January Parent Quick Tips
Help Your Child Learn From Mistakes
This QuickTips brochure explains how parents can motivate their children to succeed by helping them learn from the mistakes and setbacks that everyone encounters.
It's only human to make mistakes.
What really counts is how we react
to our mistakes, and what we learn
from them. Parents are in the best
position to help children see, and capitalize
on the fact that every problem is also an
opportunity in disguise. It includes positive,
specific ideas parents can use with their
children at home.
Give a Book, Take a Book
The Free Book Exchange at
Westside Elementary is still available
for the 2019-2020 school year!
Do you have children’s books sitting around collecting dust? They are in great condition, bur your child doesn’t read them anymore? We have a solution! WES has a , “Give a Book, Take a Book” cart located outside the WES library. The concept is simple. Your child can exchange one of their old books for someone else’s old book. Keep the book forever or read it and exchange it again for another book. All books should be in good, gently used condition and be appropriate for kids. Pre-K – 4th graders are encouraged to participate! Happy Reading! Contact Mrs. Staggs to donate books or if you have any questions.
