With our students returning to school this week, a sizable chunk of my time has suddenly focused on work again. This year, I am humbled to be assigned to also lead our After School Enrichment Program. Like any first timer, I am very excited and yet a little bit nervous, too.
To start the school year right, our After School Enrichment Program has decided to focus on reacquainting our children with grace and courtesy lessons this month. This will lay the foundation for a peaceful and engaging classroom environment that is very important for our school success. Lessons include respect for oneself, others, and environment. Concepts on friendliness, sportsmanship, and conflict resolutions are also incorporated. While I was a little bit anxious how our first week would turn out, thankfully, everything went well. It was a blast! Our children went home learning a lot from the program, while enjoying our wow-that-is-so-cool activities.
Thanks for reading.
