Parents please make sure that your child is bringing a refillable water bottle to school every day. We are not using the water drinking fountains instead students are using our water bottle refillable stations to refill their bottles. Thank you.

Counselor Corner

Contentment & Gratitude:

Turning what we already have into enough

“It is not happy people who are thankful; it is thankful people who are happy.”

During the month of November, we will be discussing the ability to show contentment and gratitude in our Social Emotional Classes. The ability to show contentment and gratitude not only allows us to feel at peace with the possessions we have, but it also helps us to build strong relationships with others. Gratitude is not an instinct; it has to be taught. All young children are egocentric by nature, but there are many ways we can help them appreciate the things and people in their lives.


· is polite (says “please” and “thank you” when appropriate)

· is able to identify the things and people he or she is thankful for

· acknowledges the things that other people do for him/her

· is content with the possessions that he or she has currently – is not constantly seeking new/better things.


Find a time during the day where you and your children talk about the things you are grateful for. One idea is to share a “rose” and a “thorn” at dinner each night. A rose a great thing that happened during the day and a thorn is a not-so-great thing that happened. This reinforces the idea that we can be grateful even when things are not going our way.
