Along with the usual wonderful learning opportunities that Lower Schoolers will have this week is the chance to explore another "common courtesy." Last week we examined the benefits to all of using "please" and "thank you" regularly. We will follow that up this week by discussing why opening/holding doors for others is courteous and when someone opens or holds the door for you (at drop off, dismissal, recess, etc.) is a great opportunity to say "thank you!" We will also discuss why it's polite to knock on a closed door before entering. Thank you for supporting this work through follow up conversations at home.
Get ready for next week's theme: table manners!

By the time they graduate, our students are master learners. They know how to manage their time, build meaningful relationships with adults, and advocate for themselves. They also know what it means to make a positive impact in the world. Read about our alumni.
