In February, we learned about being considerate. Please continue to speak with your child about being thoughtful about the feelings and needs of others. The character trait for March is Cooperation. We show cooperation by listening to the ideas of others, and working with others to reach a goal. Please encourage your students to participate in our weekly character challenges:
Show cooperation by encouraging others to participate when working together in a group.
Show cooperation by working out problems without arguing or fighting.
Show cooperation by listening to others.
Show cooperation by letting someone else take the lead in a group project.
Thanks so much! Let’s make it a great March.
Spring Picture Day
College and Career Day
On Friday, March 30th, 2018 from 8:30am to 10:30am, our school will be having “College Career Day.” On this day, we need volunteers to speak with students in grade K-5 about their college and/or careers. We would like the students to hear about different careers and understand the relevance of academic learning to the tasks they might someday perform in the working world. It is a great experience for the students of North Metro Academy of Performing Arts to learn and explore the many different careers that exist in our community!
In preparation for this exciting day, we need to know if you would be willing to come to our school and talk about your career for about 15 minutes per class. Here are some of the things you can discuss in your presentation:
The education/training required for your field.
What a typical day in your career is like.
What character traits are required for your field?
Feel free to bring props, souvenirs, uniforms, etc.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me or email me. We truly appreciate you for your generosity. We could not do this without you! Thank you on behalf of the staff and students of North Metro Academy of Performing Arts.
