The idea is for parents, our kindergartners, and our families to meet, get to know each other, and stay connected outside of the classroom! If you have any questions, please reach out to Elise Crumpacker and Christine McClure, our Kinder Connect PTSA Co-Chairs at newcastlekinderconnect@gmail.com.

New Issaquah School District E-News Format Coming
 

In case you missed this notification from the Issaquah School District...

New E-News Format Coming...
Please Re-Subscribe to Keep Receiving Issaquah School District & Newcastle Elementary News!

The Issaquah School District is transitioning to a new format called Blackboard for our E-News! We are making this switch to help us comply with the American Disabilities Act requirements for accessibility and to enable some features that help us to increase our ability to send messages translated into several languages. When we make the shift, we will no longer have email addresses for people who do not have a child at one of our schools.

If you still want to receive E-news for the District or a particular school, please subscribe NOW by going to https://www.issaquah.wednet.edu/news/ENews. There you may select which E-News messages you wish to subscribe to! Thank you so much for continuing to stay connected to us, we appreciate you!

SUMMER LEARNING LINKS.  We want students to relax and enjoy the summer.

Of course we also want students to keep reading good books.  In August, if you would like to get your student back in the learning frame of mind, or feel your child would benefit from a little academic preparation, here are some online resource that you can use over the summer.

 

The Gift of Failure: Fostering Intrinsic Motivation and Resilience in Kids by national keynote and author, Jessica Lahey

Available on ParentWiser.org/watch-online

In today’s culture, do we coddle our kids enough? Too much? Jessica Lahey  summarizes the current research on autonomy-supportive parenting and teaching, competence, rewards, praise, and failure, and gives us advice on how to allow students to succeed over the long term. Join our community book read starting now, and help bring about this cultural change! For parents of K-12.

NEW WATCH ONLINE!
