This week's character strength focus is prudence. Prudent people plan for the future and achieve their goals by making careful everyday choices. People with this strength might be described as practical, judicious, sensible, and careful. To read more about prudence, click here. Third, fourth, and fifth graders were utilizing their character strengths today with a visit from the Merry Go Round Theater, especially the strength of creativity. If you have a child in one of these grade levels, ask him/her to tell you all about it!
Enrichment Day is Saturday, 2/2! Please make sure you read through the information carefully and return your choices as soon as possible. Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis and many classes are already full. Thank you to everyone involved in making this such a great event for our students.
Education Fair packets were sent home with students last week. Thank you to Mrs. Holzwarth for explaining the reading projects to our students! We already have a lot of interest which is awesome. For those students wanting to do a science project, it does need to be a test, versus a model, where students can use the steps of the scientific method to test out a hypothesis. If you have any questions about the Education Fair, please don't hesitate to contact me. Here are just a few pictures from a couple of years ago:
