Week of November 12-15

Veterans Day

Monday, November 11th is a student holiday. We look forward to having students back on campus on Tuesday, November 12th.

Positivity Project-Character Strength of the Week

This week's P2 Character Trait of the week is "Gratitude." Gratitude is the quality of feeling and expressing thankfulness and appreciation. It is an affirmation that there is goodness in other people and the world, and that we have received that goodness. People with the strength of

gratitude have a readiness to show appreciation for kindness and also to return kindness. A leading expert, Robert Emmons, calls gratitude a “relationship-strengthening emotion because it requires us to see how we’ve been supported and affirmed by other people.”

Lost and Found

Please have your child check our "Lost & Found" for anything that they may have left behind at school. We are beginning to accumulate a great deal of jackets and hoodies. The lost and found is located in our cafeteria. It would also be helpful if you wrote your child's name in their jacket or hoodie.
