2015 Teacher of the Year
South View Elementary
An important life skill is having a positive attitude. It is important for students to have a positive attitude in everything they do. According to "Building a Champion Character" by Susan Rose, we can help ensure our children have a positive attitude and stay emotionally healthy by being aware of the four A's:
Attention: Everyone needs attention! As a parent you can help your children feel positive about themselves by being attentive and listening to them.
Appreciation: We can help our children respect themselves and value their own uniqueness by praising them.
Acceptance: By recognizing our children's talents and challenges, we show them acceptance. We can help them grow and learn by using their mistakes as an opportunity to learn.
Affection: Everyone needs to feel loved and cherished. A kind word or a warm hug can make a big difference in your child's day!
Help promote a positive attitude in your child by teaching him or her the four A's!
If you think your child will benefit from participating in a support group such as: Study Skills, Family Changes, Anger Management, Variety Pack, Grief, Making Good Choices, or Building Positive Self Esteem, please contact your child’s teacher
