Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Share a method for putting worries aside - The pandemic has increased teens' stress and anxiety. Some stress can be motivating, but persistent stress is a problem. If your teen is a worrier, they may have trouble concentrating. Have them try this trick. Every time a worry pops into their mind while they’re studying, have them write it down and then go back to studying. At the end of the study session, they can review their worries. If they still worry them, they can start working on solutions. https://bit.ly/3koGn1O

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Inner strength outpowers negative influence - Celebrities and "influencers" can affect children's goals and how they see themselves, and not always in positive ways. Help your child develop their own ideas about who they are and wants to be. Find ways for them to explore their strengths and talents. To inspire their confidence in their own abilities, resist providing ready answers. If they are stuck on a problem, point out resources they can use to find the solution themselves. https://bit.ly/3f1dfNc

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Teens love to argue. But you don't have to respond - Debating uses your teen's reasoning skills. That's great for their academic success. But constant arguments at home can be maddening! When a discussion is heading toward an argument, don't take the bait if your teen says something provocative. Just say, "that's interesting" and walk away. Save trying to get your point across for a calmer moment. If your teen is looking for a sparring match, they’re probably not listening to you anyway. https://bit.ly/35u15cv

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Look for ways to turn 'no' into 'yes' - Does your child use their blossoming reasoning skills to argue with you? Keep in mind that the word 'no' sparks arguments. So, rather than saying "No, you can't watch TV," say "Yes, you can watch it when you have finished your assignment." It's also important not to offer choices when only one action will do. For example, don't ask your child if she's ready for dinner. Say, "Dinner is ready. Please come to the table." https://bit.ly/2IFndr6

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: There's more than one way to study for tests - Your teen's tests will come in a variety of formats. Different study methods can help them prepare. For essay tests, have your teen put the main ideas they’re studying into question form and practice writing answers in complete sentences. For short-answer tests, learning facts in groups rather than one at a time is helpful. For problem-solving tests, daily practice in setting up problems and doing calculations is the key. https://bit.ly/2UmGhNI

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: How to boost social skills while social distancing - Many parents are wondering how their children can develop social skills during a pandemic. But many of these important social skills can be taught at home. Role-play being friendly, honest and a good listener with your child. When you play games together, teach them to be a good sport. You can promote skills like cooperation and compromise by doing projects together, such as making a family dinner. https://bit.ly/3lpU5Tr

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Make time for fun, relaxing reading - Helping with schoolwork isn't the only way to support your child's education. One of the best things you can do is to encourage them to read for fun and relaxation. Print out a story they can read in the bathtub. Cozy up under a blanket and read by flashlight. To find more time, limit recreational screen time and offer reading as a replacement. The first two weeks may be hard, but it will get easier. https://bit.ly/3p47AKO

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Encourage your teen to create history time lines - Time lines are a great study tool. They help students see how one thing led to another and put ideas into context. To make a time line, your teen should first set boundaries. When did the event begin and end? Then they should identify contributing events, and summarize key points, such as who, what and where. Encourage them to add pictures and to use color to distinguish different factors in the event. https://bit.ly/3k4RpsQ

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Is too much togetherness fraying family nerves? - Current circumstances mean families are spending more time at home together. To keep time with your teen positive, involve them in planning family activities. Then try to stay in the moment. Imagine you are enjoying a family walk. Then you start grilling your teen about their math grade. What do you think they will say the next time you suggest doing something together? Save criticism for a time when you can talk in private. https://bit.ly/2U0TknJ

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Talk about what makes a decision wise - As kids grow older, they have to learn how to make good choices. Help your child learn by making them aware of the choices they make every day. Discuss what makes a choice responsible, such as how it affects others and whether it helps your child achieve a goal or meet an expectation. Talk to them about decisions you've made and what factors you considered while making them. https://bit.ly/3l5wGGB

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Good feelings, not bribes, motivate students - Should you offer your child incentives to do schoolwork? Don't promise money or material things in advance, say teachers. Instead, respond to hard work with something that helps your child feel good about themselves. Offer specific praise that lets them know exactly what they’ve done right. Other appropriate rewards might include special time with you, or letting your child select a movie for the family to watch. https://bit.ly/3557L0n

Parent Connection Tip of the Day: Encourage appreciation by thanking your child - The best way to get your child to do what you want is to set an example. So, to help them learn to appreciate the people and things around them, begin by thanking them. You can thank your child for listening, showing good manners, setting the table or working hard on schoolwork. If you haven't thanked your child by bedtime, do it then. They'll fall asleep feeling good about themselves and you. https://bit.ly/38mD6h4

So I’m two days we have received two emails about two different people in Kellam that have tested positive for COVID-19 over a 4 day time span this is in addition to other emails about people being positive, the rates and numbers are going up around the nation and you all still can’t figure out anything before the rest of the kids go back this week????
With the recent changes in curriculum, and the amount of seniors eligible to graduate early this school year, is there anything planned for them as far as a ceremony? I know some students are planning to join the military and likely will not be here to walk with their class in a June ceremony...if there even is a traditional ceremony. Is it possible something special can be done for these students receiving their diploma in January?

What is the plan to get the rest of our kids back to school?
Teacher Connection Tip of the Day: Schoology is a great tool that allows parents to see what is happening in their child's class, however, when each of you set it up a little different from each other, and when each of you utilize it differently, it creates a mass of confusion. It would help if you could standardize your basic use of Schoology so parents like me with three kids at three different schools do not have to try and interpret the nuances of 12 different teacher variations to a single tool just to help my students stay on track.
