“The thing always happens that you really believe in, and the belief in the thing makes it happen." -Frank Lloyd Wright
I pay attention to what I tell myself
- What is your self-talk about school, homework or siblings? Does your self-talk make you feel better or worse? If you change your self-talk to something more positive, what would it sound like?
Not All Masks Are Created Equal:
All of our students and staff are required to wear face masks while on campus. Neck gaiters, bandanas, and valve masks are not allowed per MCDPH guidelines. Please make sure your student has a clean mask that fits over their nose and mouth each day that they come to school. We appreciate your cooperation! ~Nurse Danielle
