Learning AND the Parent and Family Engagement Plan summary brochure have been sent home in your child’s backpack. The

If a student is not in school, then we cannot teach the
student. One of the biggest issues at Croton is the attendance, early check-out, and tardy rates of our students. The change to our clocks (November 7) is an excellent opportunity to be reminded about the importance of arriving to school every day on time. There are many research studies on attendance (including timeliness) as an indicator of school success. Students may arrive on campus at 7:30 a.m. and head to the cafeteria for a well-balanced
breakfast. Children need breakfast to help with their developing brains and growing bodies. Interestingly, studies show that children who skip breakfast are tardy and
absent from school more often than children who eat breakfast on a regular basis.
If you have not received your child’s FOCUS pin, please contact your child’s teacher. You may
request to have it sent home in their backpack or request to pick up in our front office. FOCUS pins cannot be given out over the phone or emailed. It is important to get this information so you can access your child’s grades, interim reports and report cards. If you have any
questions, your child’s teacher will be able to assist you.
Over the last year our school has implemented
Conscious Discipline (Dr. Becky Bailey) strategies to work with our students. Conscious Discipline’s unique
methodology is responsive to the individual’s needs and skill level, ensuring increased success and positive
outcomes regardless of your current skill set or where you are in your life journey.
Conscious Discipline is an evidence-based,
comprehensive, multi-disciplinary self-regulation
program. It addresses the emotional intelligence of adults first, which helps the children second. The three core components of Conscious Discipline are safety,
connection, and problem solving.
Look for our “Conscious Discipline Corner” in each
newsletter to give you as parents helpful tips and
strategies to support our school with the Conscious
