Positivity Project:  Connection/Purpose
This strength means that you seek to be part of something greater than yourself.  Having a clear sense of purpose in life gives individuals strength.  It allows them to persevere and find courage in trying circumstances.  On a group level, the sense of connection between people further strengthens their individual resolve and focus, which fortifies the group.

Class Placement Input Letters
Class placement input letters were sent home Thursday, April 11, 2019 in the Thursday folders. We value and welcome your insights regarding your child’s learning needs. We will use this information in collaboration with staff input as we create class placements. Many factors are considered in determining class placement. We have an amazing staff and ask respectfully that you do not indicate teacher names on this form. In order to be considered, this form must be returned to the office no later than Friday, May 17, 2019
