For the months of November and December, we here at Alisal will be focusing on the Character Trait of compassion. Simply put, compassion means doing things to be kind to others. Last year, as part of our Character Education program, Mrs. Brooks and I shared a video about paying it forward with the students. I have linked it here for you to enjoy with them at home as it was VERY popular with kids and grown ups alike.
This year, some of our upper grade students are going to work together to create a video of their own that we can use to talk with the students about compassion. Please reinforce what we are doing here on campus by talking with your own kids about compassion and what it looks like in different situations. This is a great time of year to remember to be kind to others and thankful for what we have.
DARE Graduation will take place on 12/10 at 6:30 in the Alisal MP. Hope to see all 5th Grade parents there!
Please remember that 11/17-11/19 are minimum days. All students in grades 1-5 will attend school from 8:15-12:30 on these days. (Note there is NO late start Wednesday next week.) All TK and K students will attend school from 8:15-11:35 on these days.
In addition, Thanksgiving Break runs from 11/20-11/29, with students off on the 20th for parent/teacher conferences and students returning to school on 11/30.
As a reward for the amazing totals of books purchased at the Fall Book Fair, Alisal has earned a spirit day and lunch time sock hop event.
On Friday, December 4th, all students (and teachers!!) are encouraged to wear their cozy jammies to school and join in a fun sock hop in the MP during their lunch recess time.
Just one more way that Alisal is awesome and amazing…check out the video of two of our fifth grade boys as they welcome cars every Monday morning. There's no better way to start your day!
