PRINCIPAL LOGAN’S NOTE
Guy Winch, a psychologist and author, asks us to take our emotional health as seriously as we take our physical health -- and explores how to heal from common heartaches. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies. Check out “The Case for Emotional Hygiene” — an important TED Talk about self-care.

Sumac STUDENT 360 September Focus — Positive Mindset
At Sumac safety is a priority for every child, every day. We know safety comes from physical and emotional well being. Our social emotional focus of the month is on developing a positive mindset. There are many ways to build this muscle memory. One way we are trying as a staff to build our own mindset is through a 21 day gratitude challenge. It is easy for me to find three things for which I am grateful: (1) the fantastic Sumac community who came out for the PFA and Volunteer Summit this week (2) the music at our Friday morning assemblies - join us tomorrow - and (3) the beautiful bulletin boards that adorn our hallways. Try to take some time to list a few things you are grateful for each day!

DID YOU TURN IN YOUR DIRECT DONATION FORM?
Each year we raise money to pay for the amazing programs that make up our special L•STEM program. Why? Your state taxes only cover the basics: buildings, teachers, instructional books, and desks. It’s actually the PFA (Parent Faculty Association) who pays for the additional teachers, staff, equipment and more (which roughly cost $150,000) which is why fundraising is so important! Please turn in your Direct Donations forms to the front office or pay online at www.sumacpfa.org/donate.
Your tax-deductible donation—no matter the amount—makes a huge difference, so don’t be shy and please donate today!
