In the month of October, Emmons School will be working on the character trait of Respect. This month we will be celebrating Week of Respect, October 4th -8th, with a spirit week and daily activities, including a virtual “Bully No More” assembly. It is important to teach students to respect themselves and others. Below are some helpful hints on what you can teach your child at home about being Respectful.

Emmons School will be participating in daily activities to acknowledge School Violence Awareness Week. These activities are focused on Social Emotional Learning (SEL), which is the concept of how individuals understand and manage their emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, and establish and maintain positive relationships with others. There are both activities for in school (can be done in person for hybrid classes or remotely for full remote classes) as well as activities for at home.
At Home: Spend Quality Time Family – Kids are naturally spending extra time with family. Provide them with home connection ideas that build a strong family foundation. Suggest a family game night, eating meals together at the table, having daily check-in chats to talk about how things are going, and so on.
