Good Morning Scholars,
I hope you enjoyed the long weekend and were able to get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather. Do you know why we had Monday off of school? Each year on the third Monday in February we celebrate George Washington’s birthday. President’s Day is a holiday that was created to honor our first President who was born on February 22, 1732. Although it was originally created to celebrate George Washington, today we often think of it as a day to celebrate all of our nation’s Presidents and the commitment they make to serving and protecting our country.
Speaking of commitment, how have you and your classmates been showing commitment and empathy this month? Are you working towards your goals even when things get tricky or hard? How have you been showing random acts of kindness to others? These are things we will celebrate at our monthly assembly and topics that we may address with your parents at conferences next week.
Part of my job is to help students be better learners and this includes thinking of ways that we can be positive members of our school community. Showing the PYP attitudes is a great place to start when thinking about how we should act at school. Are you able to name all twelve PYP attitudes? I hope so and I will be looking and listening to catch many of you showing these attitudes throughout the week.
Work hard and be kind,
