Teaching your child about Acceptance and Respect

Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen an increase in students making hurtful comments. I ask that you have conversations with your child about acceptance and respect.

Our children will experience more change, see more places, learn more things, and be exposed to a greater variety of people and cultures than any other generation in the history of humankind. To succeed in this complex and diverse world, they’ll need to develop the capacity for acceptance and respect.

  • How to Promote Acceptance and Respect in Young Children
    • Make your child feel special, safe, and loved. Don’t be sparing with words of praise. A loved child learns to love.
    • Create learning opportunities about new places, people, and cultures. Expose your child to a variety of perspectives through books, songs, food, and cultural events and celebrations.
    • Intervene when you hear or see intolerant behavior. Don’t be punitive — help your child learn healthier ways to interact with others.
    • Use positive comments to shape and reinforce your child’s behavior. Avoid giving instruction using “no” (such as “Don’t do that”). Offering helpful alternatives (“Be gentle with your brother”) will be more productive.
    • Model respect. Your child will learn to reach out and be sensitive and respectful of others by watching how you discuss, relate to, and value other people.

YMCA Giving Campaign

If you were still looking to support a worthwhile organization, I would encourage you to help us meet our other giving goal- our local YMCA.  We are very fortunate that we have the YMCA connected to our school!  They are able to provided needed services to many of families.  We have raised $1,194 of our campus goal of $1,500.00, please click on the link and support our local Y that gives back to many of our Robo Griffins!


Thanks to our PTA

Did you know that our PTA is giving every classroom $200 to updated their classroom libraries?  This will help to ensure that our students have diverse literature in every classroom on campus.  Thanks for always supporting PTA.
