Camanche Elementary Newsletter

            Please remember to send your student to school with a water bottle EVERY DAY.  We did have extra available, but have run out completely.  Thank you!



            Dear caregivers, this week and next week the students are learning: “Grown-ups are in charge of Big Deals: Kids are in charge of Little Deals”. Big deals consist of emergencies, dangerous situations or if someone is hurt. When they happen it is important to get help from a trusted adult right away. Little deals are situations/problems that happen every day. Students are taught several problem solving strategies they can use in any little deal situation. We empower students to use their problem solving strategies for little deals that arise throughout the day, as it is a crucial life skill to develop. Ask your child what little deal strategies they use most often. More information about how to teach problem solving at any age: https://biglifejournal.com/blogs/blog/how-teach-problem-solving-strategies-kids-guide
