Hadfield Way

Hey there Huskies! We had our all school assembly where we finished up our focus on empathy, and with the help of our 4th graders, introduced our theme for December; EMOTION MANAGEMENT! Our 4th graders reviewed the different Zones and provided students with strategies to get back to green. Students are now focused on finding ways to respond appropriately to situations, and when feeling blue, yellow or red, utilize some different ways to get back to green. We encourage you talk to your student at home about using their strategies to get back to the green zone. Thank you for your continued support as we continue to grow and build our Hadfield Community!
