Love and Kindness is in the air at Eula Elementary. Our Character Trait for the month is 'KiNdNeSs' and we have a whole calendar of events ready to show what we know. 'Kindness' is showing others that they are valuable by how you treat them. Be sure to check out the parent newsletter for February below.
Last month we learned about 'Responsibility' and what that looks like. Responsibility is proving you can be trusted with what is expected of you. Each homeroom teacher teaches a short lesson on Friday mornings to help integrate our traits into the classroom. I will wrap up my 'Responsibility' lessons with each class this first week of February.
