We are having College and Career Week this month, March 6th through March 10th. Students can dress for success with an outfit or uniform of their favorite career on Friday, March 10th, to show what they would like to be when they grow up. Take time to have conversations with your child to see what careers interests them. You can also explore college campuses together virtually at https://campustours.com/ . It is never too early to get your child interested in their college and career goals.
Our character trait this month is Cooperation. Make sure to join us on Monday, March 6th by wearing green to spotlight our character trait as we continue to support social emotional learning, SEL, with our students. Cooperation is about making sure we know how to be on a team or work in a group towards a common goal.
Here is the definition we are using:
Cooperation: Working together and helping others.
We want students to know how to work hard on their own. But, just as important, we want them to know what it looks like to be a part of a really supportive, helpful, empowering team. We will be thinking about the skills needed to work together well and how each of us contributes to a group in big and small ways. We will think about our strengths and our areas of growth. We will take part in fun challenges to put our teamwork to the test and grow, together, toward the common goal of a more helpful, kind, cooperative world!
Sometimes you just feel like doing things all by yourself. What is something that someone can do to help you to get into the spirit of Cooperation?
When we are working with others, it can be tough when a teammate is not cooperating. How do you deal with that frustration? What can you say to the teammate to tell them how you feel?
Talk about a time when you worked on a really effective team. What were the ingredients? What did you contribute? How did they help you?
Questions You Could Ask
What are some activities where it’s easy for you to practice Cooperation? Which activities make it difficult? Why do you think that is?
Do you like working together with other people? Can you name some things you do at home that require Cooperation or teamwork?
Who is someone you love to work with? What makes it easy to Cooperate with them?
