Dear Parents,
The Percy Priest Virtual Auction is one week away! We are excited to see who will join us on the Kindergarten Teacher Outing, “Slushies at Sevier.” 🙂This outing is just one of the many sought-after items available for bid. The official Auction catalogue will go home with the kiddos on Monday. Visit percypriestauction.com/buytickets to purchase your tickets.
 
Mrs. Twitchel introduced the children to her friend Kelso, who taught them how to use “Kelso’s Choices” to solve small problems. Ask your child to explain the difference between big problems vs. little problems. See if he/she can demonstrate at least five of the nine Kelso’s Choices! Please read over the handout with your child. We will encourage the children to use these choices to resolve conflict at school.
