November’s character trait is GRATITUDE.

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

William Arthur Ward

Ms. Vanessa and the grade 3s sang and signed the words of “You’re Welcome” for students to understand the meaning of gratitude. Great job grade 3s!

 

GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Prestige School has upgraded its homework tool from Moodle to Google Classroom this year. Google Classroom is more user friendly and allows teachers to upload supplement resources, such as videos or links for students. It also allows students and teachers to communicate. Teachers will be using Google Classroom to post homework, spelling words, and important announcements. Handouts will be posted in case students lose their sheet or are absent. Teachers will still be providing key handouts during class. Please make sure that you have logged into your child’s account and check it everyday. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

HALLOWEEN

Wednesday, October 31st is Halloween and pizza lunch! Your child is welcomed to come to school dressed in a costume or in casual clothes. Students will be having regular Wednesday classes from periods 1 to 5. Homeroom classes will be having a Halloween party during periods 6 and 7. Homeroom teachers will advise students what they can contribute for these parties.
