Everyone Matters

It is great to be back at school after Spring Break. The warmer weather feels wonderful. Everyone came back refreshed and ready to get back at it!

We had a great start this week. One of the things we did the first day back was talk about our goals for the rest of the school year. We have less than eight weeks until we are fourth graders! There's a lot to accomplish between now and then.

We will be talking more about goals in the weeks ahead.

To get us started on our last eight weeks we took a moment to think about how Everyone Matters. This great idea is from Miss Bosch, our school Social Worker. Mrs. Bosch and some Pinewood students made a great video to explain what Everyone Matters is all about. Check it out below!

The first day back after Spring Break as we look ahead to a busy eight weeks is a perfect time to stop and think about what makes each of special. We brainstormed some ideas about what is unique about each of us. Then we traced our hand and cut them out.

We had a chance to share about what words we chose and why we chose them. Here are a few examples of what we think about ourselves.

Check out the video below for some more examples. And be sure to check out our school tree full of these great "I Am" statements the next time you stop by!

We all have things that we do well or that are special about us. We'd love to hear what is special about all who visit here. Please let us know what is unique about you in the comment section below.
