Parents of Amelia Earhart,

This upcoming week (Nov. 23rd) we will have the regular school hours on Monday and Tuesday (8:40 – 1:40).  We will not have school Wednesday – Friday due to Thanksgiving Break.  Have a safe and fun time! Occasionally I like to share some parenting tidbits. I often talk about reading daily with each child as a way to talk, connect, and improve reading comprehension.  I continue to endorse that!  However, I wanted to share the importance of an 8-second hug with your kids.  During this time of social distancing at school and in society, I think it is even more important that students receive that affection at home.  Here is a link talking about the benefits:  https://ksltv.com/414821/kids-under-pressure-the-stress-aleviating-power-of-a-parents-hug/?

Padres de Amelia Earhart,

Esta semana (Nov. 23) tendremos el horario escolar regular los lunes y martes (8:40 – 1:40). No tendremos escuela de miércoles a viernes debido a las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias. ¡Que pases un rato seguro y divertido! De vez en cuando me gusta dar algunas cositas sobre la crianza de los hijos. A menudo hablo de la lectura a diario con cada niño como una forma de hablar, conectar y mejorar la comprensión lectora. ¡Sigo respaldando eso! Sin embargo, quería compartir la importancia de un abrazo de 8 segundos con sus hijos. Durante este tiempo de distanciamiento social en la escuela y en la sociedad, creo que es aún más importante que los alumnos reciban ese cariño en casa. Aquí hay un enlace que habla sobre los beneficios: https://ksltv.com/414821/kids-under-pressure-the-stress-aleviating-power-of-a-parents-hug/?
