The Tribes Curriculum for October will focus on the Agreement: “Appreciations – No Put Downs!” In Tribes appreciation means to treat others kindly; to state appreciations for unique qualities, gifts, skills and contributions. “No put-downs” means to avoid negative remarks, name-calling, hurtful gestures and behaviors. Students will be learning how to give compliments to each other, to be aware of how it makes them and others feel and understand that the more appreciations we give the more positive and enjoyable our learning environment becomes. Try it! Give more appreciations and you will start to receive more appreciations!
