Character Trait of the Month

February’s character trait of the month at AV was Problem Solving!  “Step Up” is the phrase used in AV’s SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) curriculum, Second Step, to help remind kids of the 4 steps they need to take in order to be successful in problem solving!  You can practice these at home, too.  In March, we focus on Friendship!
