Character Trait and Mindfulness Activity of the Month
Every month, we focus on a character trait to instill great character into our cubs. The character trait for the month of October is Sharing. Sharing includes sharing things and sharing ideas! As a reminder, teachers will be choosing one student this month who has exhibited sharing the most to represent his/her class as the Cub of the Month.
Each month, we will feature a mindfulness activity on the announcements, during class meetings, and on our eCLASS page. You can watch Mrs. Woodworth do a demonstration of each month’s activity on the counseling eCLASS page. This month is “Slowly, Slowly”.
It’s time to start logging your October reading rewards minutes! October reading logs were sent home in the Friday, Oct. 1st weekly folders. Prizes for students that completed the September log will be awarded after fall break!
Participating students will read and log at least 20 minutes per day for at least 20 days in the month. Students can read independently or with their parents at home. Logs will be sent home monthly in the weekly folders. After completing the monthly requirement, logs are returned to the homeroom teacher. Parent initials are required in order to verify the reading.
If you have any questions about the Reading Rewards program, please contact Jennifer.Alden@gcpsk12.org.
