Good Morning Tesfa Scholars!
Welcome back to school. I hope you had a wonderful break and were able to spend time with family and friends. It is important to stay balanced and take care of your body, mind, and soul!
Last week I talked about attributes of the Leaner Profile. Being open-minded means you know people may speak, act and look differently than you. It means you understand that not everyone will think and believe in things like you do and that is okay. An open-minded person will listen and try to understand others. Remember, as a PYP family of learners, it is important that we choose actions to show we are open-minded people.
The Attitudes are what we want to show and demonstrate in order to become the Profile. We hope you appreciate the beauty of the world and its people and are committed to being a responsible learner each day and showing self-control. Being creative and imaginative in your thinking can help you solve problems. Being curious about the world, its people and cultures can help you gain a new perspective.
Your attitude is important. Did you know that people who live to 100 years old tend to be optimists, are engaged in many activities, stay physically active, and adapt to change easily? This week, keep enthusiasm at the center of everything you do and in your thoughts and attitudes. At the end of the week, reflect on whether this was difficult or easy for you.
