Dear Grade 1 parents we would like to ask for your help in 2 things please:
Pick up in the afternoons: Please can we ask you to collect your child from the ES Cafeteria. We know it is sometimes easier and quicker to meet your child in the hallway, however for our children, the hallways are so busy. It is hard for them to walk through with so many parents waiting for children. We really want you to support us by going all the way into the cafeteria. Please do not take your child as they walk along the hallway or near the library. If your ayis or drivers meet your child, please tell them this too.
Contacting other parents: For things that happen in school, we as a school deal with this. We follow up with children at school, for behaviours we see at school. We also give children consequences for behaviours and support them to ensure their behaviour matches our expectations. Please DO NOT contact other children’s parents about their behaviour. We do that. Our rules of Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Respectful guide how we talk to children.
As a team, I, along with Catie (our counsellor), the teachers and teaching assistants, know that all children make mistakes with their behaviour. We want the children to learn from their mistakes. We want them to recognise when they have done something wrong and try not to do it again.
If you have concerns about other children’s behaviour please let the homeroom teacher know, please do not contact the child’s parents directly. Many thanks for your support with this.
