Suggestions for a Successful School Year – Part 3
– Mrs. Telma DaSilva
We are in a strange time, but try to always look for someone you can encourage and uplift – and cheer on your children as they do the same. My son is in 5th grade, and is not a fan of the masks. He was complaining last week about being on morning safety patrol, because he sweats so much with the mask on and gets mosquito bites being outside so early. I was able to share with him that he can be one of the first ones to say Good Morning to a student who may be having a rough morning. He can be one of the first to say Hi to a parent in car line after school as well; maybe that parent had a bad day at home/work, and he can make them smile. He loves to make people laugh so I told him how he can be an encouragement to someone possibly without even knowing it!
