Dear Sheehan Families,
I can feel Spring in the air! The month of March and April are busy ones with several events taking place here at Sheehan and in our District.
Yesterday, we had visiting author Ms. Dusti Bowling meet with all third, fourth and fifth graders at Sheehan. Dusti Bowling, author of Insignificant Events in the Life of Cactus shared with our students how she gets her inspiration for writing. Her writing is inspired by her family, her friends, her pets, nature, her natural environment, and amazing experiences she has had throughout her life. Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus “communicates how having a physical difference means constantly navigating other people’s discomfort. It covers the topics of social issues, special needs, friendship, family, adoption, mysteries, Tourette syndrome, and physical disabilities.” So many of our students have enjoyed reading her book and were engaged in her discussion talk yesterday. A special THANK YOU to Sheehan Librarian, Ann Clarke, Mrs. Place, Mrs. Caparro, and Mrs. Cancellieri.
Throughout this school year, the District has held several parent programs that tie in nicely with our 2018 -2019 priorities outlined in our Strategy for District Improvement. This month and in April, we are holding two forums.
Next Tuesday, March 19th, Danielle Murray, Westwood parent, and Safe and Welcoming Schools Specialist at the Boston Public Schools will be holding a parent program on Preventing Biased - Based Bullying. This program will be held at 7:00 PM in the High School Little Theater. Parents will learn about Bias - Based Bullying and how parents can support their children as they develop ally behaviors and skills. Together, we will look at bullying in schools and develop techniques to empower students to become leaders in creating healthy school environments.
On Thursday, April 4th at 7:00 PM at the Deerfield School, WPS will be hosting Lynn Lyons who will be speaking to parents on How to Emotionally Equip our Kids: Patterns to Foster, Patterns to Watch For, and Why Prevention Works. Lynn Lyons is a clinical social worker and psychotherapist who specializes in the treatment of anxiety disorders in adults and children. She will talk to us about the skills we can (and should) be teaching our children.
We hope that you can join us at these upcoming parent programs. We know that it is critical for schools and families to be partners in all of these efforts.
Have a wonderful week.
