Dear Parents,

With Thanksgiving upon us,  I wanted to take a moment to share some thoughts on practicing gratitude.  You can encourage your child to take time to actively embrace an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ by doing some of the following:

  • Thank someone who did something nice for you
  • Practice a random act of kindness
  • Tell the people in your life how much you care about them
  • Celebrate an accomplishment – big or small!
  • Thank someone who did something nice for you
  • Practice a random act of kindness
  • Tell the people in your life how much you care about them
  • Celebrate an accomplishment – big or small!

Practicing gratitude will help to keep your children happy, resilient and healthy. So, over this holiday break, talk to your children about ways to appreciate small moments in their lives.  Help them to see all that you are grateful for– as this will cultivate an “Attitude of Gratitude” in your children.  Show your children how you express gratitude to others in your own life!   I want you to know how grateful we are to all of you for being such a supportive parent community.  I am always thinking of how much more we are able to accomplish in our classrooms and school because of the enduring parental support.  So, for that, I thank you!

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

Kathryn Castonguay, Principal
