CONVERSATIONS & COFFEE - DECEMBER 13th
Please join us for Conversation & Coffee on December 13th at South School. Our conversation will focus on the work of Dr. Carol Dweck and her book, Mindset. Mindset is a simple idea discovered by Dr. Dweck, Stanford University psychologist, as she reflected upon years of research on achievement and success. The conversation will be facilitated by Sarah Rabin, Catherine Wang, and Kelly Zonghetti. RSVP here to attend this session.
December 13th from 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Crawford Learning Center
Each year we participate in a number of emergency drills that are designed to help staff and students respond in case of an emergency. This week we will implement a lockdown drill. During a building lockdown drill, we stay inside the classroom, turn the lights off, and sit quietly in an area that is not highly visible.
Please feel free to take some time to talk with your child about the types of emergencies that could require a school to lockdown:
- The presence or possible presence of an intruder
- A dangerous situation taking place in the vicinity of the school
- A hazardous spill or other type of accident that could pose a threat to the safety of staff and students.
Lockdown drills can cause anxiety for younger students. Taking the time to talk with your child at home could help to alleviate unnecessary anxiety. Please feel free to contact Kelly Zonghetti, South School Principal, should you have any additional questions or concerns.
