Why you should be involved with Watch D.O.G.S.
The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dad's of Great Students) are a great way to be involved with Watson. It is a chance to be involved throughout the day, with a variety of activities. Please view this video from Dr. Miller about Watch D.O.G.S. and check out Ms. Taylor's page for more information.
The Morris Brothers visit Watson
Thanks to the awesome Watson MST PTA the Morris Brothers came to Watson and presented their Bully Busters program. In a high energy presentation the student sang, danced and roleplayed strategies for dealing with bullying. They also learned the important difference between reporting something and tattling. It was a great time for the students, as well as the staff. Please check out the video, it is definitely worth it.
Staying Healthy This Fall and Winter
Nurse Howard has given us an exclusive lesson in staying healthy this Fall and Winter. She said that washing your hands is one of the most important things you can do to prevent illnesses such as the flu. Nurse Howard has very kindly given us tips on video. Please, no matter your age, take a look, listen and learn about this important daily action you can take to stay healthy. View the video here.
Firemen Discuss Safety With Kindergarten
The Garland Fire Department visited Watson to discuss fire safety with the Kindergarten classes. They talked about what to do if your clothes caught on fire, who to call if there is an emergency and what situations it was appropriate to call 911. The Kindergarten students learned a lot. View the video here.
Thank you Garland Fire Department!
Talking to your child about Cyber Safety
Last week we posted about what you can do, as a parent or guardian, to keep your child safe on the internet. We wanted to share with you some websites that have materials you can use to discuss cyber safety with your child. Some of these websites are used in our Watson classrooms include:
We encourage you to look at these websites for yourself, decide what is best for your child and talk about it as a family.
See the Programs & Activities page for all the in's and out's here at Watson!
