"Unlock the Treasure in Every Child" - September 23, 2019
This week our students will be learning about the character trait of This week our students will be learning about the character trait of Teamwork/Citizenship!
What does Teamwork/Citizenship mean? You work well as a member of a group or
team. You are loyal and sacrifice your individual desires for the greater good.
The character trait of Teamwork/Citizenship falls within the parent virtue of Justice. Strengths of justice refer to the optimal relationship between the individual and the group or community, versus the more one-to-one relationships in the humanity virtue. These strengths include teamwork/citizenship, fairness, and leadership.
Nick Saban once said, "You can't win together if you don't work together" and Bill Belichick stated, "On a team, it's not the strength of the individual players, but it is the strength of the unit and how they function together."
Please use these quotes and discuss with your child what they learn about Teamwork/Citizenship this week.
2019-2020 Matey Mini-thon!!
Parents and families—this year’s main fundraiser is the Buckhorn Creek Matey Mini-thon! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a pep rally on Tuesday, 10/1. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Buckhorn Creek Matey Mini-thon, which will happen on 10/11. This year our goal is to raise $25,000 for Playground Shades, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.
Students will also experience an amazing character theme, Mindspark: Wild West! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the mindspark kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.
Donations will go toward Playground Shades and the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on funrun.com. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Buckhorn Creek Matey Mini-thon. Thanks so much for your support!
