Supportive relationships are the heart of a community and the students this and last week have been reflecting upon what makes a healthy friendship. Along with academic achievement, we have been working on having a sense of community that develops qualities essential to good character and citizenship, such as fairness, concern for others, and personal responsibility. Students are seeing value in creating overall healthy relationships that will create a happy and comfortable learning environment. Our lesson today consisted of reflecting on the activity from last week and looking at what qualities we were looking for in a friend and how we can set goals. The lesson also went over how we are all anchors for one another and working hard individually, in pairs or as a group strengthens who we are as a class.
