First-Graders Share Be3 Knowledge with Community

Bronxville Elementary School first-grade students, who have been researching, writing and illustrating books about their school’s Be3 program, shared their knowledge with younger students in the community.

Kathryn Westerheim’s class visited students at the Reformed Church Nursery School on Oct. 20, where they read their authentic books and shared what it means to be safe, responsible and respectful to one another outside of the classroom.

“The students enjoyed reading the Be3 books they wrote,” Westerheim said. “They had a sense of importance going out into the world and teaching others what they have learned.”

Bronxville Elementary School’s Be3 program promotes three expectations that teachers and administrators have of students throughout the school – be respectful, be responsible and be safe. The program was adopted last year as an approach to character education to ensure each student thrives in a positive learning environment.

The visit gave students the opportunity to engage with the world outside of their classroom, which is a skill closely aligned with the dispositions of the Bronxville Promise.
