March Virtue - Gentleness 

Principal's March Message:

Our virtue for the month of March is: Gentleness.  Students will be taught that you are showing gentleness when you act and speak in a kind, considerate way.  It is using self-control, in order not to hurt or offend anyone.  You can be gentle with people and animals in the way you touch them and the way you speak to them.  You handle things carefully so they will not break or be hurt.  When you think gentle thoughts, it makes the world a safer, gentler place.  You can further support these teachings at home by reinforcing the following signs of success in showing gentleness:

  • I make it safe for people and animals to be around me.
  • I speak with a soft voice.
  • I express my feelings peacefully.
  • I take time out when I don’t feel calm. 

Until next time,

Mrs. Tracy Wagner
