Pemberton Learning Community: Pursuing Excellence One Child at a Time
This month at Emmons School, we are working on the character trait of Kindness. Kindness is doing positive acts for others and speaking to everyone we come in contact with respectfully. Kindness is also one of our 5 core values. Each month, our students have one character education trait that they are supposed to work on. Last month, we worked on Service. Below are some helpful hints on what you can teach your child at home about Kindness. In addition, this month we acknowledge Random Acts of Kindness Week on February 15-February 19. There will be a school spirit week with special dress days and virtual activities as described below. Each day will also feature an act of kindness to do that day!
In honor of Black History Month during the month of February, Emmons students will have the opportunity to participate in a poster contest to celebrate Black History Month! Create a poster displaying the accomplishments of a famous black American or a poster that illustrates the core values of kindness and respect by acknowledging equality and respect for each other’s differences. Two students per grade will be selected as the winners. Each winner will be given an award. Winning posters will be displayed around the school as well as pictures of the posters will be posted on the school Dojo page. Be creative and have fun! The event is sponsored by the members of the Pemberton Township Education Association.
