FROM SELF-DISCIPLINE TO STEWARDSHIP
Please Read Religion Commissioner Araceli R.'s Poignant Reflection On Self-Discipline
Over the past two months we have been celebrating and working to improve on this value. The meaning of self-discipline is self-control. It means getting yourself to do what is important and staying on task to reach your goals. Hard work and dedication are large parts of self-discipline. Self-Discipline determines our success, maybe more than any other value in our lives.
There are multiple ways to work to improve our self-discipline every day. The first step we can take is to focus on our work in class, rather than giving in to the distractions around us. We can show our self-discipline by being a leader in our class and our community. When we do not follow the crowd and make our own path to do the right thing, we can be examples of self-discipline. We can help others to improve in their self-discipline by becoming examples of great self discipline. Teaching by example is a great way to spread our values to others.
Devven G. is a great example of self-discipline in our school. Devven has shown great acts of self-discipline in the fourth grade class this year. Whenever somebody is trying to get someone else in trouble or is being mean, he tells them that they should be nicer to other people. Also, when others may be distracting, he focuses on the task at hand and tries to resolve the situation. We can all learn from Devven, and many other students in our school, on how to live lives full of self-discipline. Let’s all try to continue to grow in this value throughout the year. Thank you for time and have a blessed day.

An Insight From The President Of College Board
Thus, rather than doing sporadic participation in a number of activities, it may be more advisable for students to commit to fewer activities in a more engaged manner for a longer period of time.

I wanted to thank Mr. Daily for recognizing my efforts for the Red & Black Ball, I am honored.
