  • A message from our Principal, Mr. Jorge Arredondo

    Celebrate Thanksgiving by encouraging gratitute in children. As November gets under way, many thoughts come to mind. Cooler temperatures. Turkey dinners. School breaks, Vacation plans. It can be all too easy to get caught up in the coming holiday season. But as we approach Thanksgiving, we should remember to slow down and take time to be grateful - and we should encourage our children to do the same. Being grateful can make a difference in our students' lives. According to research conducted by California State University, grateful teens are more likely to be happy, less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, and less likely to suffer from behavioral problems at school. Grateful students also are less likely to cheat on exams or skip school. When we teach our students to be more grateful, we're ultimately helping them become more caring and compassionate adults. Here are a few ways that you can help develop feelins of gratitude in your children. 1. Ask them to keep a daily gratitude journal. Have them list the things for which they are grateful and elaborate on why they feel that way. 2. Spend time with them and talk about the positive things in their lives. 3. Teach them to write Thank you notes for people who have helped them. 4. Explain how expressing gratitude to friends can build stronger relationships. Encourage students who have reached a goal or milestone to express their gratitude to those who encouraged them and supported them. I am grateful to all of you in our school community. I hope you have a great November and a Happy Thanksgiving. Jorge Arredondo.
