Building Character

CARING: Be kind • Be compassionate and show you care • Express gratitude • Forgive others • Help people in need

During the months of December, we will be teaching the pillar of Caring. This is a natural time of year to focus on the quality of caring for others and the spirit of giving from one’s heart. Despite the fact that it is a short month of school, we hope that parents will continue to support and emphasize the qualities of caring with their children over the holiday season and vacation.

There are two main ideas that pertain to the pillar of Caring. The first is concern for others. This means that a caring person would show compassion and empathy, be kind, loving and considerate in their actions, be grateful for the things that other people do for them, forgive others for their shortcomings and mistakes, be sensitive to the feelings of others, and are not mean or cruel to others. The second idea is that of charity. This means that a caring person is giving to others of their time, money, support and comfort to help make someone else’s life more comfortable or better and that they would do this without thinking of what or how they will be rewarded for their deeds in return.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” - AESOP

Cultural Awareness

During the month of December, it is awareness month for Season Affective Disorder. What is it you might ask?

Website resource: National Institute of Mental Health

There is Spanish translation of the website by clicking “en Espanol” on the right-hand side below the PDF flyer.

Many people go through short periods when they feel sad or unlike their usual selves. Sometimes, these mood changes begin and end when the seasons change. Many people feel "down" or have the "winter blues" when the days get shorter in the fall and winter and feel better in the spring when longer daylight hours return.

Sometimes, these mood changes are more serious and can affect how a person feels, thinks, and behaves. If you have noticed significant changes in your mood and behavior when the seasons change, you may be experiencing seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

In most cases, SAD symptoms start in the late fall or early winter and go away during the spring and summer, known as winter-pattern SAD or winter depression. Other people experience depressive symptoms during the spring and summer months, known as summer-pattern SAD or summer depression. Summer-pattern SAD is less common.
