Theme for Our Year- #BeKind

Big picture

October Theme: Respect

As we move into this month, we will continue to dive deeper on our theme this year #BeKind. In a time of a worldwide pandemic, civil unrest, and polarized politics- I'm sure we all feel we could all use a little more kindness. In the month of September, we will be discussing spreading kindness through the concept of Respect. The focus of this Respect Unit is on:

  • Students learning how to respect themselves, others, and their community.
  • Differentiating between emotions and feelings
  • Supporting students in expressing their emotions and feelings in healthy ways that promote respect for themselves and others.
  • Allowing students to explore self care, respectful communication, and problem solving from a variety of perspectives.
