Principal's Message

The Gift of Generosity

​Principals Message – December  2018
We have had a wonderful first term here at Killarney School!  Our days have been filled with so many learning experiences and we continue to make Joyful Connections.
Some upcoming highlights at Killarney include our Upper Elementary students attending the Nutcracker Ballet, A Gingerbread Holiday family night, and 2 spirit days:  Holiday Sweater Day and Pajama Day. 
Our focus virtue this month is Generosity and we felt it to be an appropriate one during this festive season.  We have a tremendously generous school community where parents, volunteers, and staff continually give the gift of their time which is the most valuable gift of all.  The many wonderful events, programs, and field trips would not be possible without the support of many and we are thankful.
We continually encourage a spirit of generosity in our Montessori classrooms through an understanding of others.  Children learn to think beyond themselves when they develop relationships with peers and adults. The joy of friendship fosters empathetic thinking as children recognize their own happiness can be grown through giving to someone else.  Generosity is not just a virtue but a way of being when a child exists in a community of care at home and school.
Ways we can support our children to grow as generous people include:
·        Allowing children to work through conflicts in a respectful, empathetic way  - how do you think the other person feels? What might be a good resolution that would be ok for both of you?
·        Setting limits - this is neither authoritarian or restrictive.  Being realistic and having children recognize there are boundaries is healthy and expected
·        Recognize when your child is generous with his/her time and feelings
·        Engage in conversations about how “giving to others” makes you feel inside
·        Be a model of a generosity
We want to wish you a very restful Winter break and hope you are able to enjoy the generous time with family and friends!
With Gratitude,
Bonnie Caldwell and Christine McCrory​
