"Unlock the Treasure in Every Child" - March 14, 2022
Love of Learning!
Our focus this week will be on the character strength Love of Learning.
Those with a love of learning are intrinsically motivated and engaged in a topic regardless of achieving an external standard. They enjoy learning simply for the sake of learning. They don’t need a prize or a high grade as a reward. Their reward is the process of doing the work and improving.
The parent virtue for the Love of Learning is Wisdom and Knowledge. Strengths of wisdom and knowledge are cognitive strengths related to the acquisition and use of information. Strengths comprised in this virtue are creativity, curiosity, open-mindedness, love of learning and perspective
Please use these quotes, video links, and character card to host conversations with your child about the character strength.
"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow." ~Anthony J. D'Angelo
"Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere." ~Chinese Proverb

Hey BCES families! We are offering another opportunity to spread mulch and beautify our campus this Sunday March 20 from 1-5p. Please bring your wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, and garden gloves, as we will need as many of these tools as possible (you might even want to label what's yours so you are sure to go home with it!). We will provide snacks and drinks but there may not be bathroom access so please plan accordingly. Come for some part or all of the time allotted. We could really use as much help as possible! Please contact Melissa Nelson (email@example.com) or Kristen Crawford (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or to let us know to expect you!
