5th grade students attending the Fort Bragg trip should arrive to school at 7am on Tues., 5/23 so we can have an on-time departure! Have an amazing time!
As we wrap up the year, we are focusing on habit 6, Synergize. We are considering how we use our learning and skills to work collaboratively. When we synergize, we know that together we can accomplish more than any one of us can accomplish alone.
February and March found us Seeking First to Understand and then to be Understood. We are thinking about our listening skills and ensuring that we are both listening and hearing our classmates in play, in projects, and in discussions. We also celebrated Kindness in February this month with the Great Kindness Challenge and in March, we honed our Leadership Skills thanks to our APEX Athletes.
In December and January, we focused on Think Win-Win. This means we look to find solutions, to compromise, and we make it a priority for everyone to feel heard. It also means we work on how to handle our feelings when we don't get exactly what we want.
In November, we are focusing on the third habit - Put First Things First. This means thinking about our priorities and doing the things that matter most before we do the things that are fun, but less important or less urgent. Part of putting first things first is focusing on our relationships and our community - so we are hosting a Soles 4 Souls shoe drive! Check out our flyer or their website for more information!
In October, we practiced the second habit - Begin with the End in Mind! This means setting goals so you know where you are headed! Watch for our Begin... song and lyrics coming soon!
In September, we practiced the first habit - Be Proactive. Watch Mrs. Cook & Mrs. Botonis' classes singing the "Bee Proactive" song and Mrs. Williams' 4/5 combo class singing our "Be Proactive" song with hand motions. Click HERE to get the lyrics to the "Be Proactive" song so you can practice at home!
You can also watch a video from last year - Mrs. Maynard and Mr. Beatty's classes sing the "Seven Habits" song for us. Special thanks to our students for their talent and to Mrs. Adams for writing the lyrics and music and developing the hand motions!
