Here’s hoping that the transition into February begins with a warm, cozy, and relaxing weekend for you all.
Please note that next Monday, the 1st, is a B day.
AmPark had our weekly random testing on Wednesday of this week. Thank you to all of our in-person learners for having their consent in. Our students continue to show us how brave they are and how important safety is to them!
Next week our students will participate in our annual National African American Read-In event on World Read Aloud Day. Each year, this national event encourages the elevation of Black authors and books about Black experiences. Our theme for this year is Hope and we will be focusing on three titles: I Promise by LeBron James, “The Hill We Climb” by Amanda Gorman, Sing A Song by Kelly Starling Lyons, and June Peters, You Will Change the World Someday by Alika R. Turner. Your classroom teachers may be looking for guest readers next week so be on the lookout!
Friday, February 4th begins Respect for All week. We will be launching RFA week with No One Eats Alone Day. Links to events will be posted in the google classrooms.

A Message From Our Parent Coordinator
Hello AmPark Families! It's already February you know what that means! It’s time for some more monthly parent resources and announcements!
This month’s family connection piece is going to fill your little one up with so much love and joy that it will be a continuation! It’s hard not to beat yourself up after losing your temper with your child. If you find yourself feeling guilty and remorseful after losing your cool with your kids here are some things you should do:
1. Forgive yourself.
2. Apologize to your child.
3. Challenge yourself to five good acts.
The Magic 5:1 Ratio concept helps build that parent-child relationship. When there are too many negative interactions with few positive exchanges in between that can create distance between you and your child. But if you want to close that gap, the 5:1 ratio can help. Keep in mind that the positive interaction must be something that the other person experiences as positive, not just something that seems positive to you. Take the time to observe your kids and learn what matters to them. Click here for some tools and tips!
