NEWS FLASH ** NEWS FLASH ** NEWS FLASH
WOW! Mrs. Hott met some WSIS students celebrating their favorite books yesterday! Look how PAWsome! Can YOU name a book from these creative costumes?!:

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, April 11th! As we continue to improve our positive thoughts, actions and feelings, today we will take a look at raising student assets and a super important positive action word(s):

COMPASSION AND EMPATHY

Tell your teacher, again, what you think the word "COMPASSION" means. 
"feeling concern for the suffering or misfortune of others"

You feel concern for others because you care.  Showing that you care about others and school is a reflection of YOUR character. The ability to "understand and share the feelings of another person" is EMPATHY.  

COMPASSION.  What does "COMPASSION look like?  Can you think of a time when compassion is important?   Watch this video:


Let's take a look at this video.  Which character showed compassion for another?
Who did that person show compassion for?
Why did that person need some compassion?
What did he do to let them know that he was concerned for their misfortune?
Showing compassion for someone who needs help is a Positive Action.  
Think of a time when you helped another person.  What did you do? Helping someone in need is a way to show compassion.  For Positive Actions today, show compassion to --
-- a friend a school that you know,
-- someone at school that you don't know very well,
-- a family member who you can help, and
-- an adult in your neighborhood/community.
Tomorrow, tell your teacher how you showed compassion.
And remember, it is also important to know that here at Warm Springs Intermediate School, we are all part of a "cougar community" where positive actions start with...


YOU!

Cougars that show COMPASSION 
can change the world!
