Character Trait of The Month...
- Do kind and thoughtful things for people in need;
- Put other people's needs before your own;
- Volunteer your time and resources for charity;
- Managing resources so that you can give and share them with those in need.
Students will learn more about this month's character trait in weekly Guidance lessons.
Hello LVES Families! This month during our guidance class lessons, students will be learning about the character trait of Giving. People are giving when they do kind and thoughtful things for others. Students will understand the importance of helping others and ways they may be able to use their time or talents to help others in need, as well as simply giving kindness to others. We have talked about “bucket filling” as a way of giving to others--it means filling someone’s invisible bucket of feelings by saying or doing something that makes them feel better. Students have learned that we should all be bucket fillers, and not bucket dippers. Ask your child if they have filled anyone’s bucket today!
Hola familias de LVES! Este mes, durante nuestras clases de orientación, los estudiantes aprenderán sobre el rasgo del carácter de Dar. Las personas dan cuando hacen cosas amables y reflexivas por los demás. Los estudiantes comprenderán la importancia de ayudar a los demás y las formas en que pueden usar su tiempo o talento para ayudar a los necesitados, así como simplemente brindar bondad a los demás. Hemos hablado acerca de “llenar el cubo” como una forma de dar a los demás: significa llenar el cubo invisible de sentimientos de alguien diciendo o haciendo algo que los haga sentir mejor. Los estudiantes han aprendido que todos deberíamos ser rellenadores de cubos y no cucharones. ¡Pregúntele a su hijo si ha llenado el cubo de alguien hoy!
