What is Compassion?

Compassion:  sympathy, showing concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others, caring, and having empathy.

What is a school of compassion?  What would that look like?  What would that feel like?  What would that sound like in our school community?  These are the questions that we as a staff have been asking ourselves.  What if we taught our students to be compassionate?  What if we did a better job of modeling it as a school community?

As we look at our community, our country and our world we can see examples of compassion and we can also see a lack of compassion.  Bullying is not only a concern in our schools but our society.  It is more than a bullying issue.  It is an issue of character and hearts.  This year we are embarking on a journey to teach our children compassion.  It does not stop there, you see our students seem to have a good idea of what compassion is, listen and let them teach us all.

Sunshine House has opened it's preschool at Loma Vista with priority given to Loma Vista families.

This program is unique in that it is open during regular school hours only.

Down syndrome Connection visits Loma Vista

Ms. Cardamone and Mrs. Jondahl classes hosted Jennifer and Eli Cooper.  Jennifer and Eli talked to the 1st and 3rd grade classes about Down syndrome. Together they shared their book they coauthored explaining Down’s syndrome "Through Eli eyes". Eli talked about Down syndrome being a part of him but not all of him. Together they shared and asked students what they can do to support their friends. How we are more alike than we are different. Mrs. Jondahl's class tried talking with one another with a marshmallow in their mouth. Students got a sense of the frustration of not being understood. The students shared ideas about how to be a friend, and how to help one another. It was great seeing the students compassion and sharing it with one another.

Thank you Jennifer and Eli Cooper !!!
