It's our last night of reading for this year's One School, One Book

What did your family think about Champ?  Leave a comment here or on the OSOB blog.  Does your family have a suggestion for our next OSOB?  Tell us!  



Helping children to foster a "don't give up" attitude can be a challenge - especially if the set-back or situation feels overwhelming to them.  Developing grit and maintaining a growth mindset is an important asset for children to develop into adults who stick with it and persevere.  

I cam across this article in last month's Better Homes and Gardens column entitled "the good kid project."  Check it out.

Family Traditions Wall

Thank you for your awesome support of our family wall that has been on display for September and October!  After such a wonderful response for the family wall, I invite you to participate in our next project: Family Traditions.  

We all have traditions. Supporting our students in becoming global citizens means helping them have an open mind and a willingness to learn about and respect different cultures, traditions, backgrounds and beliefs. 

If you would like your family to be included in our Family Traditions Wall, please return the attached sheet so we may put it on display.  

Siblings may return one sheet for their family or a separate sheet for each child.

You may return the sheet to the main office  or email it to gpalmer@hilton.k12.ny.us.
