Bergen Arts & Science Charter School

Bergen Buzz! February 2020

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that the school year is half way over. February is a busy month filled with many enriching activities aligned to Black History Month. The third marking period brings more challenging material and we continue to encourage parents to work with their children at home to reinforce skills learned during the school day.

During cold and flu season, our school nurse is keeping a close eye on the health of all our students. We ask that parents refrain from giving children with fevers Acetaminophen, Tylenol, Advil, Ibuprofen, Motrin or any medication to lower fevers prior to coming to school.  Children coming to school with even a low-grade fever are far more susceptible to any illness that may be incubating in the school environment from other children.

 

If your child is going to be sick from school please contact the main office to advise by 9am. You can call (862) 247-8510 or email [email protected] or [email protected]

 

Just a gentle reminder regarding morning drop off procedures. School begins at 8:00am. Please provide enough time in the morning to allow your child to arrive on time for morning assembly. Drop off begins at 7:30. Please consider dropping off earlier than 7:55 to help prevent traffic build up.

Motivating our children to read “for fun” can sometimes be a struggle. Below are some fun strategies from Scholastic magazine to help make reading fun for our children:

Map it Out: Show your child the way from your house to the grocery store or another familiar destination. Have your child write out the directions, street by street, and then read them to you as you walk or drive to the store – like a living GPS!

Card Tricks: Go to a greeting card store with your child and read the greeting cards together. Later, vote for the ones whose words convey the best birthday wish or get-well sentiment.

Picture This: During your next outing or gathering, take action-packed photos, then have your child create captions to go with each picture. Assemble the pictures and captions in a picture book or album, and add speech and thought bubbles to create a personalized – and probably hysterical — graphic novel.

Last Comic Standing: Take time to read comic strips together. Share favorites from your own childhood and have your child put his favorites on the fridge. Read them aloud, and often — repetition is a great way to build reading skills. Soon, he’ll love looking forward to the “Sunday funnies” each week.

 

We thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

 

Best,

 

Sheila B. Goodstein
