1/18/2017 Update from Silver Beach

Silver Beach News for 1.18.17

Dear Families,
Last Friday, we had an assembly reviewing Habit 3: Put First Things First, and introducing Habit 4: Think Win-Win.  A summary of all Overview of the 7 Habits.docx .  There is also have a fabulous book called, 7 Habits of Happy Kids, in our library collection. This assembly was produced and led by a team of our 4th grade leaders: Jax Beaupain, Haylie Tull, Madison Nathanson, Braden Jones, Makenna Sheedy, and Addie Carr. These ‘Leaders in Action’ gave up many hours of their lunch, recess, and club time to work with Mr. Gilmore and Ms. Popp. Egan Hill and Tycho Weiche are our lights and video team leaders. I hope to get some video clips from the assembly on the school FaceBook page soon. Ask your child(ren) about what they learned about Think Win-Win from the assembly and story, Mean Jean the Recess Queen.
Have a great week!
Nicole
