The Harrison County Family Resource Centers will sponsor a Food Drive on Thursday, November 20th. This is a great opportunity to teach our children in the importance of giving to others during the holiday season.

We are asking for students to contribute a non-perishable food item (canned meat/fish, canned soup, pasta, peanut butter, cereal, oatmeal, canned vegetables or canned fruit) to be donated to the Harrison County Food Pantry.

Students can bring their donations to the school and put them in the “Food Drive” container in the front foyer.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS BUILD STRONG MINDS AND STRONG RELATIONSHIPS

We know you want the best for your child, and we invite you to begin a parenting practice which will benefit your child the rest of his or her life—reading with your child at home 20 minutes a day from birth through elementary school.
Children whose parents read with them learn to read well and are typically proficient readers by 3rd grade. It’s as simple as that!
It also summarizes how your school-age child learns to read. And you’ll find suggestions of books to enjoy with your child during the early years of elementary school.

The ABCs of Reading With Your Child
A. Aloud
Read aloud 20 minutes a day with your child. From birth to age five, this enjoyable activity provides 600 hours of essential pre-literacy preparation before entering school. Once in school, it’s essential to continue the read-aloud habit throughout the elementary school years.

B. Basic Knowledge Before Entering Kindergarten
At age five your child may:

* listen to a book and retell the beginning, middle and end
* know 12-15 upper case letters (A, B, C)
* know 12-15 lower case letters (a, b, c)
* know sounds of 12-15 letters
* recite 6-10 nursery rhymes
* know some print concepts (e.g., reading moves left to right, meaning comes from words, pictures help meaning)
* speak in complete sentences
* print first name using upper and lower case letters.

C. Conversations
Have frequent conversations with your child. Reading is about language. Immerse your child in it. Talk often. Listen, and ask your child questions that require more than a one or two word response.

While the holiday season can be the “most wonderful time of the year,” it can also be stressful. Here are some tips to help you to cope with the stressors of the season!

* Potluck style: instead of hosting the full dinner/meal, ask others to bring a dish to share. Just remember to coordinate so you don’t end up with a table full of des-serts!

* Stick to a budget: homemade gifts, a family gift exchange or donating to a charity are great ways to celebrate the holidays without spending a lot of money

* Self care: Get or stay on track with a healthy diet and exercise

* Organize and Prioritize: keep track of your holiday parties and prioritize which ones you will attend.
