Dear Frank Love Families,
Today we held our second in-person whole school assembly. Students from each classroom received Humanitarian Awards, and families joined to honor them. It is wonderful to be able to come together as a community and connect over shared celebration and pride in our students.
During our assembly our counselor, Ms Weber, presented Empowerment as the school wide focus for November and December. Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident. It means people having power and control over their own lives. Teaching empowerment to our students helps them advocate for themselves and others, and set and meet goals. During conference week you may see this in action as you learn about your student’s progress this year.
Have a great weekend!

Frank Love Elementary is participating in Coats for Kids sponsored by Knights of Columbus. If you would like a coat for your student please fill out this form. We will do our best to match the size and then we will send the coat home with your student.
Coats for Kids Overview:
To Provide warmth for children in need during cold winter months. The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during the winter season. Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since program inception.
Seeking Donations - Puzzles!
There are a lot of ways our Cheetah Readers find comfort and belonging in our library. Many of our readers find calm and friendship while working on a puzzle with a classmate.
If you have puzzles (floor puzzles, wooden/foam, or 25 -300 pieces) that you would be willing to donate to the library, we’d LOVE them! We will use them in the library AND many will be made available to students for check out from our NEW Take and Play section in the library.
Library Volunteers Needed
The library is always looking for additional volunteers to assist with check out, shelving and special projects. If you would like to serve as a library helper during your student’s weekly visit, or at some other time, please email Rebecca Wynkoop at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for supporting our Cheetah Readers!

VISION AND HEARING SCREENING

Cheetah Values: At today’s all school assembly we introduced a Frank Love value that we will be focusing on in November and December: Empowerment. Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident. It means people having power and control over their own lives. We will be encouraging kids to empower themselves and others. One way to empower yourself is to identify and manage your emotions. Another way is to set goals for yourself and celebrate your accomplishments.
Emotion Regulation: This month I have been teaching students about emotion management. I have been using the Zones of Regulation in K-2 and I have been teaching grades 3-5 about the brain and how the amygdala tries to keep us safe but can sometimes take control when we are not in danger. We call this “flipping your lid”. All grades are working on practicing and choosing their favorite calming tools to use when feeling strong emotions.
Here is the November SEL calendar for fun SEL activities at home.
Family Resources: Please check out Clothes For Kids for a free clothing resource for Northshore families.
Please fill out this form to find out about resources in our community for families in need, and we will contact you when we hear about available resources.
