  • Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

    4 Think Win-Win is the habit of mutual respect.  When we think Win-Win, we make sure everyone leaves the situation feeling like a winner. For example, if we think Win-Win with school assignments, we make sure our work is completed.  It's a win for the student because they are staying on task and it's a win for the teacher, because they know the student is putting forth their best efforts.  This situation is a win for the parents too, because they know they are producing the future leaders of tomorrow and all parents want successful, hard working students.  So, this month, think about some different ways that you can create some WIN-WIN situations.

  • Habit 5 Habit 5 — Seek First to Understand and Then to be Understood

    Seek First to Understand and Then to be Understood means that it is better to listen first and then talk second.  Listening is a skill and we must teach children how to listen.  Have children practice listening without interrupting.  They can also practice listening with their eyes, ears, and heart.  Simply put, we have two ears and one mouth, so we can spend more time listening with the intent to understand.  Activities to do at home: Often times body language can be even more important than words. Play a game with your kids, where you both try to guess the others emotion (happy, sad, angry, bored, frustrated) without using any words, only body language.  Then discuss how some body language may make you feel.  This is a good way to spark some conversation with your children about the habits and how we should always seek first to understand and then to be understood.

From the Principal

  • Welcome from the Principal

    Posted by Donna Myles at 11/29/2016 9:45:00 PM
    I am wishing all of our Jackson Families a very happy holiday break.  The older my children get, the more I really begin to cherish those small special moments that we have together.  Dr. Covey tells us that the most important habit is Habit #7 - Sharpen the Saw.  This habit is about taking care of the  mind, body, heart, and soul.  Spending time with our families and cherishing those moments helps us feel better emotionally.  This gives us balance and it creates a deep connection with our children that they will always have.  So over the two week break, take some time to sharpen the saw.  Here are some ideas to try: 
    1. Make some family ornaments to display around the house (pinterest has awesome ideas)
    2. Have a hot coco and pajama day with parents and kids.  
    3. Have a family game day.  Children of all ages love monopoly, life, chutes and ladders, checkers, and go fish. 
    4. Have circle time and talk about all of the things you are thankful for.  When children see you are showing gratitude, they will internalize it and practice it.  
    5. Do something for someone else - Go caroling in your neighborhood or volunteer at our local United Way.  
     
    These are just a few ways to sharpen your saw as a family.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
