Gratitude to Find Joy! 

An interactive online class with sharing, stories, and music

Date – Friday, January 29, 21

Ages – Kindergarten to Second Grade from 1:00 pm – 1:50 pm 

             Third to Eighth Grade from 2:00 pm – 2:50 pm

We encourage children to say thank you to others often, but what does gratitude really mean?  Gratitude itself is a warm feeling of thankfulness toward the world and towards specific people/things, too.  Did you know numerous studies on practicing gratitude show there can be physical and mental benefits including:

  • Better sleep
  • Higher levels of happiness and feelings of optimism
  • Less stress and an improved ability to cope with stress
  • Increased self esteem
  • Fever physical problems/ailments
  • Improved resilience
  • and more…

Join us for a 50-minute class where we will explore gratitude in a fun and meaningful way.  Our teachers will give your child a chance to share personal stories and thoughts, read books, sing songs, as well as send them off with strategies and ways to continue practicing gratitude in his or her daily life.  There promises to be lots of laugh, smiles, and positive feelings!

Especially with the changes COVID-19 has brought to students’ lives over the past year, opportunities for social and emotional learning are so important for our children!  We hope you will choose to have your child join us for this class so they can connect with teachers and peers on this uplifting topic and build new skills to continue trying at home, too.
