Bronco News 4-27-2022
.Hello from the Executive Director.
Hello Bronco Families!
A little madness…. Yep, we are experiencing that here at school, but not the kind fit for a king! We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the staff and all of the volunteers who are stepping up to fill in for everyone who has been out over the last couple of weeks with various illnesses. It seems like every classroom has been affected by some form of spring fever - the kind that forces you to stay in bed for several days. Hopefully, next week will bring better weather and better health! Thank you, students, for your flexibility and the respect you are showing to the various faces popping in and out to cover classes during these days of staffing shortages. We do work well together under pressure….not that we need any more at this point. Yikes!
Speaking of spring fever, the other kind seems to be in the air. With the end of the school year in sight, the energy level in the building and in some classrooms is amping up. Staff members are noticing increases in social struggles, attention seeking behaviors, and general misbehaviors. I was asked to share this information with a request that families talk with your children about hanging in there and finishing the year strong. We appreciate the teamwork of CCCS families working with our staff to maintain a friendly, calm, engaging learning environment for all of our students (...and at this time of year our staff, too).
Students started the annual testing process in several classes. Teachers report that they are working hard and taking it seriously. It is very helpful if students are well rested and eat a healthy breakfast every morning especially during testing time since many students feel stressed about the process.
Have a wonderful afternoon!
