Principal's Weekly Memo December 17 - 21


Montemalaga Elementary

Weekly Memo

December 17-December 21, 2018


This is the last Weekly Memo for the 2018 school year.  Winter Break begins with a Minimum Day on Friday, December 21 –January 6, 2019.  School resumes on Monday, January 7. 

The holidays are such a very special time of year.  Please take time to relax and enjoy outings, conversations, good food and activities with family and friends.  Best wishes for a wonderful two weeks. 


Character Trait:  Determination and Enthusiasm

            When we are enthusiastic people around us also feel excited and want to share our enthusiasm.  When we act uninterested, people do not really want to be around us.  This week be enthusiastic and watch how excited peers can be. 


Social/Emotional Learning:

            We all want to have friends here at school.  But people can have similar or different feelings about the same situation.  For example, I might feel scared to climb up high, and my friend might feel excited.  Learning to respect other people’s feelings can help us make and keep friends.  This week, notice other people’s feelings and whether they’re the same or different from yours.
