The Pennridge School District has undertaken an initiative to reinforce social and emotional learning in our students. Social and emotional learning skills include the ability to recognize and manage emotions; care about and respect others; develop positive relationships; make good decisions; and behave responsibly and ethically.
We focus on one theme of positive behavior each month that promotes social and emotional learning. Every day, students hear a relevant famous quote, followed by a statement to help reinforce the quote. They are encouraged to think about and to practice the monthly theme in their lives, preparing themselves for success in school, in the world of work, and in their personal relationships.
June’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is esteem building.
The definition of esteem building is to honor ourselves or another for having a particular positive quality. When an individual has a high self-esteem, he/she has self-respect and self-confidence.
We esteem others when we have a high opinion and appreciation of them. We can always find something positive about ourselves and others.
This month, practice self-esteem by listing your talents and reasons you or others respect you. Build the esteem of others this month by paying them a sincere compliment or by letting them know how they have helped you.
Building your own self-esteem and that of others will help you to make friends. People respect those with a healthy self-esteem and they will be grateful to those who take the time to help them feel good about themselves.
