Good afternoon.  From all reports, our students did us proud yesterday at both Gunstock and the Merrill Fay Ice Arena on their day of Winter Carnival fun.  We even had the kindergarteners stop by for a few runs on the Tubing Hill; our students let them cut the line ahead of them so they could get in an extra run or two.  Proud moment for a principal.

This week’s tip from the “Middle Years”  I care about you*  Caring about others can make your child feel good about himself and even help him make new friends.  Inspire compassion with these ideas:  Trade Places-Suggest that he put himself in someone else’s shoes.  Say his friend is disappointed because he didn’t make a sports team.  Your tween could think about how he would feel if he worked hard for something and didn’t get it. Seeing things from his friend’s perspective will help him understand his friend’s feelings and empathize.  Take Action-Encourage him to find a way to support others who are going through a rough time.

Thank you and enjoy the weekend.
