Nurturing Positive Connections: Fostering Healthy Relationships in November

Hello, HEB Guardians and Students!

As the busy month of November graces us with its presence, we embark on a journey dedicated to the art of fostering positive connections and relationships. This month, we'll explore the magic of building meaningful bonds that enrich our lives, from friendships that light up our days to family ties that provide unwavering support, and beyond. Join us as we delve into the heartwarming realm of nurturing healthy connections, enhancing our well-being and spreading positivity throughout our lives. 

At HEB we honor the student's passion in exploring different interests which also provides opportunity to generate new friendships. As student grow and change so do their friends and relationships. This means continuous guidance and support through conversation regarding positive words and actions to each other. We have adopted the language of, what does it "feel like," "sound like," and "look like." Teachers will be completing this activity in their classroom this month. This fosters clear expectations and is easily modelled throughout our staff.
