About the Record
Since 2006, each year the WSSA attempts to set a new Guinness World Records Title for “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day." Each year, the WSSA submits a formal application to attempt the record on Guinness World Records Day. Once all organizers and their witnesses submit their verifications after the event, the total count is sent to Guinness for official validation. The number to beat: 622,809!

PISD Police Deptartment - Toys for Tots
Once again, Lomax Middle School is working hand in hand with the PISD Police Officers Association to collect brand new toys for the less fortunate families in our school district. Please help us put a smile on a child’s face during the holidays by donating a brand new toy to the Annual Toy Drive. Donations will be accepted from now until December 14th.
Weekly Parent Connect
You cannot be grateful and resentful at the same time.
Robert Emmons writes, “The basic observation that positive emotions are somehow incompatible with negative emotions is not a new idea and has been demonstrated over several decades. Back in the 1950s, this basic principle of emotional incompatibility provided the basis of behavioral therapies designed to treat phobias and other anxiety disorders. One simply cannot be relaxed and stressed at the same time. Try it. You can’t. Relaxation drives out anxiety or the opposite is true – anxiety will drive out relaxation. You cannot be grateful and resentful at the same time.”
Conscious Discipline Twist:
The idea of offering gratefulness instead of resentment will help next time you are triggered. Rather than continue to push away relaxation with anxiety, simply take a deep breath and find something to be thankful for in that moment.
*This discussion is based on Becky Bailey’s book: Managing Emotional Mayhem and adapted from Larry Slocum’s School Family Minute.
