Dear Blue Ace Families,
It is appropriate that the next Portrait of a Graduate competency we highlight is Empathetic.
As a reminder, our Portrait of a Graduate is the sum of our Values combined with what mindsets, skills and dispositions we want our students to possess after their tenure within Granville Exempted Village School District.
We define the Empathetic competency as:
- A Blue Ace demonstrates an understanding of the perspectives and needs of others.
- A Blue Ace examines the impact of external influences on beliefs and behaviors during interactions with others.
- A Blue Ace maintains an open-minded approach to new ideas or values.
Sometimes we need to be reminded to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes…to gain some wisdom or understanding from another’s perspective or experience. I hope that was the case last week and will continue to be for our students and families.
We will highlight Blue Aces being Empathetic on our social media channels this week and beyond. Please watch for the next competency highlight in a couple of weeks. We are Learning for Life!
Your partner in education,
Superintendent, Granville Schools
