Notes from the counselor- Character Word of the Month- Kindness
For the month of September, we are focusing on the character word, kindness. Kindness means being friendly to others. At the end of the month each teacher, K-5, will choose one student who showed the most growth in kindness. That student will receive an award and a prize for being a good role model.
Spend time writing encouraging notes to people in your community. This could be neighbors, policemen, teachers, anyone! Have your child go with you to deliver the notes of kindness.

Talk About it!
Here are some discussion points to help you talk about kindness with your child:
Tell me about a time when someone was kind to you. How did it make you feel?
What do you think kindness means and why is it important?
Who is someone in your class you can be kind to?
What are ways you can be kind to people at home, at school and in the community.
