Asset of the Month



Positive Family Communication

Kids can turn to their parent, guardian, or family member for advice and support. They have frequent, in-depth conversations with each other on a variety of topics. Parents, guardians, and family members are approachable and available when kids need to talk.

AT HOME - When your kids talk, really listen. Accept the fact that you won’t agree on everything. Never label a child’s opinions, beliefs, feelings or experiences “silly,” “stupid,” “childish,” or “wrong.”

Ask your kids every day about what they are doing and thinking. Tell them about your day too. Form the habit of frequent conversation.

FOR THE KIDS - Keep the lines of communication open with your parents. For most parents, giving advice is an irresistible urge. You might try explaining that sometimes all you really need them to do is listen while you sort things out. It’s normal for kids and parents to disagree. Try to stay calm, cool, and collected. Meanwhile, make an effort to see your parents’ point of view.

Asset of the Month




Youth Programs

Kids spend three or more hours each week in sports, clubs, or organizations
at school and/or in the community.

AT HOME - Talk with your kids about their interests.
Help them to find teams, clubs, or organizations that match or complement their interests.
Encourage them to join one - and ask for a 6 month commitment.

FOR THE KIDS - Learn what sports, clubs and organizations your school and community offers. Ask a teacher, parent, pastor, or even form a group of your own. Get involved!

Planning and Decision Making

Kids know how to plan ahead and make choices.

AT HOME - Model how to make a good decision. 1) gathering information, 2) viewing the choice from all sides, 3)weighing potential consequences, 4) listing pros and cons, 5) making a choice and sticking to it.

FOR THE KIDS - If you’re a poor planner, start simple: Make a daily TO DO list. Check items off as you complete them. If you’re a great planner share your gift with your friends. Let them know what works for you. Planning ahead, builds responsibility which builds good decision making skills. One step at a time.

Time at Home

Kids go out with friends “with nothing special to do” two or FEWER nights a week.

AT HOME - Make time at home fun for everyone. Spend time together doing things that everyone can enjoy. Play cards, plan a family movie night, read, take walks, work around the house together, ride bikes together. Make your home a place your kids want to be.

FOR THE KIDS - If your parents don’t limit the amount of time you can spend away from home, try setting your own limits. Focus more on your school work and your family, and see if your life changes in positive ways.

Family Support

Kids feel loved and supported in their family. A family that is loving and supportive, and a home that is a comfortable place to be.

AT HOME - Let your love for your kids show in the way you look at them, the words you say, your tone of voice and your body language.

FOR THE KIDS - Do your part to make your home and family warm, caring, comfortable, supportive, and fun. Be kind to your parents and siblings. Replace put-downs with affirmations, teasing with supporting, instead of thinking about “me” think about “we.” Treat your family the way you want them to treat you.

Asset of the Month





Kids accept and take personal responsibility for their actions and decisions.

AT HOME - Model responsibility in your daily life. When you make a commitment, follow through. When you can’t do something you should have, don’t make excuses. Talk with your child about how you plan to avoid getting into similar situations in the future.

FOR THE KIDS - Take responsibility for your own actions and choices. You missed the bus? Don’t blame Mom for not waking you up. Own it. You aced that math final! Own it. It is on you! The more responsibility you take, the stronger and more capable you’ll fell.

Outside Recess

Please be sure that your child comes to school dressed appropriately, as we do still go outside for recess during the winter months unless the temperature falls below freezing.  If your child is missing a coat or other item, remind them to check the lost and found prior to Wednesday morning!  Any lost and found not claimed will then be donated to St. Vincent's.
