THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK…
This is something new that we have introduced to our curriculum. Each week the teachers and the student will have an age appropriate discussion about the ‘Thought for the Week’. Their discussion will focus on character education which helps children understand, identify, and process their feelings in appropriate ways. The intention is to promote social and emotional development, self-control, positive self-esteem, emotional awareness, and basic problem-solving skills. Which in turn teaches friendship skills and how their behavior impacts others.
I am part of a community and I am learning how my community comes together.
June 4th - I will learn to forgive peolple when they hurt me.
June 11th - I will learn to accept forgivness from others.
June 18th - I know how to show I am sorry.
