T.H.E. Trail Guide
March 9, 2023
Trail Guide 15
Character Trait of the Month
This month’s focus is Cooperation. One way to think about Cooperation is “working together to reach shared goals.” At home, talk about how this definition applies to how you work together. One way your family can practice cooperation at home is by planning a time where everyone needs to work together to accomplish a shared goal like cleaning up the space you live in or making a meal together. Make sure everyone has a role to play with specific tasks. When the project is complete, discuss and celebrate how each person’s part was important to the end result.
Your follow up at home reinforcing your child as he/she demonstrates “cooperation” each day would be a wonderful home-school connection. Thank you for raising such amazing children and for your continued support of our school community.
Have a wonderful March!
Jennifer Knight, T.H.E. Principal
