    Skyway's Garden is in need of volunteers

    Thank you Girl Scout Troop #1817

    and Summer Gardening Volunteers Needed

    Skyway would like to give a huge thank you to Girl Scout Troop 1817, who did spring clean up and planting of our school garden. It looks beautiful! Here is a picture of some students using the garden to collect math data while enjoying the sights and smells.

    We are now looking for families who are interested in helping out a week at the garden. Your family can weed, smell and eat the tasty fruits and veggies that are ready to be harvested! Bring them home to your family or donate them to the food bank. We just want you to enjoy the garden, get your hands dirty and connect with each other. For more information, email Mrs. Behrens or Ms. O'Brien.

Ideas For Families

  • Do I Look Weak?

     
    Teachers and parents sometimes express the following worry: “When I calmly delay a conversation or a consequence instead of squashing defiance (or other frustrating misbehaviors), do I look weak? If I don’t bring the wrath in that moment, will kids or adults who are watching think I’m a pushover?”
     
    No. No, they won’t.
     
    Imagine this: You’re in a restaurant enjoying a lovely meal. But some lady at the table off to your right is having the opposite of a lovely meal. And she’s bringing the wrath. She’s getting louder. She wants to see the manager. Somebody is going to pay for this! She gets more and more red faced and threatening.
     
    As you watch her, what is going through your mind? She’s so powerful? She’s so impressive? You wish you could rant and rave like that?
     
    Probably not. You’re probably thinking she ought to control herself and calm down. You’re probably the opposite of impressed.
     
    Self-control is actually a form of strength. There is much more power in the ability to keep our cool than there is in yelling, threatening, and lecturing.
     
    Some people even repeat this phrase to themselves in moments when they need to remember to remain calm: “Anger and frustration feed misbehavior. Anger and frustration feed misbehavior…”
     
    Put your mind at ease. You don’t lose an ounce of power when you choose not to yell or “drop the hammer” in the heat of the moment — you gain power. By staying calm and creating a more thoughtful response, you are enhancing your authority as an adult/leader. You can do this!
