Welcome to Whittier Primary School

Welcome Back Newsletter

Whittier Primary School has joined The Leader In Me family! Each new school year brings opportunities; opportunities for academic growth but also opportunities for growth in all areas of development. Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and caring people.

Leader in Me Logo

The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.

Mrs. Kelly Stahl, Principal

Remember the Five C’s of Discipline

There is an easy way to remember the important parts of discipline: all begin with the letter “c.” They include clarity, consistency, consequences, caring, and change. Here’s what each involves:

Clarity – Children need to understand rules in order to follow them. The best rules are short and specific. For example, “Say please” is better than “Be polite.”

Consistency – Exceptions to rules confuse kids. But when parents always enforce good rules, kids know they should always obey.

Consequences – It helps children see the results of their actions. For example, a child who learns a new skill will enjoy success and praise. A child who says something unkind may upset a friend.

Caring – Discipline works best when it’s done with love. Parents should provide rules, responsibilities, and consequences to teach children – not punish them.

Change – Kids change as they grow, and so should parents’ discipline methods. For example, your child may be ready to pick up all of her toys instead of just a few. Or she may need more praise as she learns a new skill. Adjusting discipline to your child’s abilities will make things easier for both of you.
