This week at Soleado 10/7-1011

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday Soleado Families!! This week is full of important events and activities that you should mark on your calendars. One very important task that we need everyone to do is join our "GROUP" on Member Planet. Our goal is to enlist all of our Soleado families as members and use the site as our primary communication forum. Please visit the site frequently to stay on top of school news and updates. Our goal is to cut back on money spent on copies.........ultimately we would love to eliminate this portion of our budget all together and allocate those funds towards school supplies/technology upgrades and many other expenses for our kids. CLICK HERE TO JOIN

You should have received a letter from your room parent team last week. This letter outlines the room parent roles and describes the voluntary donation you can make. This voluntary program will provide funds to be used to purchase extra supplies for projects and class gifts for the teacher.  Donations are due by the 18th.  Please use the envelope that was sent home with the child or make sure to put the class treasurer name on an envelope so the teacher knows where it needs to go.

Please let me know if you have not received this information.

BOOK FAIR FOLLOW UP…..we have good news for anyone who couldn't make it to the Book Fair or if we ran out of a book that your student or teacher wanted!  Our online Book Fair is open until October 12th.
Click HERE go to the online book fair,  and you're all set.  Purchases made until October 12th will be credited to Soleado and earn more money and books for our school.  Orders will ship free to Soleado after October 12th, and will be provided to your teacher.

Reflections 2013-2014 Due Date is Friday, October 25. CLICK HERE for more information.  

Character Counts Pillar For The Month: Caring.

The Character Counts Coalition uses the color red to symbolize the pillar of Caring. 
This month our students will be focusing on the pillar of Caring.  There are two main ideas that apply to the pillar of caring.
  • Concern for others: Show compassion and empathy. Be kind, loving and considerate in your actions. Be grateful for the things people do for you. Forgive the shortcomings of others. Don’t be mean or cruel to others. Be sensitive of other's feelings. 
  • Compassion: Children can learn that people should be considerate and caring. Instead of ignoring hurt, confusion, anger and sadness they can learn that people should reach out to one another. As Plato quoted “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle!” we can never tell what difficulties another person is facing, and your kind word or action might make all the difference.
