The JK’s have been focusing on self-reliance in the classroom as they lead up to hosting the assembly at the end of this month. (Reliability is this month’s character education trait.) The children are doing a great job of taking care of the things they are responsible for at school. Their jobs include putting their shoes and boots away neatly, packing their ‘mitt kit’, storing their snack bags, putting toys away in their proper bins, recycling and getting their snow pants and jackets on as independently as possible. As Sara A likes to say, ‘They flip and we zip!’
