Blessing Bags
The Community Service Club is beginning 2016 with a new project! We will be putting together Blessing Bags to distribute to the homeless. Blessing Bags are bags filled with high-need items. Instead of giving the homeless money, you give them Blessing Bags. We are in need of the following items:
- Brown lunch bags
- Water bottles
- Oral care (toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash)
- Shampoo/conditioner
- Lotion
- Chapstick
- Winter gear (gloves, scarves, hats, socks)
- Deodorant
- Non-perishable snacks
- Baby wipes
- Hand sanitizer
These items will be put in brown lunch bags, so we prefer travel size items. Feel free to donate any other items you feel are important this time of year. Also, please let Ms. Zambito know if you are willing to distribute Blessing Bags in your area. Thank you for your continued support!

CSP Science Fair News
CSP held their 11th annual Science Fair on December 19th. Many of the students participated and the judges were impressed with the quality of their work. I would like to thank all the teachers and parents who helped us at the science fair; without your help it wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did.
Twenty seven middle students will represent CSP at the CLF STEM which will be held Saturday, January 30th.

Fifteen of the high school and ten middle school science fair students will represents CSP at the AACPS Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Saturday, March 5th at North County High School. The award ceremony will take place on Thursday, March 10th, 6:00 to 8:30 at North County High School. Please congratulate these students for their accomplishments.

Has Your Child Set A New Year's Resolution?
As we start the new year, setting a resolution always comes up. New Year's Resolutions are not just for adults. It is important for kids to think about goals they would like to achieve in this year. Challenging your child to try new things, work harder and achieve goals can be a fun adventure you can go on together. Make your goals SMART. Here are some important tips when setting goals or resolutions with your child.

1. SET SPECIFIC AND REALISTIC GOALS - Encourage your child to pick one or two areas to work on. Make sure they know exactly what they want to accomplish. Example - Read a new book each month.

2. MEASURABLE - How will they know when they've reached their goal?


3. ACHIEVABLE - Make sure their goal is not too far to reach, but make it challenging.

4. RELEVANT - Link the goal to something important.


5. TIMELY - Have an idea of when you want to reach your goal. If it is longer term, have mini-goals along the way.
Post your goals as a reminder. Hang them somewhere visible.

Getting Your Child To School On Time!
Does your child give you a hard time
about coming to school? Does your child
say, "I don't want to go to school" or take
too long getting ready in the morning? It's
a common problem! Here are some tips to
help curb the bad habit before it turns
into a serious concern.

First, make sure you understand the
importance of your child being at school
on time every day. Even a few tardies
really add up!

Determine any school or home barriers
that are preventing your child from
coming to school. Are they prepared? Do
they connect with their teacher? Do they
feel safe at school? Do they have a routine
for bedtime and morning at home?

Communicate with your child's teacher or
school counselor to help your
child feel better about coming to school.

Once any simple barriers are removed,
make it a priority to get them to school on
time. Do not make or accept any excuses!

Routines are key. Bedtime should be
consistent to assure enough rest.

Develop a morning routine that works. If
you or your child is constantly rushing to
get out the door, everyone needs to get up
at least 15 minutes earlier. Rushing is not a
good way to start the day.

Last Pick of the Season
Mrs. McCallister picked the last harvest of the season over the holiday break just in time before they turned into carrott pops in the frozon ground. We were blessed with a bounty of beautiful orange carrotts that were saved from the theiving groundhog throughout the summer (hopefully his diet of fresh veggies keeps him warm over the winter). The Garden Club learned a lot in creating the first CSP garden this spring such as, don't drop the whole pack of carrott seeds in one spot if we want bigger carrotts :)
We are looking forward to planting again in the spring. If you are interested in helping us plant the CSP Garden in the spring, please see Mrs. McCallister.
