    GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS: 

    Next week is kindness/fill a bucket week so let us all model the characteristic of respect and encourage appreciation for everyone around us.  It is a great idea for all adults to spend some time reflecting on our contributions to a positive society and environment for all of us, particularly the kids.  What characteristics and activities are in place promoting a kind and respectful sense of being?  What do we do negatively that can be done away with to improve our overall quality of life for ourselves and others?  In conjunction with kindness week, students, staff, and families are encouraged to do nice things for others, demonstrate respect and common courtesies, and write out notes of appreciation to fill the buckets of others that will be on display.  And in the spirit of kindness, a visual that clearly defines what is and is not bullying is attached for your information.

    Here is to a great weekend and week ahead and, as always, thank you for your support of Liberty!
