After looking at teacher responses and student responses to the end of year survey, I have chosen "Always be Humble and Kind" as this year's theme. Through the "Always be Humble and Kind" theme we will discuss: kindness, humility, respect, thankfulness, honesty, courage, friendship, responsibility, perseverance and self-control among other topics. These topics will also be highlighted through the Bear Den program. As students demonstrate these behaviors not only can they earn Bear Den points but their names and pictures will be on WBME and on the bulletin board in the guidance classroom.
Crayons to Careers will take place on October 14th. Students will also participate in career inventories, and career jeopardy to increase their awareness of career opportunities. 5th grade will do a career research paper, power point and oral presentation in order to meet the State guidelines.
Students will also have an opportunity to look at learning styles, work on study skills, homework tips, decision making and test taking strategies.
