We Are Connected
At our house meeting this morning we talked about being 100% Accountable and choosing to take responsibility for your own happiness and success. One way you can think of 100% accountable is taking ownership of your life. Do not allow the things others do to you and opinions they have of you matter more than your own thoughts toward yourself. Begin the process now of owning all aspects of your life and actions, taking responsibility for your situation and every moment of your life from this one onward. Do this, and you will be in control of your life and destiny, rather than allowing others to control them. Do not allow anyone to steal your joy!
5th Grade Movie Night
As part of our “Live to Give” House theme, Mashburn will be holding a Shoe Drive for children and adults in Africa until April 18th. If you have outgrown your old sneakers, cleats, shoes, or flip flops (house shoes/slippers are not accepted), please drop them in the large red tub located in the lobby. Our goal is to collect 800 pair of shoes. The shoes will be shipped to Africa by Love Thru Shoes, an organization founded by a Forsyth County high school DECA student. By donating your shoes, you will help Mashburn be connected to Africa….one pair at a time.
Help Needed in Kindergarten
Are you looking for a way to give back? The kindergarten team would love your help! We need parents to volunteer to come in for the last two weeks of March to work with small groups of kindergarten students on sight words, phonics and reading activities. You do not have to be the parent of a kindergartner to help! Please go to the Sign Up Genius to find a day and time to help. Together we are better!
Blessings in a Backpack
We are collecting canned soups for families in need whose children receive food each week in a backpack through the Blessings in a Backpack Program. This program was started and is managed by students at Lambert High School who wanted to make a difference in the lives of younger students in Forsyth County Schools. Thank you for your support of this valuable program!
