Atoms Accept Mrs. Wittchen’s Self-Respect Challenge
Friday, April 9th, 2021—Throughout the month of March, Mrs. Wittchen challenged the 3rd and 4th grade students to participate in an online self-respect and positive self-talk challenge. To participate, students were tasked with writing one kind thing about themselves over a 5-day period. This simple task proved to be very meaningful and the many Atoms accepted the challenge and participated. While participating, the students learned a lot by reflecting and writing what they love about themselves as well as, kind things about themselves. This positive self-reflection helps create not only positive self-image but a positive mindset and a kindness mentality.
Congratulations to all of the 3rd and 4th graders who met the challenge and won counseling awards. In the words of Mr. Rogers, "Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people." Keep up the great work, Atoms you are all worth it!
