June Virtue - Joyfulness


Principal's June Message:

Our virtue for the month of June is: Joyfulness.  Students will be taught that joyfulness is being filled with happiness.  It is a peaceful sense of well-being.  Joy is inside us all.  It comes from an appreciation for the gifts each day brings.  Joy comes when we are doing what we know is right, and when we laugh and see the humour in things.  Joy is the inner sense that can carry us through the hard times even when we are feeling very sad.  

 You can further support these teachings at home by reinforcing the following signs of success in showing perseverance:

  • I look inside for happiness
  • I enjoy whatever I am doing
  • I appreciate the gifts in life and in myself
  • I find creative ways to enjoy my time 

Until next time,

Mrs. Tracy Wagner
