From Miss Amber

We are jumping into April and as we head into testing next month I wanted to tackle self-esteem, focusing on how we feel about ourselves and what makes us great!   The higher self-esteem and self-worth our students have the more confident and positive they will be, and our school will be in turn. Here are some links for age appropriate videos:


Will. I. Am. sings a catchy song in this video to encourage students to think positively about who they are.



In this video, students will hear from other kids about what confidence is and why it’s important. These kids are full of practical explanations and advice students will love.


The song in this video encourages students to remember that they are good! Students will love the social media pictures in this music video as they begin to feel proud of themselves and who they are.
