Hello December!!

The second graders have some exciting events happening during the month of December.  First of all we are asking for any parents who would like to share their holiday culture, tradition,  or customs please let us know.  We will invite you in to chat with the children.  This will allow us to get to know a variety of different cultures.

Secondly, in the spirit of giving for the holiday season, we will be starting an Acts of Kindness awareness.  Please see the description below.  We are looking forward to seeing how kind everyone can be to each other.

Acts of Kindness

With the holiday season upon us, we have been talking with the children about “giving”.  We have let the children know that giving is not necessarily connected with material objects but more importantly, giving of oneself in acts of kindness.  We are encouraging the children to perform at least two acts of kindness every day: one at school and one at home.

The homework for the next few weeks will be to record the acts of kindness on the attached sheet.  Please sign the sheet each day and have your child bring it in their homework folder.  This way they will be able to share their acts of kindness with us and we can discuss the true meaning of the holiday season.

Happy Holidays,
Mrs. Tigges, Mrs. Lewis & Ms. Stone
