Instead of...

...I'm not good at this - try thinking what am I missing?

...This is too hard - try thinking this may take some time and effort.

...I can't make this any better - try thinking I can always improve and will keep trying.

...I can't do math - try thinking I'm going to train my brain in math.

...I made a mistake - try thinking mistakes help me improve.

...It's good enough - try thinking is this really my best work?

Senior Throw Back!

Quote of the Day

When asked if my cup is half full or half empty, my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup. ~ Sam Lefkowitz

FCCLA Membership Drive

Another fun group for students to join! Thank you FCCLA for the dress up week membership drive, allowing students from all grades to participate. Each day had its own theme. Student winners for best dress had wonderful sur"prizes" given to them at the pep rally last Friday. Elementary winner for Athlete Vs Mathlete, Kindergartner Gavin Barrett, said he was "Going to get 10 slushies" with his winnings.


Chapter Officers have worked hard to plan a fun year! FCCLA will be launching the first service project this week-"Lollies for Little's" Each lollipop is $1 and all proceeds from September sales will go to St. Jude's Children's Cancer Foundation.

It's Fall Ya'll!

Autumn 2018 in Northern Hemisphere will begin on Saturday, September 22 and end on Friday, December 21, 2018.

Friendly Reminder

*All students in grades 7-12 have the 2018-19 $35 laptop insurance due please.

*Pep Rally is no longer at the end of the day. It is now during advisory period on Friday's. (2:20-2:50) Parents: For your child's safety, please send note to teacher in advance if you will be taking your student after the pep rally. This gives the teacher a chance to have the student prepared. If this is not possible, the student will need to return to class after the rally and regular check out procedures will apply. Thank you for your understanding.
