HABIT #5 - SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD

When we practice this habit we try hard to use empathetic listening, an ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. Examples of empathetic listening are putting yourself in someone else’s shoes or giving the speaker time to think about what he or she wants to say without interrupting them.

HABIT #6 - SYNERGIZE 

When we practice this habit we try hard to compromise with others and to try to come up with a plan that is better than anyone in the group already had in their mind. This helps us to value the difference, creativity, and diversity of other people.

HABIT #7 - SHARPEN THE SAW

When we practice this habit we make the time and space we need to continue practicing healthy habits. This lets us develop a good balance of finding time to rest and to eat nourishing food in between the duties we may have with school, sports, homework, family, and friends.

NEWS FROM CENTRAL SERVICES:

We continue to monitor COVID rates in the county. We are pleased to see data is reflecting a low positivity rate in Floyd County at this time. Part of this success is the continued use of mask coverings for our Charles City Schools family. We continue to follow CDC guidance and request people on our campuses wear an appropriate face covering over their nose and mouth. Our main offices continue to have face masks available in the event you need one. Thank you for encouraging your student to take proper precautions in this COVID season.
