Daily Student Check-in..Zones of Regulation
The North Providence teachers and support staff have been working hard to put together resources that will support your child’s transition to school this year. Our goal is to promote students’ academic, social and emotional learning. Each morning, the students will log onto their devices and complete a simple checklist that will teach them to name their feelings. It is important for students to understand how their feelings affect their behaviors and their readiness to learn. Students will learn skills of identifying their emotions and how to manage those emotions in order to be successful in the classroom. There is no feeling that is “bad” or “naughty”. We all experience a range of emotions and it is important for us to be able to know what to do with these feelings in order to have a productive day. Please see the attached for more information!
How will Greystone communicate with families?
Greystone Elementary will communicate via email, Facebook @greystoneNPSD, Twitter @greystone_np, and through our school website at www.greystone.nprovschools.org
Also we use Class Dojo for all grade levels PK-5 for communication reasons

A Message from Our Music Teacher
To All Greystone Families,
Throughout the month of December all music classes will be continuing their studies of music around the world. The students will be learning seasonal and holiday music from many cultures, including the United States, England, Germany and Spain. Some songs celebrate Christmas, but are not religious songs. Many classes will have the opportunity to sing and play songs with other grades during their music class. We are looking forward to hearing festive music all month long. We hope your child/children will share these songs with you.
Mrs. Donovan, Music Teacher
