Camanche Elementary Newsletter

            This week discuss with you student what “I believe in myself” means. “Self-confidence originates from a perception of competence – or, to put it more simply, children develop confidence not because family and friends praise them, but because of their own accomplishments.” (Green, n.d.) It’s only natural that as parents you want to instill confidence in your kids. Confident children believe in themselves and are able to face new challenges without fear – an essential factor for a happy and fulfilling life. Please see links below to help build confidence.



Here are a couple children’s books that also include the message of “I believe in myself”:

·       Peer Pressure Gauge by Julia Cook

·       I Can Do Hard Things – Mindful Affirmations for Kids by Gabi Garcia

·       Hooray For You! A Celebration of “You-ness” by Marianne Richmond


         The theme for the yearbook is CONFETTI. We need your help getting pictures!!! Please send us the first day of school, Homecoming Week, Red Ribbon Week, 4th grade baby pictures, and any pictures you may receive through Dojo or the teacher. If you think of anything else send those also! Please send them through Camanche Elementary PTA Facebook Messenger or the PTA email listed below. Make sure to include the child’s homeroom teacher, this helps us place the picture on the correct page!
