Mid-Year Thoughts

Dear Parent/Guardians of the Hoyle Elementary School,

Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, and Tolerance are important qualities that I talk about often with both parents and with students. It is important to show our children what these qualities look like, sound like, and what they feel like in every daily life. Modeling can teach a child how to handle conflict, react to stress or fear, or interact with others. It also shows your child how to handle mistakes and recover from bad choices. These are important learning opportunities.

Children learn things in life by observing people as they grow up. They watch their parents and other adults around them, noting everything they say and do. Their minds are actively discovering their world and digesting lots of information.

The poem “Children Learn What They Live”, by Dorothy Law Nolte, highlights what children learn by the examples they are shown.

If a child lives with criticism, (s)he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, (s)he learns to fight.
If a child lives with fear, (s)he learns to be apprehensive.
If a child lives with pity, (s)he learns to feel sorry for himself.
If a child lives with ridicule, (s)he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with jealousy, (s)he learns what envy is.
If a child lives with shame, (s)he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with encouragement, (s)he learns to be confident.
If a child lives with tolerance, (s)he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with praise, (s)he learns to be appreciative.
If a child lives with acceptance, (s)he learns to love.
If a child lives with approval, (s)he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with recognition, (s)he learns that it is good to have a goal.
If a child lives with sharing, (s)he learns about generosity.
If a child lives with honesty and fairness, (s)he learns what truth and justice are.
If a child lives with security, (s)he learns to have faith in himself and in those about him.
If a child lives with friendliness, (s)he learns that the world is a nice place in which to live.
If you live with serenity, your child will live with peace of mind.
With what is your child living?


Children who practice Kindness, Respect, Responsibility, and Tolerance at an early age will realize how very special and needed those qualities are throughout their life. At home and at school, we are all Teachers.
Sincerely,
William J. Courville - Hoyle School Principal

Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

 

      The district has implemented a Wellness Policy. This policy is in place to ensure that our students are getting the proper amount of physical activity and are learning about healthy food choices.

         This policy will impact the types of foods that

we are allowed to be served in school. Only healthy snacks will be accepted for classroom celebrations. Please refrain from bringing in snacks such as cupcakes, chips, cakes, cookies, etc. Below is a list of acceptable healthy foods that will be allowed to be served in the classroom.

Another change is that only one celebration per month will be allowed in the classes.  Again, more information will be coming to you regarding when birthday celebrations will be in the classrooms.

Please see the list of suggested snacks below. Thank you for your understanding.
