School-Wide Grace & Courtesy Focus
The language for identifying/naming COURAGE in "The Self-Awakened Child" series by Jonathan Wolff:
- When I make a mistake and I tell the truth about what I did, I am acting with Courage.
- When I keep trying to learn something that is hard or scary for me to do, I am acting with Courage.
- When I try a new food or talk to a child in class I did not know before, I am acting with Courage.

Please ensure that your student brings their SCCPSS device to school, fully charged. If your student has testing accommodations that allow the test to be read to them, they will need their own personal set of earbuds/headphones.

This week, we celebrated our Peer Mediators. Peer Mediation is problem solving and conflict resolution by students with students. Peer Mediators at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy are honest peacemakers and leaders. If your child or someone you know needs a referral for peer mediation, or needs any resources, please reach out to our school counselors. Resources are available on the School Counseling Website including a list of mental health professionals and relaxation activities.
