MONDAY: NO SCHOOL Memorial Day
Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formally known as Decoration Day. Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women who died in any war or military action. Landmark would like to thank all those who serve our country each and every day.

Social Skill of the Month- MAY
ACCEPTING CRITICISM or a CONSEQUENCE
Look at the person
- Remember that eye contact shows respect and says you are paying attention.
- Don’t “stare down” or glare at the person.
- Maintain a pleasant facial expression: avoid frowning or making faces.
- By saying, “Okay,” you communicate understanding. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you agree though.
- Answer right away and speak clearly; avoid tone, whining, or pouting.
- Using nonverbal cues that show understanding like a “thumbs up” or “okay” hand signal are okay.
- If you react negatively, you may make the situation worse.
- Use self-control strategies (taking deep breaths, counting to 10, using positive self talk, reminding yourself of negative consequences if you argue, etc.) that will keep you from becoming overly emotional, angry, or frustrated.
If you disagree, ask later.
- Plan how you will approach the person, including what you will say.
- Accept his/her answer, even if it is still “No.”
- Thank the person for listening.
Remember each day of the week we focus on a different School Wide Expectation “The Code of Honor”
