Generosity: WEEK 1

Happy Sunday Buccaneers!


We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving 4-day weekend!


Tomorrow is the last day of November and we are celebrating Native American Heritage Day. This year's theme is resilience and endurance, "We are native people." Please send our ASB a picture and short description of a person who is a role model for you because of their resilience and endurance.


The month of December will be devoted to being generous. There are different ways to show our generosity: we can show we are generous to our parents/guardians by thanking them for everything they do for you, for their love, and their sacrifices. We show our generosity by helping, accepting, and including others. Generosity might look different this year because we cannot volunteer as we used to but there are still many ways we can demonstrate our generosity and help others. We will have an opportunity to practice being generous during "Inclusive Schools Week" on December 7th - 11th. Stay tuned!


Finally, we have three weeks left before the end of the semester. Please do not give up. You got this!!! Let us finish strong!!! We are here to cheer you on to the finish line!!!!!


Let us have a great week!
