Last week we introduced our December Life Skill: Perseverance. The choice to focus on perseverance at this particular time of year was very intentional. Often as we approach the winter break, students find it challenging to stay motivated. Fun parties, performances, schedule changes, impending travel plans, and thoughts of gifts and celebrations, though exciting are also distracting and exhausting. Kids and grownups alike find it hard to maintain focus this time of year, so it’s especially important that we practice perseverance.
This week our fourth grade No Place for Hate Student Council members began promoting our second No Place for Hate activity of the year: Bully Free Dress Up Week! Next week, each day will have a themed dress up day to further our goal of a friendly and inclusive campus! Fifth grade No Place for Hate Student Council will talk more in depth each day next week about how to achieve our goal of being a Bully-Free campus. See the picture below for specifics about each dress up day.
