Character Word of the Month: Compassion

Welcome back to a new semester! I hope everyone enjoyed their Holiday break! We have some very exciting things happening this month. We have a new character word for this month: Compassion. Compassion means caring for and helping others. If someone needs help, you can show compassion by offering to help them. We have a need for compassion in our world, and our students will be learning ways that they can show compassion towards others through our guidance lessons.
