Welcome to CARE Class 2020! This year our Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum will be taken up by class teachers throughout each month. Students will engage with each monthly theme and as an added bonus we’d like families to participate as well! Please check out our new webpage, WaldorfMoraine.org/SEL (located under the “Our Curriculum” tab) where you will find weekly guided mindfulness practices, project descriptions, CARE Corner updates, and other helpful resources.

Our theme this month is Gratitude.

In such tumultuous times, cultivating gratitude can ease stress, promote positivity, and bring peace to weary minds and bodies. We’d like to invite you to join our wave of gratitude by sharing something you are grateful for. All contributions will be added to our gratitude tree located in the entrance hall of our school, so that students and faculty can experience its growth each day! I will share pictures with the community so that you too can witness the beauty of a grateful community.

Please share your gratitudes with me directly via email to breed@waldorfmoraine.org by November 30, 2020.

I am happy to begin by sharing my gratitude first: I am grateful for this amazing community of loving, innovative, and kind individuals.

Wishing you well,

Branigan Reed
First Grade Class Teacher, SEL Specialist
