Red Rocks Reflections November 2019

Kindness and Correction: Red Rocks is fortunate to have a positive climate for adults and students alike. Our school is generally filled with kindness each day. One of the side effects of working with such kindness is that students can grow to expect explanations for adult directions prior to complying. In a setting of almost 300 kids we often have to move promptly, such as in line or to lunch. We are asking students to “obey first, ask why later.” We remind students that in sports, asking the referee “why” during the game doesn’t always end well. We thank our families for supporting our staff with the same expectation. 

Speaking of Kindness: I dressed as a moose for our Halloween parade this year. The character is inspired from the children’s book, If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff.  I’ve always enjoyed the theme of kindness demonstrated in Numeroff’s books. Dr. Glass recently posted a message on civility and I know our community will support that message. One of the strengths of Red Rocks is our kindness. I’m grateful for families like you who model kindness-such as being patient in our small parking lot!  Go Raccoons! (and Moose!) --Mr. I
