest book lover I know. She’s a retired school librarian and even in her retirement she works part time at a small, independent book store. One of my favorite memories was curling up in my parent’s bed while my mom read “The Hobbit” to my brother and me. I can still recall the immense feeling of pride of getting my own library card and being able to write my name on it by myself.
The kindness and generosity of our Day School families never cease to amaze me, and this past North Texas Giving Day is no exception! In just 24 short hours, our incredible families and friends raised $51,061! We are blown away.
When I was a teacher at The Day School, a common topic of discussion at my parent-teacher conferences were “meltdowns”. Parents wanted to know how we handled meltdowns in the classroom and how these same strategies could be applied at home. For my first newsletter of the year, I would love to give you a brief overview of our philosophy of behavior management and some practical tips you can try at home.
