"Auburn Pride Starts Inside"
March 17, 2023
Dear Auburn Families,
Next week is our Book Fair! Please see the flyers below to learn how your child can purchase books. We want all of our students to be able to participate in the joy of the Book Fair, so please do not let cost prohibit your child from participating. Contact the office if you are in need of a book scholarship.
Spring Pictures are Tuesday, April 4th and the order form is below. All students do not have their picture taken, we must be notified that you would like for your child to have their picture taken. If your child missed picture day in the fall, or you would like for them to have retakes, please notify your child’s teacher.
Next Thursday is Literacy Night: Books, Pie and Bingo! Please join us at 6:00 as we transform Auburn Elementary into Auburn City! We will have our very own bakery, post office, restaurant, bowling alley, bingo hall and more. We will also have free books for kids and fabulous raffle prizes. This is our culminating event for March is Reading Month and we can’t wait to see you there!
Next week is the last week to turn in your March is Reading Month Bingo Sheet. Every student who turns one in wins a prize!
And last, but not least, thanks to the entire community for reading J.D. and the Great Barber Battle this month. It has definitely brought our community together. So many students have been showing off their very own haircuts and telling me their favorite parts of the book. It is great to see their love of reading and learning!
Have a fabulous weekend,
The Book Fair is March 20-24!

Positivity Project- Perspective
This week our school community will be focusing on the character strength of Perspective. Perspective means you appreciate when people see things in different ways. You have the ability to understand the world from multiple points of view.
Perspective is also referred to as wisdom and is distinct from intelligence. People with this strength are sought out for advice because they see the big picture and can make sense of the world’s complexity. This strength of perspective gives individuals the ability to see to the heart of difficult matters and achieve clarity. Most importantly, they are honest and behave in an ethically consistent manner.
Perspective helps an individual make sense of the world. It provides clarity on what matters and what does not. Being able to see things from multiple angles helps individuals remain calm and learn from mistakes; they are typically highly self-aware. Reflecting on their own feelings, thoughts, and motives helps them understand and empathize with other people. These individuals are strong listeners and ask great questions. Individuals with the strength of perspective help their group get through difficult or uncertain circumstances because they’re poised and can identify opportunities for success.
To practice and encourage the character strength of perspective with your child, please visit the Positivity Project’s P2 for Families (password: P2), where together you will watch a video, read a quote, and talk about the answers to three questions.
Have a wonderful week!
