Celebration of Tradition
Posted January 1, 2019
Our gratitude to the students and families who shared their traditions with us, as this helped us to further appreciate and celebrate all of the beautiful ways in which we are different, right here at our school. When we take opportunities to learn more about one another, we are able to have more empathy. View the slideshow here.
Many thanks to Mrs. Mackie!
Blueberry Hill School's Monthly Theme
Posted January 1, 2019
January’s Social Emotional monthly theme is Emotion Management. Students will learn to identify and name strong feelings as they occur, including the signals their bodies are giving them, to better be able to interrupt escalating emotions. Calming strategies will be discussed and practiced, such as taking deep breaths, counting to ten, and using positive self-talk.
Please check your teacher's January Newsletter to see how this month's theme will be implemented in the classroom.
Kindness Rocks at Blueberry Hill
Posted December 21, 2018
Please bring in medium sized rocks (ones that could be written or painted on, no bigger than the palm of your hand) so your child can write kind phrases, kind words or kind pictures on them. These will be placed throughout the school. Our goal is to make other kids feel welcome and to make people feel better and spread happiness! Rocks will be collected in the main office.
Always remember, Kindness Counts!
Please bring them in beginning January 2, 2019.
