Gobble! Gobble! Gobble! I can almost smell it. Turkey roasting and all the fixings will soon be a welcome smell in most every home. Outside, the earthy smell of the dying leaves perfume the air. The last of jewels are falling from the trees, and at times, the sky looks as if it promises snow. Some days are warm and others cold as if Mother Nature can't quite make up her mind. We do ask that all children bring coats now for those days that are to cool to be outside without our coats. We hate to make some set out of playing with their friends because they just weren't prepared for the cooler weather. Also, children are rowdy counting down to their vacation days and even know that one more month will bring the old fat dude. Still, we ask that you help remind your children that leaders know how to control their behaviors.
Talking about leadership, this month we are focusing on Beginning with the End in Mind. We are learning to make goals for ourselves and develop a plan to follow through to reach those goals. We sing our Beginning with the End in Mind song each morning. If you wish to have your child to sing it to you, the extra practice will help them prepare to make our morning announcements as they also lead the school in singing.
Our first day off comes on Veteran's Day. All of our students have once again made Thank-You cards for our veterans. These are always welcomed by our veterans and go a long way to teach that leaders also think of others, especially those who sacrifice so much on their behalves.
Our next holiday will be the week of Thanksgiving starting on Wednesday and going through till the following Monday where we will come back to discover the school transformed by eager elves. Till then, it is a good practice to think about all of our blessings before thinking about what more we want in the coming holiday.
We hope that all of our families and our community have a wonderful Thanksgiving and to all our local veterans, we do so appreciate you!
