Hello LVES Families! I want to thank all of you whose children participated in our Great Kindness Challenge! I have received so many completed Acts of Kindness Checklists, and a lot of positive feedback from teachers and parents about this Project Vinátta activity! I am still working on filling out all of the Character Award certificates, so if your child turned in a checklist and has not yet received their award and gift certificate to Mighty Fine, don’t worry, it will be delivered to them or their teacher soon! I really appreciate everyone’s support with this school-wide kindness initiative!
The character trait we are learning about during our guidance lessons in February is Fairness. Fairness means practicing justice, equity, and equality, cooperating with one another, and recognizing the uniqueness and value of each other. Students will be understanding ways to show fairness by playing by the rules, taking turns, sharing, being open-minded, not blaming others, and treating all people fairly.
“Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.”~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Hola familias de LVES!
¡Quiero agradecerles a todos ustedes cuyos niños participaron en nuestro Reto de la Gran Amabilidad! ¡He recibido tantas listas de verificación de actos de bondad completas y muchos comentarios positivos de maestros y padres sobre esta actividad del Proyecto Vinátta! Todavía estoy trabajando para completar todos los certificados del Premio al Carácter, por lo que si su hijo entregó una lista de verificación y aún no ha recibido el premio y el certificado de regalo de Mighty Fine, no se preocupe, se lo entregaremos a ellos o a su maestro. ¡pronto! ¡Realmente aprecio el apoyo de todos con esta iniciativa de amabilidad en toda la escuela!
El rasgo de carácter que estamos aprendiendo durante nuestras lecciones de orientación en febrero es la imparcialidad. Equidad significa practicar justicia, equidad e igualdad, cooperar unos con otros y reconocer la singularidad y el valor de los demás. Los estudiantes comprenderán formas de mostrar justicia al cumplir las reglas, tomar turnos, compartir, tener una mentalidad abierta, no culpar a los demás y tratar a todas las personas de manera justa.
“Vive para que cuando tus hijos piensen en justicia, cuidado e integridad, piensen en ti.” ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
