    Today’s Social Skills Lesson

    Today, your child was presented a social skills class coordinated by our counseling team.

    We began with a review of our school wide theme of “GRRR”: Granite Grizzlies are Responsible, Respectful and Ready to learn! The social skills classes each month will provide the skills to “GRRR”!

    • We participated in a mindfulness breathing and relaxing exercise.
    • We also reviewed “If you don’t show it, they won’t know it!”
    • Today’s topics:
      • Perseverance/Grit: Not quitting, being “ok” with working hard.
      • Trying something new: How does that feel? How do we ask for help?
      • When things are easy, how do we respond to others struggling with the same task?

    Please discuss with your child what he/she has learned from this lesson. It can provide a wonderful form of reinforcement of essential interpersonal skills
