COLD WEATHER COMING SOON!
This year it seems like cold weather is coming sooner than usual! Almost as if summer ended, we skipped fall entirely, and we are jumping into winter. Please make sure your kids are dressed appropriately for the weather each and every day. Maybe put a stocking cap and some gloves in your child's backpack, just in case the weather changes quickly. Another good tip is to send your kids to school every day with a hoodie or a jacket. Even if they don't need it, at least they will have it. Better to have too many layers than not enough. Finally, for new families to Colorado, you have likely seen how quickly the weather can change here. Just because it looks nice in the morning, doesnt mean it is going to stay that way for the rest of the day. Prepare your kids for all of the possibilities that Colorado can serve up!
About half of our students have family members who are serving our nation in the Armed Forces. When military life significantly impacts our kids, we have someone who can help! Mr. Rich Lins is our Military & Family Life Counselor (M.F.L.C.) and he is here at McAuliffe full time to work with students who are having emotional or behavioral issues or are otherwise struggling while family members are on deployment or PCSing in or out of Colorado Springs. To help with these issues, Mr. Lins has been assisting military families connect with useful resources such as the military dolls pictured here. Pictures of the deployed family member can be inserted in the window. These can be ordered from www.huggeemissyou.com. Another valuable resource is Military OneSource (www.militaryonesource.mil) where many of the books that Mr. Lins uses with our children can be found at no cost. The site also offers a multitude of links and contacts where military families can find other helpful resources. If you or your student are interested in meeting with Mr. Lins, please contact him at (719) 228-0979 or e-mail him at email@example.com.
