The Goddard School

Welcome to The Goddard School! Our goal is to be a resource for families and a community where parents can share information and learn from each other.

"Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us." - Hal Borland. Happy New Year!

This is a great time of year to snuggle up with your little one and share in the adventures of a good book. Children of all ages will benefit from this quality time with you and their imaginations will soar with every turn of the page. Share a book (or two!) that has created fond memories for you and your child!

The holiday season often means lots of travel with your family. Prepare your children for these special trips by reading some of the books on this list. These stories feature planes, trains, cars and relatives like grandparents to help your children learn what to expect.

Family traditions allow you to experience the true joy of family life! Make the most of your traditions – they make your family unique and can magically turn a collection of individuals into a stronger, more robust group of people. Share some of your holiday family traditions!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving – and there is so much to be thankful for! Get in the spirit of the holiday and make a list with your family. What do you think your little ones will say they are thankful for?

We all want our children to be happy, well liked and good toward others. There are some basic things we can do that set a strong foundation for these pursuits and support our children’s social skills.

KINDNESS WEEK!

Here at The Goddard School, we just wrapped up KINDNESS WEEK! In celebration of National Kindness Day, our families posted nice words about their child to be read to them in their classrooms! Parents, thank you for paving the way and teaching our students that it costs nothing to show kindness!

Happy World Kindness Day! Show your child that random acts of kindness don't have to be random. Kindness can also be just good manners. Say 'hello,' hold the door for someone or lend a helping hand.

Congratulations to Emily and our Kindergarten Class- Magnificent Mountains, for winning the Pumpkin Decorating Contest! Monster's Inc. stole the hearts of everyone!

We have the cutest pumpkins in the patch!! Thank you to our amazing chaperones who helped to make our field trip a success!

Thanks to our wonderful parents, children and staff, we were able to donate 69 pounds of food to Loudoun Hunger Relief! We were thrilled to be able to give to such a great and thriving organization!

Fostering respect and manners as well as establishing expectations, limits and consequences is good preparation for any public outing. Take advantage of teachable moments and be sure to reinforce the rules you have set. Acknowledge good behavior with a simple “thank you”. Positive reinforcement instills pride and motivates children to make good behavior a habit. With a little help, your child may develop into a much friendlier companion, guest and citizen at home as well as in public.

Have you tried growing a plant with your child yet? We love to take care of our classroom plants at The Goddard School! ❤️

Work to the soundtrack of children giggling – become a Goddard School teacher! Use your talents and expertise to create fun, engaging activities that empower children to become happy, lifelong learners.

What can you build with your child?

At The Goddard School, we love to exercise and play with our friends outside every day! What do you like to do outside?

Today we learned all about doctors in our Pre-Kindergarten class!

Parents can help make the back to school transition much smoother for their child if they prepare in advance. Try to add activities or planned outings to your child’s day.

Prepare your children for upcoming summer vacations so they can get the most educationally and emotionally out of your adventures. Talk about where you are going and why, how long you will be there, and what they can expect. When you do this right, it feels like a shared family adventure in which everyone’s experience matters and contributes to its success. Tell us about your summer family adventures in the comments!

Routine provides structure, which is often lacking during the summer when children all too quickly become detached from the lessons they learned throughout the school year. Maintaining a schedule during the summer supports an environment that is less of a contrast to the classroom and provides a healthy balance between building skills, play and rest. How do you keep a routine with your children during the summer?

Looking for a fun, healthy snack? Children will “go bananas” for this fun frozen treat! https://bit.ly/2w8ePXO

Children, even as young as toddlers, just love to role play. Letting them help out with chores provides valuable life lessons about teamwork, family, responsibility and accountability.

"In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved." -Franklin D. Roosevelt Wishing your family a safe, happy and healthy Independence Day tomorrow!

Keeping a child's brain challenged throughout the summer is crucial, since the lack of learning that occurs during the summer months can have both short-term and long-term consequences. When a child’s day remains consistent throughout the summer, he remains focused and is less likely to experience learning losses. In addition, this can potentially ease the anxiety that often accompanies transitioning into a new classroom or school come fall.
