Can you believe we are almost at “mid-year” already? I know the time has flown by for us here at
the school. There are many holidays being celebrated over the next few weeks: Kwanzaa, Hanukah, and Christmas to name a few. We always enjoy this time of year because we get to experience the season through the eyes of the children. It is a wonderful time to reinforce the value of kindness and caring. Seasonal programs allow the students to experience other
cultural celebrations, make public presentations, and build up their confidence while allowing the
parents and community yet another opportunity to break out the cameras, smart phones and digital
recorders to record those special moments for posterity.
The holidays can unfortunately also be stressful for many. It can make us miss those that are away
just a little bit more as well. Please know that we at Lucas are all here to support and assist any of you that are finding the holidays particularly difficult this year. Give us a call and ask to speak to either an administrator or a counselor. Just let us know and we will gladly utilize the skills and
resources we have available to us to assist you in finding the comfort and joy of the season.
The teachers do an excellent job working to keep academics a priority during this festive time of year. Here are ways that you can keep the fires of learning lit during the holiday season:
Read a good holiday story together with your family.
After watching the holiday programming that runs this time of year, discuss them with
your kids and hear what they have to say about the messages.
Explain and discuss how and why you may support a local charity
This is an excellent time to have your children write letters to loved ones as well as write
thank you notes.
Holiday baking offers lots of opportunities for families to work on math skills.
When you shop let the kids help to plan the list and do the check out.
Younger children can do things like sort plastic containers and their lids as well as
It is also a perfect time to just sit, talk and love each other. Hugs are always the right
size and the price is right!
All of us here at André Lucas Elementary School wish each of you a safe, joyous and peaceful
holiday season with those you love.

Continuous School Improvement
School improvement is a constant focus at Andre' Lucas Elementary. Each month we will include information from the School Improvement Team also known as the CSI Team.
