Talking with Kids

From Michelle Welch, LPS District Wellness Facilitator:

Each of us cares for kiddos in our own way.  As parents, teachers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends or neighbors, our wish for our family and community is to be a positive, secure place where we can support bright futures together.  Life sometimes brings tragedy and rough patches no matter our age, address or ability to deal with sudden change.

At the same time, the kids around us are looking to us as to how to deal with circumstances in this strange time where the excitement of holiday break preparation is strangely intermixed with tragedy.  For those who haven’t seen this, LPS has put together a “Talking with Kids” education piece that is helpful.  Please click here to access the resource.

Balloons for Mrs. Buss

November 8th was a day of celebration and giving thanks at Cavett Elementary.  A day to celebrate the life of Mrs. Dayna Buss and be thankful that she was part of the Cavett Cardinal family.

The words of Jeff Vercellino, Cavett’s principal said it best:

Here at Cavett we have a motto —Cavett Cares. If there was anybody who exemplified this motto, it was Mrs. Buss.  She  cared deeply about each and every person that she worked with. Whether it was a student, staff member, or parent. Mrs. Buss cared about everyone.  You could always count on a smile and a word of encouragement from Mrs. Buss.   She was also a gifted teacher.  She taught people how to read, write, be mathematicians, think scientifically, explore, and to believe in yourself.

Any of us that were fortunate enough to work with Mrs. Buss knew she had a smile that could light up a room. I can speak with 100% certainty that Mrs. Buss is looking down on all of us today with a tremendously large smile on her face thinking this is pretty cool. Mrs. Buss….we think you’re pretty cool too. We miss you tremendously and we have almost 800 messages coming your way. At the count of three friends, I want you to send your note to Mrs. Buss ……..1, 2, 3!!!
