    grateful

    This year, the SHE Student Council sponsored our Food Drive for Thanksgiving. Due to the generosity of our families and staff of Sheridan Hills Elementary School, we were able to give groceries and gift cards to many families of our students. We are grateful for your contributions to our school community. Just prior to our Thanksgiving food drive, we were also able to make donations to help the victims of the recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico, due to your thoughtfulness, thank you! In addition, several kindergarten and first grade classes, as well as students in Mrs. Christianson’s class made Christmas cards which Spirit Airlines will distribute to schools in Puerto Rico.

    SEL

    Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. (CASEL.org)  At Sheridan Hills we are planning to promote SEL through classroom lessons, Character Education and School Wide initiatives promoted by our Student Council members. 

    Please check our school website under School Counselor for links parents can use to learn more about Social Emotional Learning.   Also the link to the Anti-Bullying policy is located at this site.

  • What Does Respect Look Like?

    Posted by Melissa McAbee on 12/23/2016

    respect

    Your child's daily dealing with adults and kids alike will be more pleasant if he/she speaks and acts respectfully.  Try these tips for helping him/her learn respect.

    Respectful Replies: Think about something that you and your youngster disagree on (say, whether his or her video game time should be limited).  Model having a respectful discussion about it.  You might say this his or her brain and body are growing and that he needs to run and play to stay healthy.  Then suggest a response, such as, "I want to be healthy, but I love video games." Have him or her brainstorm other situations where people have different opinions but still speak to each other with respect.

    Everyday Acts:  When you mow the lawn or clean up after your dog, you can teach your youngster about respect for neighbors.  Explain that keeping your neighborhood clean and neat makes it nice for everyone.  Ask him or her to think of other respectful things neighbors should do.  If you share an apartment laundry room, he or she might say that you respect neighbors' time by removing your clothes when they're done so that others get to use the washers and dryers.
