The Pizitz Post

For Students, Parents & Families - April 18, 2022

Compassion

For the good of our school family, we commit to exemplify acceptance, compassion, kindness and loyalty. At Pizitz, we define compassion as caring enough to do something about someone else's need.


This year we have discussed that our character is the sum of our habits. We can all grow in our compassion by practicing it. Compassion can be a habit, too. It can grow when we listen before we act. It can grow when we serve those in need. It can grow when we seek to see things from another person's perspective. Let's seek to grow in our compassion as we work to be the kind of school family that cares deeply for one other.
