    The Lady Bug Club
     
    I am Pleased to announce that Mountain Villa School is running a club for girls, in grades K-1, titled: "The Lady Bug Club."  The club will run once a month during recess.  The students will have opportunities to develop interpersonal, communication and social skills that may better help them develop lasting relationships with each other both know and as they grow.
     
    Areas of Focus:
     
    Listening Skills
    Cooperation
    Handling a Bullying situation
    Using Manners
    Inclusion vs. Exclusion
    Expression of Feelings
    Leadership Skills
    Avoiding Gossip and rumor spreading
     
    I will be using an abundance of varied resources, as well as allowing the girls opportunities to complete "hands on" activities and group crafts.
     
    If your child is interested in joining this club, please contact me at: jprofito@aes.k12.nj.us
     
    Thank you,
