Mental Health Words of the Month: Every month here at Bancroft we will be focusing on different mental health themes. In October, we will be concentrating on KINDNESS. Throughout the month of October, we will be practicing little bits of KINDNESS with some activities here at school and it will change every week.  Be sure to ask about it when your students get home.  How did they practice kindness?  Did they see any kindness at school?   


If you would no longer wish to receive the Blast please respond with a “Remove me”.  If you know someone that would like to be on our email list have them send an “Add me” message.
