Dear Elementary Parents, 尊敬的小学部家长们:
This week has been a successful second week of school. Students are getting into a routine. Lesson and content are being taught. It is exciting to see how much the students have remembered over the summer.

This week I had a chance to co-teach with Ms. Bannen during Guidance Class. Guidance class is where the students will learn conflict resolution, team building, and character development. At KIA, we use a program called the Peace Scholars curriculum. At the core of the Peace Scholar program are a set of I-Care rules.
这周,我有机会与Ms. Bannen在咨询辅导课上共同授课。在咨询辅导课上学生们学习解决冲突、团队建设和品格发展。在KIA,我们使用一个叫作 “和平学者” 的课程项目。和平学者项目的核心是一套 “我关注” 规则。
In K3-3rd Grade, we focus on the basic rules of:

  1. We listen to each other.
  2. Hands are for helping, not hurting.
  3. We use I Care Language.
  4. We care about each other’s feelings.
  5. We are responsible for what we say and do.
在K3 - 3年级,我们重点集中在以下的基本规则:
1. 我们彼此倾听。
2. 手是用来帮助别人的,不是用来伤害别人的。
3.我们使用 “我关注” 语言模式。
4. 我们关心彼此的感受。
5. 我们对自己的言行负责。
In 4th and 5th Grade, we expand the rules to include the Peace Scholar Rules:
  1. We cooperate for peaceful purposes.
  2. We speak with respect.
  3. We listen with an open mind.
  4. We act with kindness.
  5. We care about each other’s feelings.
  6. We are responsible for what we say and do.

1. 我们为和平目的而合作。
2. 我们以尊重的态度讲话。
3. 我们以开放的心态倾听。
4. 我们行为友善。
5. 我们关心彼此的感受。
6. 我们对自己的言行负责。
Ms. Bannan and I look forward to working with the students this year as we seek to develop positive relationships and a safe, healthy community at KIA. Please take some time to talk to your students at home about these rules and about what they are learning during guidance class time.

Ms. Bannen 和我期待着今年与学生们一同努力在KIA创建积极正面的关系和一个安全健康的社区。请花些时间与您的孩子在家里谈谈这些规则,以及他们在辅导课上学习了什么。
Sincerely, 谨致问候!
