Our Essential Pieces

Yesterday we came together in an assembly to talk about why it is important to be Kind and what it means to be Kind.  There was good discussion about practical ways that we can show kindness to one another.  We also talked about what it means to belong and that each and every one of us matter at Bakersfield.  The image of a puzzle was used to make this point come alive.  We are all individual and unique pieces to the bigger puzzle of Bakersfield and each of us is essential to the whole.

Students had an opportunity to decorate their own puzzle piece with items and ideas that represent who they are.  These puzzle pieces will be displayed around the school and will be used for a number of different activities.  Thank you for your support of the work we are doing at school – families are also essential pieces in what we are doing and in supporting the growth and learning of our children.
