    Courage is the character education theme for April

    COURAGE


    The character education theme for April is Courage.  This month the students at Robert Frost will be learning about what it means to show courage.  Courage is "overcoming fear so I can do what is right."  Courage begins by knowing what is good, true, and right.  This give you confidence that you are heading in the right direction.  Another way to build courage is to think what you should do in certain situations.  For example, what should you do if you see smoke coming from a neighbor's house?  What should you do if a stranger tells you to get in their car?  What should you do if you see a classmate being teased or bullied?

    Practicing scenarios like these or thinking ahead will help you overcome fear and make better choices when you face strange, difficult, or frightening situations.  You never know how your boldness and bravery will inspire others to stand up for what is true, right, and just.  

    This month the students at Robert Frost will be learning about displaying courage.  A courageous person is helpful to themselves or others and makes an effort to do the right thing. Being courageous also includes standing up when it may not be the popular thing to do. 

     * Over the next month please work with your children to help them to understand how to display courage to themselves and others.  Read stories or watch movies with them that have a message about courage and discuss this with your children.  In addition, try to display acts of courage. 

     * If we work together to help your child achieve their goals then all of their dreams will seem within reach!!!!
