APRIL 2022, Joyful Teaching! Joyful Learning!

From the Principal's Desk . . . Jacqueline Cubberly

Hello Brookwood,


Happy Spring! I hope you are spending more time outdoors with family, friends and teammates.


Did you know . . .


Yoga helps children manage their anxiety, improves emotional regulation, boosts self-esteem, increases children’s body awareness and mindfulness, enhances concentration and memory, develops children’s strength and flexibility and teaches discipline and reduces impulsivity.


Not only does yoga do all of this for children, it does the same for adults. Check out this site for yoga ideas and take the FREE 30 day challenge!


While yoga is not for everyone, I hope you find some way to recharge and take care of yourself, so that you can continue to take care of your families and others. One of the greatest gifts in life is to be a parent / caregiver. Let's enjoy this gift by being our best.


Be safe and well.

Jacqueline Cubberly


************************************************************************************************

Our Character Trait for the month of April is "PERSEVERANCE"

What is "PERSEVERANCE"

Why is Perseverance Important?

Perseverance implies that a person will persist with a task even when he would rather do something else or when the task becomes difficult. It can make the difference between a child who gives up and one who completes what he sets out to do.

Children who persevere:

  • believe that they are competent and able to master their environment.

  • know they can handle challenges.

  • see themselves as focused and determined.

  • are trustworthy because they do what they say they will do.

  • set goals and work toward achieving them.

  • are more willing to take risks in trying new and difficult situations.

Check it out "Perseverance".
