Hello Glenmar families! I cannot believe it’s already November, can you?

The school year is in full swing, and this month, students will learn conflict resolution strategies in their classroom guidance lessons.  Kindergarteners will learn about Buzz the Bee and what to do when someone is ‘bugging’ them. Students in first and second grade will discuss how our words and actions are powerful, and will determine the different between ‘tattling’ and ‘reporting.’ In addition, they will develop a list of skills and strategies to use before getting adult help, such as using an I-statement when    asking someone to stop, ignoring, and walking away.  Third graders will differentiate between mean and nice teasing to determine when they may be hurting someone’s feelings.  In fourth grade, students will compare   stories from multiple perspectives in     order to see an alternate point of view on conflict.  Lastly, fifth graders will be introduced to the concepts of a fixed and a growth mindset to set a goal that can be attained with practice. 

I hope that you continue these important conversations at home with your scholars! It is critical that they  receive the same messages at home, and are confident in their ability to solve conflicts with others.

In accordance with our virtue of the month, thankful, I am THANKFUL for your continued support of the guidance program at Glenmar!
