Keep an eye out for these bear paws popping up all over campus. . . maybe even in your child’s backpack!
What are they? They are part of a new program we are kicking off this year at The Learning Center called Kindness in the Classroom. On the reverse side of each paw print, you’ll find the following:
Teachers and staff are implementing a Kindness in the Classroom program that addresses and teaches important life skills such as assertiveness, caring, compassion, fairness, gratitude, integrity, helpfulness, perseverance, respect, responsibility, self-care and self-discipline. These concepts are presented in ways that are differentiated for each grade to account for students’ developmental levels.
This will be an on-going campaign.
Be sure to ask your student about what they are learning!
