This upcoming week (May 6-10) is a perfect time to show our teachers and aids how much we appreciate all of their dedication to our kids! PTO has organized a wonderful week of appreciation. Please see the flier for more information. 

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and one fundamental aspect of mental health is knowing how to identify and manage feelings. Here are some key points to consider when helping children to identify their feelings. 

Acknowledge Feelings: Let your child know it’s okay to have different feelings. 
Listen Carefully: Pay attention when your child talks about their emotions without judging or dismissing them. 

Label Emotions: Use simple words like happy, mad, angry, or frustrated to help them recognize how they feel. 

Encourage Expression: Support them in expressing their feelings through words, drawings, or talking to you.

Model Healthy Expression: Show how to handle emotions calmly and positively.

Create a Safe Space: Make sure your child feels comfortable sharing their feelings with you without fear or criticism. 

Seek Help if Needed: If your child struggles with emotions, explicitly teach them that it is a sign of strength to ask for help, not a sign of weakness. Consider talking to a professional for guidance.
