Be Considerate

Image result for be considerateNext week we will be discussing Be Considerate.  The definition of being considerate is to be careful to not hurt another. At school we will talk about how we are and can continue to Be Considerate.

We see it throughout the day as children hold doors for each other, use their polite manners, not interrupt their teachers and follow our Wildcat Way expectations.

When we interviewed our students they told us that they can tell when someone is considerate. They shared:

                                                       Help people, say nice things

                                                       Care for someone

                                                       Thinking about how you are acting towards another person, think of others

Your will receive our HOME LINK on Monday and we hope that you take some time to talk about Being Polite, Being Positive and Being Considerate!

BE POSITIVE




Image result for be positive


This week and next week we will be focusing our work with students using the concept to BE POSITIVE. The definition to be positive includes to have an affirmative quality or trait. At school we work on being positive- feeling good- about the work we do, the concepts we learn and the friendships that we cultivate. Sometimes, being positive is hard, but we still work with the students to find the positive in places where mistakes may have occurred or when poor choices were made. We believe that when we think and act positively, we make a positive impact on those around us!

When we asked students what it means to be positive they responded:

To say nice things about someone and not be negative.

To help people, be happy, and don't get mad.

To be honest and nice.

On Tuesday, we sent home a homework link for you all to use with your students to partner with us. When we work together on the same concepts at home and at school, it reinforces the concept. We hope that you will give it a try!

BE POLITE



We kicked off 2018 with aImage result for be polite new initiative for our Wildcats. For the next several weeks we will promote the new signs hanging above doorways inside Windsor focusing on our theme for the year BE..... We started with BE POLITE.  What does it mean to BE POLITE?  Our news crew defined polite using the dictionary as having or showing behavior that is considerate and respectful of others. In other words using manners and being kind.  Each day on announcements students shared sentences using the word polite-some came from students in the building.  Students were asked to try to find where they could find BE POLITE in the building.  We also asked you to partner with us at home by sharing ways your children could demonstrate how they can BE POLITE using the Home Link.

In asking students this week what it means to be polite, they responded:
 Be kind
 To be responsible
 To be kind, safe, and responsible
 You would be kind 
 It means to ask someone if they are ok if they fall and to say hello to people in the hallways.
 Being polite is being yourself and helping others.

It is has been a fun week complimenting students who were polite and used please, thank you and responding to questions with an answer and then a question to the adult (having conversations! ).  Next week, our focus is BE POSITIVE.  Watch for the Home Link to come home on Monday.

January Worthy Wildcats

Congrats to these 6 students who were selected by their peers to be the January Worthy Wildcats.
These students were observed being kind to others everyday and going out of their way to help others, doing their best everyday, pushing others during an entire recess on the swings, helping a younger student when others were not seeing an issue putting materials into the backpack, asking to help carry things and staying outside with a peer in the morning who got hurt on the way to school until help arrived. All of these behaviors demonstrate the Wildcat Way being Kind, Safe and Responsible.
