Las Positas Mission Statement is:
- To develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring students who become active, compassionate, life-long learners and globally responsible citizens.
On Monday, 9/19, the 5th grade team partnered with The Gary Center in providing a Las Positas Lion’s Market demonstrating a perfect example of the IB motto: “Think Globally, Act Locally.” Thanks to their generous donations and the concerted efforts of the 5th grade team, students shopped and filled their bags with a variety of items. The fifth grade students will continue to host the monthly market throughout the school year setting up the items and helping younger students shop. IB learners will experience first hand the importance of helping others. We also plan for students to help pack bags to give out to other community groups instead of bringing a bag home. We hope to spark caring advocates who show compassion by helping others!
Research proves that people who help others are happier. Please, model how to help others by getting involved in local organizations.
Catch your child being a good "communicator" and tweet it out @laspositaslions or send them for me to share.
Have a great weekend~
Books that Exemplify the Attribute Communicators:
Ping by Ani Castillo
In the era of social media, communication feels both more anxiety-producing, and more inescapable, than ever before. This clever, comforting picture book debut explores the challenges and joys of self-expression and social connection.
Using an imaginative visual metaphor to bring to life how we send out (ping!) and receive (pong!) communications, Ani Castillo's words and pictures will empower and inspire anyone who has experienced the fear of sharing themselves with the world.
With an artful, accessible package, an eloquent message, and a lot of heart, here is a new classic to bring courage and comfort to humans of all ages. ( Goodreads, 2021)
