OCTOBER - Cooperation
"It is through cooperation, rather than conflict, that
your greatest successes will be derived."
"No matter what accomplishments you make,
somebody helped you."
Our character education theme for the month of October is COOPERATION. It is important that children learn to work together for the common goal. We need to model cooperation for our children so they will learn from example. We will be encouraging cooperation throughout the month (and always) through various activities and discussions. Remind your children how important it is to always work well with others. Parents can discuss doing chores in a cooperative manner, families can work together in planning and preparing a meal, or families can play a game which takes cooperation and teamwork. The possibilities are endless! Please help your children understand cooperation by modeling, having discussions, and stressing the importance of all appropriate ethical conduct (such as cooperation).
