August / September 2020 “SELF-CONTROL” Student-Leaders
During August & September, Main Street School & Kindergarten Center hyper-focused on "Self-Control."
Teachers reinforced in the classroom w/ literary stories & discussions highlighting characters & theme related to Self-Control & the students’ personal lives. Teachers & staff regularly praised this trait when it was observed in front of peers.
We are strategic w/ the praise as well. We praise the character & effort/process w/ more value than the end result. i.e. We do not praise a student by saying, "You are smart" or “I am proud of you for getting an A." We say, "I was impressed w/ your work ethic & grit even when the math problem got difficult; you didn't give up" or "I noticed you allowing a peer to join your game & made them feel accepted."
Our "mantra" @ Main Street School & Kindergarten Center is "BE NICE; WORK HARD."
We are very proud to announce the August / September 2020 Main Street Self-Control Students:
