From the Counselors

January’s word of the month is Optimism. Optimism is a mental state or a mindset that believes that there is hope in the future. Having a hope in the future gives you confidence. During connection circles, students are sharing what they hope to get better at this year and sharing ways to stay optimistic. Here are some ways you can help your child develop an optimistic attitude:

  1. Set an example - model how to learn from your mistakes and stay optimistic when something is difficult

  2. See the best in each other - encourage your child and recognize their accomplishments. Help them to recognize their own successes and effort, too!

  3. Focus on the day’s events that went well and the good things to look forward to each day.
