Staff Challenge for Perseverance


Your “Yet” Goal


What’s a habit that you want in your life, but haven’t quite mastered yet? Research suggests that it takes at least 21 days to set a new habit into motion, and that takes Perseverance. This week’s challenge invites you to think of a habit you want to change, share that intention with an accountability partner, and commit to working on it for 21 days this month.

Thank you for the hard work you do each day to help kids grow!
