Grade 2 is continuing our work with developing students' social and emotional awareness.
This month is all about being thankful! We are looking to broaden students' vocabulary to think about ways to show gratitude and what they are thankful for. Students can show family member gratitude by telling each other what they are grateful for (not just toys). We want the students to think more deeply about their lives and their family, community and friends.
Please help us by talking with your children, reading books about gratitude and thankfulness, and modeling the desired behavior.
We are all grateful for your continued support and thankful for the help that you provide in and out of school each and every day!
