Happy World Kindness Day Redwood Families!
It is in fact World Kindness Day! I will weave that into my narrative in a bit, but I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge those that celebrated Diwali. May this Diwali bring you an abundance of prosperity, good fortune, and moments of joy. May your path be lit by the glow of success and happiness! Hopefully the beautiful weather was just a boon to the day! You may have noted once again that I am unable to navigate away from the first paragraph without providing a brief weather report.
In other news, it is World Kindness Day, as previously mentioned. The overarching theme is making kindness a fundamental part of our interactions, decisions and actions. It is a day to reflect upon the aforementioned and really consider how you bring kindness into the world. I personally often reflect on "how" I present kindness, not only to my own family and friends, but to the students, staff and community as a whole. Obviously, I am human, and all of the above, especially my family, have experienced moments where I lacked kindness (to put it mildly) yet the significance of this simple concept is always present in my mind. This would be the perfect opportunity to segue into the acceptance of invitations also being an act of kindness. Say to a School Site Council meeting just as an offhanded example? November 30th at 3:30pm could be an opportunity to extend kindness to another. The RMS library would be an excellent locale to embrace said kindness if you feel so inclined. Sorry, I couldn't help myself, but principals need kindness too!
On an educationally related note, students attended their second Digital Tat 2
assembly today, wherein they were able to delve a little deeper into how to best navigate our digital world. I encourage you to ask questions about it. Feel free to share any of your child's reflections with me. Although I have highlighted math classes a bit lately, I couldn't resist including the picture of Ms. Sprenger in her In N Out
regalia. Math students were using the menu items to extrapolate equations to determine the cost of special orders. Keep that in mind if you're ordering a 100 X 100 burger! I've also included signage from the Book Clubs that are part of the ELA classes curriculum pilot. Lastly, Club 47 made some adorable turkeys and photos of their creations are a must!
Have a great week! Be kind!
