Today is August 21st!... The first day of school!!
Positive Actions returns to WSIS and begins today on a journey together to discover that starting with positive thoughts, we can choose positive actions, and help us to gain positive feelings! Take a look at our logo:
And, to welcome you all, here is a message from Mrs. Hott to tell you more about this year's program about "paws"itive actions at home, school, and in our community!
Did you see the beautiful stream of water behind Mrs. Hott? Berkeley Springs is a unique community to live and grow up. And, just like that stream in the video is full of many drops of water, our school is also filled with unique and wonderfully made children. When we add them all together, and mix in some positive acts of kindness, we've made a beautiful pool of water.
Today, we will begin looking at my favorite value word: Kindness.
Check out this cool picture:
(Teacher, please read to class:)
Every act of Kindness, no matter how small, creates a ripple out and reaches our community around us. Whether we are home, at school, or somewhere in our community, being kind is a Positive Action that helps us, and others, feel good.
What is Kindness?
Think of an act of kindness YOU did this summer. Got one? Raise your hand and share this with your class.
Now, for Positive Actions today, our students at Warm Springs Intermediate School are going to begin to make our school a "Community of Cougars that Care!" With just one act of kindness...it begins with YOU!
What kind thing can you do today?
Cougars that are KIND can change the world!
