Box Top Collection Time
Start clipping and collecting your valuable box tops! Each one earns the Gregory PTA 10 cents and adds up to valuable items for students and the school! The collection starts NOW and ends Friday, February 16! Students can deposit the box tops in the marked boxes in the Gregory front office, lunch room, or with their core teachers. Help us hit our goal of $1,000 this year!
Power of Choice - February
Communication is a powerful tool. It can be used to encourage someone and make them feel good. Our words have great power to influence others’ feelings. This month’s Parents Use Your Power newsletter provides a strategy to remind our children to T-H-I-N-K about what they are going to say BEFORE they say it.
By speaking in different ways, we can influence the listener’s understanding of what we say. Use this month’s PowerTalk to review the attributes of different types of speakers and learn how Word Power can influence the effectiveness of our communication skills.
