COMMUNICATION

Communication is expressing thoughts and feelings clearly and confidently in a variety of ways.

Wise people use their words to spread knowledge. Proverbs 15:7a

Students practice effective communication skills though writing, speaking in class, art projects, music, and interacting with teachers and fellow students throughout the school day.

Daily conversations with children provide excellent opportunities for parents to model basic communication skills. These conversations help to lay a foundation for effective communication later in life. The parent’s goal is to raise a child who converses courteously; who listens to what others say; and who is able to clearly express thoughts, feelings, ideas, and opinions.
