Welcome to fall y’all! Many of you are aware that here at St. Mary’s we have Student of the Month, where teachers from each grade choose one student that is an example of the positive characteristic for that assigned month.  November happens to be empathy, which will also my chosen topic for the month!

4-8th grades- I am excited to team up with the teachers and offer the students credit for a lesson exercise that they will be doing in considering empathy and ‘walking in someone else’s shoes’.  Ask them how they empathized with a shoe;)

k-3rd grades- Also focusing on the word empathy, we will be reading ‘The Invisible Boy’ by Trudy Ludewig and complete an exercise in which students brainstorm a time they felt ‘invisible’ and talk about ways that our classmates and friends could have helped, and can help in the future to be more inclusive and considerate.

Any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email:
