Good evening from Strawberry School. This is Principal Wilson with your weekly message.
We hope you are all staying well during these uncertain times, we know it is not easy! We appreciate everyone's positivity and good attitude during this time, we couldn't make it through without the support we are getting from each other. We are getting better at this distance learning thing, but we continue to show grace during a time which didn't even exist to any of us a month ago. Please remember that the work we are sending out is for students are not meant to be overly difficult, and you as the parents have the ultimate say in having your student complete the work. If your child is struggling with anything please don't hesitate to reach out to us for guidance, assistance, or help… WE LOVE HELPING YOU AND YOUR STUDENT!!!

Strawberry School’s Toolbox: Tools for learning, tools for life
April – Apology and Forgiveness Tool: I admit my mistakes and work to forgive others.
A sincere apology opens the door to self-responsibility and forgiveness. It takes self-esteem and
inner strength to admit a mistake and do the right thing. Using the Apology Tool is a giant leap
towards maturity. Forgiveness takes equal strength. It requires letting go of anger and judgment.
It does not mean we have to forget, but there must be a willingness to forgive. If we are still
holding the hot ember of anger, resentment, or hatred, we are the one still getting burned.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. Go Eagles!
