Covey Habit 5:  Parent Tip

Habit 5 is “Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood”.  We also say “Listen before you talk”.  At school, we try to instill in students and staff that it is important to listen to what someone else has to say first before we speak.  Covey says this helps us all communicate at a higher level.

Try playing this game with your child:  Say a phrase in two different tones of voice.  Using different tones, as you know, can give the same phrase a completely different meaning.  Talk with your child about how their tone of voice can affect communication.

Another tip for older students is to ask your child to let you know when they don’t feel you are listening to them.  Thank them for telling you, listen to what they have to say, and keep talking until both of you feel understood.

Welcome to North Cedar Elementary School!  It is a privilege to work in partnership with students and their families as we develop young leaders who achieve at high levels.  It is our goal to teach the whole child; not just the child who learns to read, write, and solve math problems.  While academics are vitally important to everyone, we believe that teaching students how to work together, think critically, and problem solve are even more important skills to develop.

 We are a PK-6 elementary school in the northern area of Cedar Falls.  We have two sections of each grade level, with the exception of our preschool room, and we really function as a big family.  Family and community partnerships are very important to us, and we hope you feel that sense of togetherness as you become part of our school.  Our staff cares deeply for all children, and we work extremely hard each day to give each child what they need to be successful. 

We’re excited for the new year!  Please visit North Cedar to experience all the great things going on here!
