August – September
This month we will be learning about the virtue of citizenship and how students can
learn to become better citizens at home, at school and in the community. We will
discuss the virtue and complete fun activities and projects in order that we may learn to
become better citizens.
During the course of this unit, take time to talk with your child about the meaning of
citizenship. Share some of your own personal experiences, past and present, of how
you demonstrated kindness toward someone. Discuss with your child about a time in
your life when you failed to be a good neighbor and citizen and what the outcome was.
This month’s “Castle Connection” activity, which is designed to promote family unity and
parental involvement in the character education process, is for you to assist your child in
a writing exercise about citizenship.
Thank you for teaching your child abouth the virtue of citizenship!
