Character Word of the Month: Generosity

This month we will be focusing on our character word for the month: generosity. Generosity means giving from the heart without expecting anything in return. Our 3-5 graders will be participating in our "Lend a Hand" project this month. Each week we will be focusing on ways we can help our fellow neighbor or classmates and be generous. Our K-2 students will be learning about the Rainbow Fish and we will be focusing on ways we can be generous through sharing. The last week of school we will be continuing our tradition of reading "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." We will be talking about ways the grinch could have been generous instead of stealing Christmas.

Math Day is December 4th
