What an empowering author visit during yesterday’s Day to be Brave event! Author and illustrator Angelique Monet inspired our Lower and Middle School students to write, create, and — most of all — to believe in themselves by letting go of the fear of failure!! By the end of the session, our children were emboldened to step outside their comfort zones and bravely commit to something new! Ms. Monet displayed interactive props to help students understand visually and physically that when we feed the worries that live in our minds, it actually brings them to life.
Angelique showed our children how to push past negative self-talk in order to achieve their personal goals within school, sports, art, music, self-image, and self-esteem. Everything we want to achieve is right on the other side of fear!! #WeAreBrave #WeAreFamily #WeAreNCCS
