For Week of Feb. 26, 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the Lunar New Year approaches, we are excited to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Dragon! This auspicious year symbolizes power, courage, and good fortune, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together and share in the rich traditions that make this festival so special.

 

We invite you and your family to join in the celebrations, whether it’s by trying out traditional recipes, sharing stories, or participating in any of the Lunar New Year activities we had planned with PTSA’s leadership. We hope to see you this Sunday 2/11 from noon to 2pm for our Jing Mei Lunar New Year Carnival organized our amazing PTSA! If you have time to volunteer and join the morning recess for lunar new year celebrations (We have activities for all Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Dragon dance on Wednesdays for the month of February!), please check out parentsquare: https://www.parentsquare.com/feeds/28758084?school_id=316 (See the two pics from our LNY recess fun!)

 

Let’s embrace the spirit of the Dragon by spreading positivity, strength, and harmony throughout our community. Wishing you and your loved ones a prosperous and joyful Lunar New Year!

 

Parking Lot Reminder: A review of our parking and drive-through for arrival and dismissal was conducted.  The feedback provided was that cars cannot be parked along the red fire lane.  We know parking is a challenge, but there is plenty of parking across the street.  Please also be aware that parking in a non-designated parking spot, or in a handicap spot, even just to run inside to drop off your student, is still not appropriate.  We are asking that everyone respect the designated handicap parking spots and take advantage of the parking across the street as needed so as to avoid the police department needing to come here to monitor and ticket individuals.  Please watch the following video to be aware of the different places you can park. Jing Mei Parking and Drive Through

 

Pre-School Update: As previously mentioned, PreK will now only be for the school day.  We have been working to partner Boys and Girls Club to provide before and after school care K-5, however, they are unable to do so for preschool.  Therefore, Right at Schools will now provide before and after school care for Preschool at Jing Mei. The plan is to provide before school care from 7:00 till school starts and after school care till 6:00.  More information will be provided once we finalize the plans.

 

(Repeated reminder) Racial, Equity, and Inclusion Meeting 2/15: You are invited to join our Racial, Equity, and Inclusion Team meeting on 2/15 (REI Team). For this meeting, we will use small group setting to get to know you and your family and plan actions with feedbacks.

Please RSVP here: Microsoft Forms (If you cannot make it to either or online option but still want to provide your input for our REI team, please feel free to fill out the last question at the form.)

 

Thank you for joining our time for our Principal Tea this week.

Here is the PPT that Dr. Taylor shared about how to support students’ well-being with technology

尊敬的家长/监护人:

随着农历新年的临近,我们兴奋地庆祝龙年的到来!这个吉祥的年份象征着力量、勇气和好运,这是我们社区团结一起,分享使这个节日如此特别的丰富传统的美好时机。

 

 

我们邀请您和您的家人参与庆祝活动,无论是尝试传统食谱,分享故事,还是参加我们与家长教师学生协会(PTSA)领导层一起策划的任何农历新年活动。我们希望在这个周日,2月11日中午到下午2点,能在我们的景美农历新年嘉年华上见到您!这个嘉年华是由我们了不起的PTSA组织的。如果您有时间志愿参与并加入早晨的农历新年庆祝活动(我们整个二月每周一、周二、周四、周五都有活动,以及周三的龙舞!),请查看Parentsquare: https://www.parentsquare.com/feeds/28758084?school_id=316

 

 

 

 

让我们拥抱龙的精神,在我们的社区中传播积极性、力量和和谐。祝愿您和您的亲人农历新年繁荣和欢乐!

 

 

 

停车场提醒:我们对学校的停车和接送车道进行了评估。反馈意见是,车辆不能停放在红色消防通道上。我们知道停车是个挑战,但街对面有足够的停车位。请注意,在非指定停车位或残疾人停车位上短暂停车,即使只是为了送学生进校,也是不恰当的。我们请求大家尊重指定的残疾人停车位,并在需要时利用街对面的停车位,以避免警察部门需要来此监督和开罚单。请观看以下视频了解您可以停车的不同位置。景美停车及驾车通过指南:Jing Mei Parking and Drive Through

 

 

 

学前班更新:如先前所提,现在学前班只会在上课日进行。我们一直在努力与男孩和女孩俱乐部合作,为K-5学生提供课前和课后看护服务,但他们无法为学前班提供此服务。因此,Right at Schools将为景美学前班提供课前和课后看护服务。计划将提供从早上7:00到上课时间的课前看护,以及到下午6:00的课后看护。一旦我们确定计划,将提供更多信息。

 

 

2 15 日种族、公平和包容会议:邀请您参加我们 2 月 15 日的种族、公平和包容团队会议(REI 团队)。在这次会议中,我们将使用小组设置来了解您和您的家人,并根据反馈计划行动。

For Week of Jan. 29, 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thanks to Mag, our PTSA Hospitality Director along with parent volunteers for helping us decorate the school with festive lanterns and streamers on Friday, our school is so ready to welcome the new year of dragon.

