Welcome back families and schools to the 2020-21 school year!
Our theme this year is EMPATHY.
In November we are discussing :
BIG by Coleen Paratore.
The focus of this book is to learn about becoming a BIG person. Big is not defined as large or tall, but a person who thinks BIG about the world and their place in it. The author defines BIG as being bright and imaginative, healthy, kind and helpful, friendly and valuable members of society.
During our discussion we talk about being BIG as a journey made up of small things we say and do every day. The reward for being BIG is not tangible, but something felt inside of each of us. It is a feeling of goodness that comes from thinking and acting generously. We discuss looking within ourselves to see how we can tap into personal power to become a valuable member for family, school, neighborhood, community, country and world.
