Service to others- Teaching our students to give back
Our April PBIS trait is service to others. As we work with our children and help them grow into responsible citizens, we acknowledge it is important to help them see and value service- giving back to our community and to others.
Our activities and messages this month will include being a role model, and ways we can greet others and make a difference in their day. We also have activities planned to focus on taking care of our community and Earth, helping those in need, sharing our talents and developing a sense of patriotism.
I would invite you to share with your children how your family gives service. Perhaps you work and are active in a faith community or a service organization in town. Perhaps there are elderly neighbors or others near you that you help and assist. Talk about these activities and relationships with your kids. Let them know how important it is to help other people, and that our entire community is better when we help those around us. Also, share how helping others makes us feel positive about ourselves and connects our lives to others around us.
Thank you for the support and encouragement you share with us at school as we work with your children. Sharing in this most important partnership can be rewarding and beneficial for those it matters most- our children.
