DEAR PARENTS, FAMILIES, AND FRIENDS IN THE COMMUNITY,

Our character education value for March is “forgiveness” and that means deciding that someone who has wronged you does not have to pay. If we are ready to forgive someone, it helps us to look back at times when we have been forgiven. It is good to remember that someone was able to forgive us when we have made mistakes, and that actually can make it easier for us to forgive others. It is important for us to think about how good we have felt when we have been forgiven, and, also, how good we have felt when we have forgiven someone else. This month ask your family and friends about times that they forgave others and about times that they themselves were forgiven. Some books you may enjoy reading on the topic are Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes, Under the Lemon Moon by Edith Hope Fine, Gone From These Woods by Donny Seagraves, and The Year the Swallows
Came Early by Kathryn Fitzmaurice. Have a wonderful March!
