The Word of the Month for August was not a word, but rather three very important character traits which we referred to as “The Big 3”.
Our students learned that The Big 3 are:
- Treating others right
- Making smart decisions
- Maximizing your potential
Students learned the importance of these Big 3 throughout the month during morning announcements and in class.
We use the Core Essentials character curriculum at McGinnis Woods to help us frame the importance of good character in our world each and every day.
Demonstrating Good Character is Rewarded
Throughout the year, teachers will identify students who demonstrate our character focus of the month. These special students are recognized and rewarded with special Chick -fil-A coupons during our morning announcements.
Additionally, an exceptional student who has worked hard to master these character traits and be a role model in the classroom will be chosen as the Student of the Month and will be treated to a special lunch at Cheeseburger Bobby’s.
Our first group of Citizens of the Month enjoyed their celebratory lunch today, along with our Teacher of the Month, Ms. Abby Matthews, PreK4A Allstars teacher.
Congratulations to Tal, Shubhda, Meredith, Rithvi, Mayson, Miraya, Sarah, Sam and Pearson for their efforts while at school!
