Teacher and Staff Custom of the Week
I hope you found ways to uplift your fellow staff members this week. We all need uplifting, so let's all work to find ways to do this often.
Our custom for next week is:
Choose to be HAPPY.
We all have days that we just have to choose happiness when we feel grumpy, frustrated, less than, negative, and short tempered. Our students will directly benefit from our choosing happiness day in and day out. :-)
Colt Custom #2
Discuss this custom with your class and expect your students to answer you with ma'am and/or sir. For many of our students, we will be the only adults teaching them to use manners in this way. This is an extremely important Colt Custom!
