The focus of each grade level’s Healthy Lifestyles Classes for the month of November are below:

2nd - Showing Compassion (book “Cara’s Kindness”, ask your child about their friendship cake) & Learning to calm when we experience a strong feeling (look for the “Angry Kitty” packet to come home, book “Don’t Blow Your Top”)
3rd - Showing Compassion (book “All are Welcome”) & Working through uncomfortable feelings (book “Ruby Finds a Worry”, look for the butterfly in hand to come home)
4th - Working through strong feelings (book “The Bad Seed”, look for a seed to come home) & Working through anxious feelings (book “Scaredy Squirrel”)
5th - Working through anxious feelings (book “The Good Egg”) & Problem-Solving (ask your child to tell you the problem-solving steps)
We are really trying to promote positive behavior at JRES and beyond. Please ask your child to share with you how they may earn Class Dojo points, and all the options for redeeming those points at school. We are hopeful that reinforcing positive behaviors at school through this system will really help all students.
Thank you for sharing your kids with us!
