Please remember that if your child is sick, with any type if illness, please keep them at home. If you have any questions, you can call the school nurse at 610 – 268-6900. Speaking of our school nurse, Mrs. Body needs to know if your child has been vaccinated and what date they were vaccinated. Kindly send that information to pbody@kcsd.org

.

Remember masks are still required on the bus and in school! Please make sure your child has a mask that fits their face, covers their nose and mouth and does not slip down. We highly recommend that you send your child with an extra mask in their backpacks incase their mask gets wet or dirty during the day.

Finally, if your child has been identified as a close contact over the holiday, please keep them at home and contact Mrs. Body after 8:00am. She will help you determine the next steps.

We are looking forward to the return of the students in the New Year. 2022 is going to be a great year and we are so happy to be partnering with such amazing New Garden Families!

Have a great evening!

Este es un mensaje de la Sra. Weaver:

Buenas noches familias de New Garden,

Espero que hayan tenido unas maravillosas vacaciones y hayan podido descansar y relajarse. Tengo algunos recordatorios para usted esta noche. Regresamos a la escuela mañana, 3 de enero de 2022. Por favor recuerde que si su hijo está enfermo, con cualquier tipo de enfermedad, déjelo en casa. Si tiene alguna pregunta, puede llamar a la enfermera de la escuela al 610-268-6900. Hablando de la enfermera de nuestra escuela, la Sra. Body necesita saber si su hijo ha sido vacunado y en qué fecha. Por favor envíe esa información a pbody@kcsd.org

¡Recuerde que todavía se requieren máscaras en el autobús y en la escuela! Asegúrese de que su hijo tenga una máscara que le quede bien a la cara, que le cubra la nariz y la boca y que no se resbale. Recomendamos encarecidamente que envíe a su hijo con una máscara adicional en sus mochilas en caso de que se moje o se ensucie durante el día.

Finalmente, si su hijo ha sido identificado como un contacto cercano durante las vacaciones, por favor déjelo en casa y comuníquese con la Sra. Body después de las 8:00 am. Ella lo ayudará a determinar los próximos pasos.

Esperamos el regreso de los estudiantes en el Año Nuevo. ¡2022 será un gran año y estamos muy felices de asociarnos con nuevas familias de New Garden!

¡Que tengan una buena tarde!

Please read this important message from Mrs. Weaver.

December 2021

Dear New Garden Families,

I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying this festive time of year.

As our students head into a break from school, I want to provide a few suggestions.

Winter vacation gives students a break from coming to school, but it doesn’t need to be a break from learning and growing. By taking a little time to read every day, your children will maintain the skills that they have worked hard to build this fall. Also talking with you is a good way to encourage your child’s curiosity and intellect. I understand that many children would prefer to play video games or watch TV, but research tells us that too much screen time is not good for them. Board games, music, puzzles and time playing outside are good alternatives when it is time to turn off the TV and put the tablet down.

Like all parents, you want the best for your child. You can help him/her be happy and healthy with these tips:

  1. Make sure your child reads every day, 15 or 20 minutes is enough.
  2. Limit screen time, no more than 2 hours a day. Encourage children to play other kinds of games and to play with each other.
  3. Talk to your children; having conversations with parents and other caring adults will help their brains and their self-esteem grow.

One more reminder: I know that many of our students will receive wonderful gifts over the holidays. If you are planning to let your child bring his expensive, new, wonderful toy to school, I urge you to reconsider. It would be terribly sad if something happened to his/her wonderful new thing.

I hope you have a peaceful and joyous time with your family and friends this holiday season.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Weaver

Principal
