MSTEP INFORMATION FOR 3-5th GRADE FAMILIES
This week our school community will be focusing on the character strength of Fairness. Fairness means you believe that all people have value. You approach situations with an unbiased mindset and treat everyone with respect.
For individuals, cultivating the character strength of fairness is correlated with highly desirable developmental outcomes. It helps people to become trustworthy friends, responsible citizens, and generally moral people.
To practice and encourage the character strength of fairness with your child, please visit the Positivity Project’s P2 for Families (password: P2) where together you will watch a video, read a quote and talk about the answers to three questions.
Have a wonderful week!

Media Update by Mrs. O'Rourke
Soon it will be Authors in April! We have been loving reading all of the authors’ books in Media. You may purchase books for your child to keep, which can autographed, through the PTA toolkit. Also, save the date for the Authors in April PJ party April 8th. Please reserve your spot in the PTA toolkit.
All students are invited to participate in one or both of the contests we do every year for Authors in April.

Please see attached forms for more info. Let me know if you have any questions.
Adopt A Book Update- Massive, huge, incredible thanks to Mrs. Deshpande & Mrs. Webster for taking on this volunteer job. It is so exciting when the kids get to adopt a book in their honor & donate it to the library! It is also a lot of time to coordinate & I am truly thankful for their work. This year, we will wrap up the Adopt A Book Program in April, to make sure all summer birthdays, etc. are done by mid May.
If you would like to take part in Adopt A Book for the 21-22 school year, please fill out the form on the PTA toolkit or send back the form by April 29, 2022.
