NEW INFORMATION THIS WEEK
BREAKFAST DURING MINIMUM DAYS
On minimum days, when school is out at noon, from March 17 to 24 breakfast will be served BEFORE school. During the school day we will serve “brunch,” but because we only have one break on these short days we will provide breakfast before school. Students can stop by the cafe from 8:00 to 8:30 am to pick up /eat breakfast.
SCHOOL PRIDE DAY-WEAR GREEN
Tomorrow is St Patrick's day, and our School Pride Day for the month. Your child can “wear lots of green” to school on Friday, March 17th. School District dress code rules apply. Be sure to tell your student there is no pinching on St Patrick’s day.
APPROPRIATE SHOES FOR SCHOOL
Wearing shoes that offer support and protection for the foot to school is important. We encourage students to wear athletic shoes to school to prevent injuries when playing, especially during PE class. Recently, there has been an increase in injuries due to students wearing crocs, (fashion) boots and/ or sandals. Although these shoes are comfortable/ fashionable, they are not appropriate for school. These types of shoes do not offer support, protection or ease of movement during recess play or PE. See your child’s PE day so you can ensure on these days they are in tennis shoes. But again, we would prefer tennis shoes to be worn by students everyday.
Monday: Grades 2 and 3
Tuesday: Grades 5 and 3
Wednesday: Grade 6
Thursday: Grades 4 and 1
Friday: Grades TK, K and 1
COVID AT- HOME TESTS
All staff and students in the Santa Barbara Unified School District will be provided free at-home COVID tests for use at the end of spring break, before returning to school. Please look for District communication regarding the use of the tests, including date for administration. Although it is not mandatory to return to school, your use is appreciated to ensure all students return healthy on March 27. Tests will be sent home with students as early as today.

Please look for sign-ups for your individual student’s parent conference from your classroom teacher.

Is your child self-critical and easily frustrated?
Is your child self-critical and easily frustrated? Do they feel uncomfortable with new challenges or particularly tricky tasks? If so, your child may be a perfectionist. To many people, this doesn’t seem like such a bad thing. After all, what’s wrong with setting high standards and pushing yourself to improve? In reality, perfectionism can be unhealthy and damaging, especially for young children.
Perfectionism appears to result from a combination of inborn tendencies and environmental factors. These can include excessive praise or demands from parents, teachers or trainers, observation of adults modeling perfectionist tendencies, and from parental love being conditional upon the child's exemplary achievement.
Perfectionism is the belief that everything must be perfect all the time. A perfectionist sets impossible goals, and feels crushed when they are not achieved. Alternatively, someone who strives to do their best sets challenging but achievable goals.Those with perfectionistic tendencies are often resistant to change, believing these tendencies are a strength. Digging deeper, they find that perfectionism contributes to a number of problems, including procrastination, stress, anxiety, and depression.
The "What is Perfectionism" Handout explains the difference between perfectionism and a healthy level of hard work, along with other helpful information.
