During the month of February, we continue to teach your child strategies to help them make and keep friends. We are encouraging the students to show cooperative, caring and considerate behaviours and to understand that honesty, trust and loyalty are important in developing positive relationships with new people. In reality children learn these behaviours from birth and you play a very important role in the social development of your children. I encourage you to talk about making and keeping friends with your child and to always model the behaviours that you expect them to show. We say that Fabulous Friendships Begin in February.
