Teaching Children to Practice Acts of Kindness

Being kind to other people and yourself is important for being a good friend and being happy. Modeling kindness, reflecting on kind actions, and practicing acts of kindness can help children develop this skill. This article includes strategies for helping children learn to be kind to other people and to themselves.

Thriving Learning Communities

Hopefully you had an opportunity to talk with your children about their survey results and to learning more about their strengths. Below you will find a link where you can take a free survey. It isn't as extensive as what the students took but it is still worth the time to take and to learn about your own strengths.

Final Forms

If you and/or your child haven't had the opportunity to complete your final forms please try to update them as soon as possible.

Charge the Chromebooks!

Please make sure your child gets in the habit of charging their chrome books each evening. It is important that they come to school prepared and the chrome books are as important to class as bringing paper and pencils. They will need their computers to fully participate in instruction in most classes.