 

Thank you for over 30 parents/guardians’ participation for the January Principal Tea on the topic of Social Emotional Learning and emotion regulation Support on Thursday 1/25/2024.

 

Here is the PPT Dr. Taylor presented:  Jing Mei Emotion Regulation.pdf

 

You can see the RULER resource below:

Parent’s Guide to RULER (RULER is a social emotional learning curriculum we use for 3rd to 5th grade)

 

Charter Overview The Charter is the first piece of RULER that is introduced in the classroom. Its purpose is to create a positive culture and climate. It represents a collective agreed-upon norms for how everyone would like to be treated. There are three key questions to help guide this discussion and creation of this document.

1. How do we want to feel in school each day?

2. What will we do to have these feelings consistently and create a positive learning environment?

3. How will we prevent and manage conflict and unwanted feelings?

 

Mood Meter Overview The Mood Meter allows students to be aware of their emotions and gives them the vocabulary to identify how they feel. It asks students to recognize how they’re feeling.

 

Meta-Moment Overview A Meta-Moment provides students with a process for how to respond to their emotional situations along with strategies that will help support them to be their best self.

 

Blueprint Overview If a conflict does arise, a Blueprint supports the development of empathy and conflict resolution by coming up with the steps to resolving the conflict.

 

 

Sincerely,

Ms. Tan and Mr. Shelton

尊敬的家长/监护人:

感谢我们的 PTSA 接待和服务总监 Mag 和家长志愿者帮助我们在周五用节日灯笼和彩带装饰学校,我们的学校已经准备好迎接新的龙年。

以下是泰勒博士介绍的演讲材料:  Jing Mei Emotion Regulation.pdf

 

您可以在下面看到 RULER 资源

RULER家长指南(RULER是我们用于3至5年级的社会情感学习课程)

 

章程概述 章程是在课堂上介绍的第一件 RULER。其目的是创造积极的文化和氛围。它代表了每个人希望如何被对待的集体商定的规范。有三个关键问题有助于指导本文档的讨论和创建。

1. 我们每天在学校的感觉如何?

2. 我们该怎么做才能始终如一地保持这些感觉并创造一个积极的学习环境?

3.我们会怎样预防和管理冲突和不想要的情绪?

 

 

 

 

情绪计概述 情绪计可以让学生了解自己的情绪,并为他们提供词汇来识别他们的感受。它要求学生认识到他们的感受。

 

 

元时刻概述 元时刻为学生提供了一个如何应对情绪状况的过程,以及有助于支持他们成为最佳自我的策略。

 

蓝图概述 如果确实出现冲突,蓝图会通过提出解决冲突的步骤来支持同理心和冲突解决的发展。

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for another wonderful week of support. Here are some important timely updates:

  2. Pickup Lane: the right lane around the drive loop is for parents who are remaining in their car to drive through and pick up students. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THIS LANE.  We are still having some people park in the right lane around the loops causing a traffic jam.  We know it is hard to find parking at times, but please park across the street if you cannot find a parking space at school parking. 右侧车道仅供留在车内的家长开车通过并接学生,不能熄火下车,不能离开驾驶位;如果需要更多停车位,请考虑停在对面停车场。
  3. Driving Speed: Please be mindful of your speed.  We have had some cars driving too fast.  This is especially dangerous around a curve when you may not see parents and children crossing to the parking lot. 请在我们学校停车场注意慢行,尤其是转弯处,行人不容易看到通过的车辆的地方。
  4. You are invited to join the 4th Grade Social Studies Textbook Adoption Committee. This year we are in the process of replacing the previous textbook, Washington Our Home, with a new book for 4th grade social studies. This year we are engaging in experimental use of The State We’re In: Washington and a committee will review feedback and make a recommendation regarding adoption of the new book. If you want to join, please fill out:

Parent/Community Application for the 4th Grade Social Studies Textbook Adoption Committee or https://forms.office.com/r/Pwx4prrj8d

您被邀请加入四年级社会研究教科书采用委员会。今年,我们正在用一本四年级社会研究新书取代以前的教科书《华盛顿我们的家》。今年,我们正在尝试使用《我们所处的状态:华盛顿》,一个委员会将审查反馈并就新书的采用提出建议。请填写以下表格申请加入:

The lane (highlighted in red) along the right side of the circular drive is for parents who are picking up their students by car.  Please do not park and leave your car unattended in this lane. You may park and wait in your in this lane but when dismissal starts, be ready to move your car along in the line.

Unattended cars will create traffic jams as well as safety issues, so if you are in the righthand lane, please stay in your car to be able to move forward once dismissal begins. The first couple of days we have had unattended cars in the righthand lane, forcing parents to drive along the left lane and unintentionally cut other drivers off.   By not leaving car unattended in the righthand lane, we will have a the traffic will flow better and we won’t have the two lanes trying to merge into one.

If you need to park, there are spaces in front of the building as well as parking across the street at WISC or the Wilburton Hill park.
