Earth Day 2016 is this Friday, April 22nd.
Recycle. Carpool. Clean up the neighborhood. Wear your seat belt while riding in the car. Follow the rules of the household.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be discussing respect in society and in the world with our students. Whether it’s including a friend (like we will read about in our Narsha the snake book in our Tigers classes) or respecting other countries and cultures (like we’ll read about in our Leadership classes this week), encourage them to participate and get involved in some act of respect towards their society and the planet.
Any ATA student that takes an active role in making the world more respectful should bring in a documented case (a written note from a family member, friend, or teacher is fine) and can earn a silver star for their bag tag and be highlighted at the end of class!
Here are a few talking points to help you a parent to reinforce the lessons of respect taught at ATA Martial Arts:
-Respect is taught by setting an example of being respectful
-The best leader is one who not only knows respect, but also teaches others by being a role model
-To teach a child to greet, the parents must be the first to set the example
I’ve noticed that we had over 110 check ins last week on Facebook through our Sweat Angels initiative. Thanks for contributing. Let’s keep it up!
Remember that April 30th we will be hosting our ATA Day Outside at Pocopson Elementary school. We hope to see you there.
Also, moms can train in any beginner class for FREE in May as a special thank you for your support and encouragement.
