Weber Shandwick, a global public relations firm, states that Americans believe a lack of civility has reached crisis proportions.
Civility is defined as polite, respectful behavior. And this is a topic we’re addressing over the next few months in 6th-8th grades Advisement.
This week, we discussed Random Acts of Kindness.You can view the discussion starter video here.
(Note: If you’d like the name and number of Corrie’s hairdresser, I might have it handy.)
The Advisement Facilitators (Mrs. Campbell, Mr. Springthorpe, Mrs. Schiffmann, Dr. Johnson, and Dr. Griffin) talked with the students about various acts of kindness and how it feels to be a recipient of as well as a grantor of these types of acts.
Following this theme, we’ll have an opportunity to donate gloves, mittens, and socks for people of all ages when we return from Thanksgiving holidays. Please put these items on your list if you happen to be out and about.
In 5th grade we continued reading Rules and saw a budding friendship developing between Catherine and Jason.
And in 4th grade, we had our Class Meeting. We shared things we’re thankful for and learned some new things about each other.
I’m truly thankful for our students, families, and teachers!
Happy Thanksgiving, GOC Family!!
