In the Classroom

In Kindergarten through 3rd grade classrooms we will be focusing on Empathy, Compassion, and respecting differences. Empathy is understanding how other people feel (we look for clues on faces, body language, and by looking at the situation), while compassion is showing that we care. We may feel differently or have different preferences than our classmates, but we can still be respectful and kind.

Our 4th and 5th grade classrooms will begin exploring emotion management and ways to calm down strong feelings. These lessons include exploration of how our bodies respond when we experience strong emotions. Ask your child what it means if their "lid flips" and what strategies they can use to calm down.
