Family Communication 5/1
05/01/2020
Welcome to May! In addition to being May 1st, it is also May Day and International Workers Day. Check out today’s art and SEL collaboration to see how you can thank a superhero/essential worker. Thank you to Ms. Wade-Kuzwayo and Ms. Doolas for this creative collaboration! Here are some additional ideas for showing your gratitude. This ties in seamlessly with the opportunity shared yesterday about creating messages and artwork for an essential worker safe space at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. Families looking to contribute to these spaces can create uplifting and inspiring cards, messages, and artwork. Finished products can be mailed to the school or dropped in the Castro family mail slot located at 3839 Howard Street within our neighborhood.

In a situation like the one we find ourselves in, there is lots of information communicated with grown-ups, but often not enough directly shared with kids. Here is a link to a video that is intended to change that. Thank you for sharing with your child(ren).
