A Message from the Principal



February is the time to celebrate Love and Black History


As parents, you have unique ways of sending your children messages of love.  Sometimes, a child just doesn’t get the message and thinks his/her parents don’t care.


“There are at least three languages of love,” says child development specialist H. Wallace Goddard.  They are showing, telling and touching:


  • A child who wants to be shown love—wants you to do things with him/her.  So arrange to spend some quality time with them.


  • A tell-me child wants to hear words like, “I love you,” “I’m so glad you’re my child” and “I enjoy being with you.”


  • A touch-me child needs a parent to hug him/her, no matter how old they are.


Notice what your child asks for. 


Watch how your child sends his/her own messages of love. 


Once you’ve figured this out, plan how you will send your child messages of love.
