Manakau School

Interesting times ahead...

An opportunity

When thinking about the next 4 weeks...the teachers and I have talked about how we support you.  We have websites and information to share after the holiday break.  However, it is really important to be kind to yourself.  Don’t worry about your children missing out on time at school. Every single child is in the same boat and they all will be OK.  When we are back in the classroom, we will all course correct and meet them where they are.   Teachers are experts at this!  Don’t pick fights with your children because they don’t want to do math.  Try not to get frustrated because they won’t follow the schedule. Don’t mandate hours of learning time if they are resisting it.

If I can leave you with one thing it’s this: at the end of all of this, your children’s’ mental health will be more important than their academic skills.  And how they felt during this time will stay with them long after the memory of what they did during these 4 or more weeks is long gone.   Please keep that in mind every single day.  Deb
