December Character Trait: Caring
It’s December and the perfect month to talk about CARING at Sequoia. During this month we will be providing our students opportunities for personal growth and development. They will be encouraged to step outside themselves and show others they care. From sending CARE-grams, to making chalk murals on the blacktop for all to see, it is our intention to help students become more caring, compassionate, empathetic young people!
