This week we introduced our first Life Skill of the year: Respect! Ten brave fifth grade leaders presented during assembly; they explained how to earn a Respect Bobcat Head cutout and what it means to show respect. Teachers began passing out Bobcat Heads to recognize students demonstrating respectful behavior. Students will continue to focus on showing Respect throughout the month of September.
This week we also began our counselor led SEL lessons in kindergarten and second grade classrooms. We read the book One, by Kathryn Otoshi, which facilitated discussion on respect and how to stand up for oneself and others. Please visit our Bridge Point SEL website at bpesel.weebly.com to see when we will be visiting your child’s classroom!
