Happy February!! Can you believe we are approaching the second round of parent teacher conferences at the end of this month? This year is flying by!

During the month of February all of our students will be learning all about friendship skills!  We will be talking about how to invite others to play, playing fairly, making amends, and how to handle name calling.

We have been teaching our students this year about the importance of having empathy for other students. This includes inviting those who may be alone at recess to join in and play! When we invite others to play, we know we are doing the right thing, plus we gain a new friend in the process! What could be better? :)

When dealing with peers who may call us names, we teach students the importance of being assertive and asking the person to stop and how to report the problem to an adult if the name calling continues. By the end of this lesson and the bullying prevention lessons provided this month, all students should understand the importance of using a strong, confident voice to ask someone to stop and if it continues how to effectively report the bullying.

As parents and teachers, it’s important for us to ensure students know how to include others and play fairly as well as how to handle any bullying should it ever occur to them or someone else.

We are excited to see how our students incorporate this into their lives to help them have successful and positive interactions with their peers! Thank you for your constant support! :)
