Bobcat Broadcast

February 12, 2021

A Message from Mrs. Caudill


Thank you to all the Bobcats that donated to the Civic Concern drive. We were able to donate nearly 400 food items to Northville Civic Concern. Even during crazy times and changing tides, the Amerman Community finds ways to give back and make a difference! We appreciate your compassion and kindness.❤️A special thanks to Amelia and Rose from Mrs. Parnin's class for helping organize and count all of our donations!


Also, a very Happy Valentine's Day to all of our Amerman Bobcat's. While our Valentine celebrations were a bit different, it was fun hearing their laughter. You could feel the joy in the building.


I hope you take this long weekend to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy this extra long weekend with your family. I look forward to seeing everyone back, ready to learn on Wednesday, February 17.


Stay Safe,

Devon Caudill

February Focus: Kindness! Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Every month Amerman Focuses on a new theme and Leader in Me Habit of the Month. The focus for the month of February is Kindness and our Habit of the Month is Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood



This month’s Habit: Habit #5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood


What this means: Listen before you talk. In order to communicate effectively, we must first understand each other.


“I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.”

“I try to see things from their viewpoints.”

“I listen to others without interrupting.”

“I am confident in voicing my ideas.”

“I look people in the eyes when talking.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. Listen.

2. Put yourself in the other person’s place.

3. Notice a person’s body language, tone, and reflection in their voice.


Great Books for Habit #5-Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
