Dear Santa Fe Community,
We are now in the very heart of the school year! Students know their schedules, daily routines, and expectations so well by now that more cognition and energy can be expended on learning and academic growth every day. You can enhance this growth for your Cougar Scholar by creating time at home each day to not only discuss what was learned but develop good daily habits of engaging in homework as well as reading. Spending time reading as a family each day is an excellent way to model life-long learning to your children. Set time aside to turn off the television, music, devices, and screens. Dim the lights except for those needed for reading. Speak in quiet tones. The poetry of a night of reading is transformational to our night time selves. Enjoy the richness of an inner life with a good book, a cozy spot, and loved ones.
I hope you will keep learning and curiosity alive in your home! #santafestandup
With Respect and Pride,
