Learning from Mistakes and Appreciating Others

Dear 7th graders,

Making a bad choice does not define who we are as individuals; it is our actions afterwards that demonstrate our true character. By the same token, acknowledging the goodness we see in others encourages us to share our own gifts.

In order to grow as a person, you need to acknowledge the mistakes you have made and appreciate the good things you have in your life. This apology / thank you letter is an opportunity to reflect on your choices, grow in your moral development, and build the courage to act for the common good.

If you were sitting at the lunch table closest to the stage during the spaghetti lunch on Tuesday, December 10, please review the assignment sheet for the Formal Apology letter. Your double-spaced rough draft is due Thursday, December 12, 2019.

If you were sitting at any other table at lunch on Tuesday, December 10, please review the assignment sheet for the Formal Thank You letter. Your double-spaced rough draft is due Thursday, December 12, 2019.

The final hand written draft of your letter is due Friday, December 13, 2019. It is worth 10 points in Language Arts.

Sincerely,

Ms. Rzegocki and Mr. Tice
