Welcome 2018-2019 School Year!

 

Welcome to Judith A. Resnik CLC

International Baccalaureate Candidate School

Welcome to the Resnik 2018-2019 school year!!!

Dear Resnik Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Resnik CLC. I hope that you are enjoying the fun that summer has to offer.  I would like to send a special welcome to all of our new kindergarten families and new Resnik families. You have selected an AMAZING school to send your child. To all my returning families, I am excited to see where you took your Resnik Shining Star over the summer break.

Resnik CLC is committed to educating the whole child while providing a safe and nurturing environment that promotes a passion for lifelong learning, respect for self and others, and an appreciation of individual differences. We are committed to developing knowledgeable and inquiring learners through a rigorous and challenging curriculum that prepares students to become active, caring citizens who are internationally-minded and can thrive and succeed in a global society.

As we begin the 2018-2019 school year, children have many different emotions when they start back to school. Open House is an excellent way to relieve any fears that your child may be experiencing. Enclosed are the dates for Open House and Back to School.

If at anytime you need assistance, please contact the school office at 330-873-3370.

Sincerely,



Mrs. Kristen Booth

Principal, Resnik CLC

TIPS for Starting a New School Year

  1. Invent a secret signal with your child – like pinching their little finger, or squeezing their hand three times – which means ‘I love you’. It’s a special and private thing that will reassure them as you let them go, whilst also avoiding any embarrassment.

  2. At home, practice eating out of a lunchbox and putting things in bin. Remind your child what should go in the bin, and what should be kept in their lunchbox and brought home. If their lunchbox goes somewhere special in the classroom, put it there with them on the first morning.

  3. Make sure the teacher has at least two correct numbers to call you, in case something happens. It won’t happen, but just in case.

  4. Turn in all EMERGENCY FORMS by the first day of school.

  5. Meet and chat to at least one ‘new’ parent. You’ll have a lot in common over the next eight years – and it’ll be very valuable to have an ally who’s going through the same process as you.

  6. Practice helping your child take their coat off, hanging it up in a special place, and putting it on again. This will really help the teacher in a cramped classroom and will make the child feel more independent at break-time.

  7. It is very common in infant classes for the teacher to ‘bring’ the class to the toilet together, so remind your little one to go then, even if they are absolutely positive they don’t need to go. They do, and they will! If they are prone to wetting themselves, make sure you are aware of the school policy on changing clothes if the issue arises. Show the child where the bathroom is on the first morning, and remind them to wash their hands.

  8. Label everything. And I mean, everything. You don’t want to be buying a new coat and Peppa Pig lunchbox in October.

  9. If your child is allergic to anything, make a little card and list those allergies for the classroom teacher.

  10. Most schools will let you walk into the room with your child (especially on the first day!) but don’t make a habit of loitering around afterwards.

  11. Empty the child’s bag everyday – especially in the first few days, where notes and envelopes may be sent home.

  12. Don’t worry, tears are totally normal. They aren’t upset with you, and you’re not a ‘bad’ parent for walking away.
