The focus of our Character Education this year is that: St. Michael School is 'paws-i-tively' wild about good choices!
HOW IT WORKS:
It is important to impress upon your child the value of being a good friend and understand how to work together with a positive attitude and respect. I have found that when children feel important and valued by another child his/her age, they do better in school and are excited to begin each day. Support our education of PAWS and ask you child each day what they did to show respect and work together and also what was offered to him/her in return. Teachers will wear their symbolic UMatter shirts on Mondays. Every day teachers and staff will be on the lookout for PAWS choices.
May we all follow the footprints of Jesus on our journey of life...
