With the start of the new month comes a new monthly PBIS focus. This month, we are learning about confidence. Confidence is being sure of yourself and your abilities. People who are confident know they can count on themselves and their skills, use positive self-talk, and aren’t afraid to be who they are. For the month of May we will be doing mini lessons on how to build self-confidence. We encourage our families to also participate in discussions with their students about confidence. When students feel good about themselves they have the confidence to try new things, are more likely to try their best and feel proud of what they accomplish.
