November Character Trait is Empathy!
Before school began this year almost all of our staff were privileged to be trained in a program called "Capturing Kids Hearts". The CKH program is a relationship and skill building program that has been instituted in nearly all classrooms this year. The resources embedded in this article of the newsletter are from CKH and give families some great tools to use at home in both English and Spanish.
