5th/6th grade human growth and development information
Beginning late April, 5th and 6th graders will begin learning about human growth and development (puberty and HIV/AIDS prevention). We would like to invite parents and guardians to attend a district presentation on one of the dates below to learn about what standards, activities, and resources will be addressed and used for the human growth and development lessons. This is also a great opportunity to answer questions that parents might have. The presentations will be held at the district office (1601 Avenue D in Snohomish).
District presentations (select one to presentation to attend)
In our school community, we are passionate about meeting all learners where they are in order to help them realize their innate and extraordinary human potential. This is our great work! Care to join us?
New School-Wide Kindness and Compassion Workshop!
Starting January 22, we are starting something new, something very meaningful and important in service to our students at Cascade View. Mr. L will be sending home a letter to each family, by student mail, on Monday, January 22,but you can also click on his blog link (to the right) to read the electronic version of the same letter. Stay informed, stay engaged--together, we're continuing to build an amazing place of magic at Cascade View!
Are you checking out Mr. L's blog? He's writing on some pretty important topics about our school. In addition to the newsletters you get from school and from teachers, this is also a way to learn more about what our students are experiencing, from Mr. L's perspective, at Cascade View!
SEL Lives at Cascade View
As part of our mission of "teaching to the heart as well as the mind," our students are learning important Social and Emotional Learning concepts. If you haven't already, ask your child about the Zones of Regulation, their Brain in the Palm of Their Hand (and what "flipping their lids" means), and some mindfulness tools and strategies they are learning to improve their ability to regulate their emotions.
Towards Becoming a Compassionate School
Cascade View is joining three other schools in the Snohomish School District as part of a county-wide grant facilitating the implementation of trauma-informed school practices to better support our students at school. This two year collaboration with county coordinators and instructors will center on a data-informed approach to enhance our systemic and classroom instructional and intervention practices sensitive to all students but also to our students who come to us with multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (or trauma). More information will be sent to our school community in the months to come. We are excited about this new endeavor and are looking forward to evolving what we do to better meet our WHY!
