Our Friendzy Theme for September has been "We Need Each Other". We've been teaching our students the importance of making connections in our lives, building each other up, using our words to boost someone, and just being kind. It's strange, though, because it seems as if the more we talk about it, the worse our kids are at doing it.
Over the past two weeks, I have seen over 25 students in my office for unkind behaviors and words. It makes my heart hurt. Each time I talk to our students, they seem to "get it". They say the right things, they apologize, they vow to do better, and then the next day, they're back in my office for a similar situation.
Treating each other with kindness is a non-negotiable at St. Patrick School, and meanness won't be tolerated. We are going to keep working on instilling this kindness in our students, and we hope you will support this mission at home, too!
