This year we are implementing a program that will strengthen the character of our community. Students will participate in weekly focus lessons that will help jump start their mornings. We nee your support in holding our kids accountable! Here is a link with more details about Positivity Project. Try to have ongoing conversations about the weekly topics so they hear the same language from all angles.
Sticks and Stones Overruled by Words...
We have an increasing amount of students having unhealthy conversations or interactions with themselves and their peers. Please help redirect those conversations or interactions by changing the language and teaching the appropriate language. Some of the language exchanged between students eludes to self harm or hatred against others. We have to equip our kids with the right words to say. At our level we realize that our students have true frustrations from low self esteem, unstable friendships/relationships, academic struggles or the initial understanding of family dynamics.
Here is an article that explains how we can equip our kids with better options to express our angers and frustration. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13PNcyUHiu5gLHoCB5Mb_4Ht-hpkHnwMU/view?usp=sharing
**If you need additional resources, please contact your 5th or 6th grade counselor. You may also see the links below for after hour assistance as needed.
***Please note that if students are reported as using such language, we will take precautionary steps to get them the assistance necessary for the safety and security of all students involved.
It’s hard to know why a child is consistently unhappy, angry, aggressive, or anxious or why a child persistently behaves in ways that are just not acceptable. Check out Children’s Services at Tri-County offers resources for your child or children.
Montgomery County Youth Services is now called YES to YOUTH has valuable resources they offer for students support outside of school. Please click here to see all of their resources and upcoming community events.
Motivation Never Gets Old...
On Going Healthy Converstions...
6th grade and 5th grade monthly guidance groups are using a curriculum called WhyTry?/Resiliency to encourage students to be “On the Right Track” and teaching them how to apply “Resiliency” in a variety of ways. Here are some of the visual pieces that you can use to help extend the conversation with your kids. These analogies help kids change the language and change the climate of our youth.Cyber Safety (Kids Presentation)
