Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back from Spring Break!

In spring, we usually see students need more support for social awareness as they are very close to their classmate and still learning how to show their friendship. Please show this video to your child and talk about how to show kindness in general. Being kind: Why Be Kind?

We also would like to have your supports to talk about social management skills with your child at home. 💗 Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Spotlight

Social Management is a person’s ability to make safe and constructive choices about personal behavior and social interactions. Watch this short video with your child to help them understand this concept, and see if they can try it next week.

We will continue to use Phoenix Tickets and positive reinforcements to support our students’ growth and spotlight their efforts and progress vs. achievement. We hope you can continue to celebrate their amazing progress at home and provide positive reinforcement as well.

Thank you for reading our newsletter.

Sincerely,

Ms. Tan and Mr. Shelton

欢迎春假回来!

在春天,我们通常会看到学生需要更多的社交情感支持,因为学生与同学近距离接触,并且仍在学习如何表达友谊。 请向您的孩子播放此视频,并讨论如何表达善意,:为什么要友善

我们也希望得到您的支持,与您的孩子在家谈论社交管理技能。 💗 社交情感学习 (SEL) 焦点

社会管理是一个人对个人行为和社交互动做出安全和建设性选择的能力。 与您的孩子一起观看这段简短的视频,帮助他们理解这个概念,看看他们是否可以在下周尝试一下。

我们在学校继续会用凤凰卡来鼓励和表扬孩子。希望您在家也可以继续帮助给孩子鼓励,我们希望孩子们知道自己的努力是被大家看到和认可的,我们注重的不一定是成绩和结果但是我们给与孩子努力的过程中付出的汗水给与认可和表扬。

感谢您阅读我们的时事通讯。

真挚地,

谭校长与副校长

April Counselor Newsletter 4/17/2024

Screen time and privacy controls can be a daunting task for parents. We know screen time before bed can interrupt the sleep cycle because the blue light emitted from screens tricks the brain into thinking it’s still daytime. Research says to limit screen time to at least 30 minutes before going to bed as well as limiting overall screen time in the evening. Common Sense Media has many resources targeted to what you may be need support with when it comes to screen time tips and parental controls. This includes parental controls for different gaming systems and online platforms.

Ideas for limiting screen time before bed can include a daily bedtime routine:

      • Find a relaxing activity before bed that doesn’t involve screens (reading, puzzles, drawing/art). This is also a good opportunity to check in with your student about their day and how they are feeling.
      • Give yourself at least 20-30 minutes to get ready for bed before going to sleep.
      • Stick with a bedtime routine that makes the most sense for your family and try to keep it consistent.

Here are a few links that may relate to what you are looking for from the Common Sense website:

四月辅导员通讯 4/17/2024

对于父母来说,屏幕时间和隐私控制可能是一项艰巨的任务。我们知道睡前的屏幕时间会打断睡眠周期,因为屏幕发出的蓝光会欺骗大脑认为它仍然是白天。研究表明,将屏幕时间限制在睡前至少 30 分钟,并限制晚上的整体屏幕时间。 Common Sense Media 有许多资源针对您在屏幕时间提示和家长控制方面可能需要支持的内容。这包括针对不同游戏系统和在线平台的家长控制。

限制睡前屏幕时间的想法可以包括每天的就寝时间:

      • 睡前找一个不涉及屏幕的放松活动(阅读、拼图、绘画/艺术)。这也是一个很好的机会,可以与您的学生一起了解他们的一天以及他们的感受。
      • 睡前至少给自己 20-30 分钟准备睡觉。
      • 坚持对您的家人最有意义的就寝时间,并尽量保持一致。

Fire Drills

This week we will have our 3rd Fire Drill of the school year.  Washington state law and Bellevue School District policy require all schools to hold at least one drill per calendar month while school is in session. This month, we will be conducting a fire drill and practicing evacuating the building and accounting for everyone.
During a fire evacuation, students are taught to quickly and quietly exit the building. They meet on the field at an assigned location and stay silent while attendance is taken to ensure all people have safely evacuated.

Please talk with your student about preparing for emergencies and disasters such as fires. Encourage them to talk about their concerns and express their feelings. Emphasize that even though sometimes things happen that we may not expect, there are lots of things we can do to help us stay safe.

For more information on fire safety, you might want to visit the National Fire Protection Association “Kids” page at http://www.sparky.org/ or their parent resource page at http://www.sparky.org/parents.

消防演习

本周我们将举行本学年第三次消防演习。 华盛顿州法律和贝尔维尤学区政策要求所有学校在上课期间每个日历月至少举行一次演习。 这个月,我们将进行消防演习,练习疏散大楼并为每个人清点。

在火灾疏散过程中,学生们被教导要快速、安静地撤离大楼。 他们在现场指定地点集合,并在点名时保持沉默,以确保所有人都安全疏散。

请与您的学生讨论如何为火灾等紧急情况和灾难做好准备。 鼓励他们谈论他们的担忧并表达他们的感受。 强调,尽管有时会发生我们意想不到的事情,但我们可以做很多事情来帮助我们保持安全。

有关消防安全的更多信息,您可能需要访问国家消防协会“儿童”页面 http://www.sparky.org/ 或其家长资源页面 http://www.sparky.org/parents

Resource for Families: Is Your Child Overdue for a Well-Child Visit?

Bellevue School District partners with the Washington State Department of Healthto monitor and support student immunizations. Now is the time to catch up on immunizations!

Many children are due for well-child visits because of challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Talk with your health care provider to find out which vaccines your child needs. Use yearly checkups and other visits, such as sports physicals, to make sure your children have all the immunizations they need.

 

Request a copy of your child’s immunization record from your health care provider so you can keep track of their immunization history. Or sign up for MyIR Mobile, which gives you online access to your own and your family’s immunization records.

Children under 19 years of age in Washington are provided with all recommended vaccines at no or low cost at one of Washington state’s Childhood Vaccine Programproviders. Health care providers may charge an office visit fee and a fee to give the vaccine, called an administration fee. If you can’t afford the administration fee, you may ask for it to be waived.

家庭资源:您的孩子是否已经逾期儿童健康检查?

贝尔维尤学区与华盛顿州卫生部合作监测和支持学生免疫接种。 现在正是赶上免疫接种的时候!

由于新冠肺炎 (COVID-19) 疫情的挑战,许多儿童需要接受儿童保健服务。

与您的医疗保健提供者交谈,了解您的孩子需要哪些疫苗。 每年进行一次检查和其他访问,例如运动体检,以确保您的孩子获得了他们所需的所有免疫接种。

 

向您的医疗保健提供者索取您孩子的免疫记录副本,以便您可以跟踪他们的免疫史。 或者注册 MyIR Mobile,它可以让您在线访问您自己和家人的免疫记录

华盛顿州的儿童疫苗计划提供商之一免费或低价为华盛顿 19 岁以下的儿童提供所有推荐的疫苗。 医疗保健提供者可能会收取办公室就诊费和疫苗接种费(称为管理费)。 如果您无力承担管理费,您可以要求免除。
