May It Be of Benefit

Hello Families,

This month as a school community, we will be focusing on kindness. What better time of year than the month of St. Valentine, right? Join us at home by checking in with your child to see if what he/she is hearing and learning at school is showing up at home.

What is Kindness?

Kindness is the ability and willingness to express care and compassion for others. Kindness is a choice to use our time, talent, and resources to better the lives of others and the world through genuine acts of love, compassion, generosity, and service.

Why focus on Kindness?

  • Kindness boosts positive emotions. Acts of kindness create neural pathways that enhance feelings of well-being and the natural flow of feel-good endorphins and neurotransmitters.
  • Kindness is self-replicating. When we perform an act of kindness, it is likely to encourage others to act in a similar way.
  • Kindness reduces stress and anxiety. Kindness promotes positive relationships with other people. Anything that helps you to build bonds with other people helps decrease anxiety.

Kindness in Action:

  • Celebrate small things. Start each day with Good Things as a class. Publicly and privately affirm kind and thoughtful actions and attitudes.
  • Create opportunities for students to regularly affirm each other. Once a week, dedicate time for students to write notes of affirmation to classmates and school staff members.
  • Model Kindness. Be mindful of body language, tone, and mindset. Kindness is learned by example!

With gratitude,

New Bike Rack

Thanks to the generosity of Healthy Shasta, our school received this wonderful new bike rack. I encourage families to work with their children to create a safe route to school and make good use of our new bike rack. This rack will accommodate several bikes. So, create a safe route, make sure you have a helmet and a bike lock, and start peddling to school- what a healthy way to start and end each school day! Thanks, Healthy Shasta!
