CHARACTER VALUE TIP FOR APRIL: SELF DISCIPLINE
SELF DISCIPLINEsmiley

The definition of self discipline is as follows: 

Self discipline is the disciplined training of ones self with some kind of self improvement in mind. This is a trait used by athletes, artists and musicians and should be used by students in the same way. There is also an important underlying theme of self control. For personal happiness and social harmony we need to act and speak appropriately.

Here are some tips for working towards self discipline:
  1. Keep your personal space neat and organized.
  2. Throw away things that you really have NO use for.
  3. Practice self control when you get really angry.
  4. Do your chores and your homework WITHOUT being asked.
  5. Keep your promises to your family and to yourself!
  6. Express your feelings with appropriate words and or actions

HOW TO SET GOALS

 

1. Define the goal.*

2. Outline the steps needed to achieve it.

3. Consider possible blocks and ways of dealing with them.

4. Set deadlines.

*Not every wish can be a goal. For instance, you may wish you could live and stay young forever, but since there's nothing you can do to make that happen, it could never be considered a goal.

In order for something to be a goal, you must have self discipline! Remember these key points!

 It has to be important to you, personally.

 It has to be within your power to make it happen through your own actions.

 It has to be something you have a reasonable chance of achieving.

 It must be clearly defined and have a specific plan of action.

Welcome Back!
Welcome Back Everyone!
I cannot believe we are starting yet another school year, time flies so fast!
My intentions are not only to teach your children about character education, but to help them live it.
With the help of Mr. Berman, the teachers and you- the community of School 3, I hope we all create a safe environment for our kids to learn and grow, not only as students, but as people.
I am here to help in anyway I can. I want to encourage parents/guardians to please reach out to me if there are any significant changes at home.
It is imperative for your child's teacher and I to be aware in case if his/her behavior changes in school.

As change and transition is hard for anyone, it can be an anxiety inducing time for children and parents alike.

Please view the following links to help you and your children make a great transition back into our new school year!
