This month Lincoln School is focusing on the hard character trait- Bravery. Bravery means facing your fears. We are discussing bravery in school through our books and actions. We are encouraging students to try something new and to think about a skill they want to learn. We also want to teach students to be brave and stand up when something is wrong. Parents can share how they may have overcome a fear or stood up to help another person.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” –Nelson Mandela
