We have so much to be thankful for! At CSM the wellbeing of our students is incorporated throughout the curriculum for all grades, and we believe it is the foundation for intellectual, physical, and social and emotional growth.
During the month of October, our Lower School classes collaborated in the creation of a Gratitude Tree where they were able to reflect on what they are most grateful for. It was a beautiful activity that brought the children together, even though they are still socially distanced. Now, when passing the tree in the corridor, we are all reminded to be grateful for the good in our lives.
To celebrate the revealing of the tree, the Kindergarten and Nursery classes presented an assembly on gratitude. They had discussions, read stories and sang songs to learn more about this positive emotion. They all agreed that we should find time to notice and appreciate the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family and nature. Gratitude helps students see the good even in bad situations.
Well done everybody!
