Las Positas Updates
12/02/22 Volume 2 (18)
Welcome to the month of festivities.
There are so many things we celebrate this month with lots of fun, food, and festivities. As we wrap up the year 2022, let's put a reflective lens on and make sure that we are guiding our children to have a very healthy and balanced life.
- Yes have fun, but let's not ignore our responsibilities.
- Yes, enjoy the yummy food and treat ourselves to somethings we normally don't, but make sure to do it with moderation and balance it with a healthy exercise plan.
- Yes, be festive and splurge with decorations and gifts, but make sure that it is evenly matched with meaningful time with the people and don't go overboard that it becomes tedious or meaningless.
I hope that these thoughts help you and your family have a more meaningful holiday season.
The IB Learner Profile Balance aims to develop learners who are balanced. Our goal is to allow students to discover and understand the importance of balancing different aspects of their lives. Focusing on the intellectual, physical and emotional in order to achieve well being for themselves and others. We would like for our students to recognize their interdependence with other people and with the world in which they live.

Catch your child being a "balanced" and tweet it out @laspositaslions or send them for me to share.
Have a great weekend~
