Summer Construction at Village Elementary

This summer, our school has been fortunate to have some needed construction projects under way.  You will soon notice new windows, a new roof and a new floor in the JU cafeteria.  These projects were all part of our District's capital project.  As the school year draws near, the construction is moving into final phases.  In about a week, while some small construction work will continue, the state of our parking lots, sidewalks and hallways will be clear and ready for the students and staff to return.  I look forward to seeing many of you at visitation day on Wednesday, August 27th.  

Please bring your family photo to hang that day, if you would like.

Books That Boost Self-Esteem

This list of books is a nice approach to help our children when they are facing something new in their life, overcoming a challenge, learning accept a new situation, etc... The list includes pictures of the books' covers, a summary for each book and they are leveled by K-3, 4-6, 7-8 and 9-12 grades.  

From International Reading Association (Books that Build Self Esteem Blog Post)

Feeling good about oneself is not something that always comes naturally. After all, each day may be filled with challenges and trying times as well as joyous moments. Still, if one has the right kind of perspective on life’s ups and downs and a solid set of coping skills, even the most difficult times can be navigated smoothly. This week’s reviews from the International Reading Association’s Children’s Literature and Reading Special Interest Group (CL/R SIG) focus on books that boost self-esteem. After all, everyone needs a good shot of positivity every now and then.
