Cool Tools & Character Words

"If a child doesn't know how to read, we teach.

If a child doesn't know how to swim, we teach.

If a child doesn't know how to multiply, we teach.

If a child doesn't know how to drive, we teach.

If a child doesn't know how to behave,
we... punish?"

"Si un niño/a  no sabe leer, le enseñamos.

"Si un niño/a  no sabe nadar, le enseñamos.

"Si un niño/a  no sabe multiplicar, le enseñamos.

"Si un niño/a  no sabe motivarse, le enseñamos.

"Si un niño/a  no sabe comportarse,
nosotros...le castigamos?" 

Here at Sugar Creek we believe that we need to teach children about positive behavior just like we teach them how to read, write, add and subtract.  Therefore, throughout the year we have different "cool tools," short lessons taught in every classroom, to help children learn appropriate social skills.  Throughout the year we spend time focusing on each of our four school expectations and also on each part of the school building.  Check back throughout the year to find out about our current "cool tool" focus.
