Trait of the Month: Gratitude
As you know, each month, the students and staff attend a Trait Assembly to kick of the character trait of the month. Held on the first Early Release Day of each month, identified classes may share a performance, video, written message, or pieces of art they have created with the rest of the school on what this trait means to them. Teachers then incorporate lessons and art activities in their weekly plans with the children to further explore the Trait of the Month. For November our focus is on GRATITUDE. Defined by Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary as a feeling of appreciate or thanks. Students in the Sunstone, Jade, and Onyx classes are hosting this month’s assemblies. The assemblies will be held next Wednesday at both sites. They will be sharing what Gratitude means to them.
Gratitude comes in many forms. GRATITTUDE for their family, school, life, siblings, pets, food, peace and love, and Maria Montessori, as well as a poem on GRATITUDE. For me, I am grateful for our CMP Family of Staff, Children, and Parents. To be part of such a special community where we value the whole child and the gifts in each of us is heartwarming. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this journey with you all. In the day to day hustle and bustle it can be so easy to forget all that we have to be grateful for, so I invite you all to discuss with your child(ren) what GRATITUDE means to them and identify the ways in which they demonstrate gratitude each and every day.
