Be a dose of Vitamin C

Did you know- The Flu is not the only thing you can catch at work. Turns out you are just as likely to catch someone’s bad mood and negative attitude. Yes, the latest research demonstrates what we’ve all known to be true, emotions are contagious. Researchers call them emotional contagions and they impact our work environments, productivity, teamwork, service and performance in significant and profound ways.

According to John Gordon (The Energy Bus), you can be negatively contagious or positively contagious. You can be a germ and attack our school's immune system or you can act like a dose of Vitamin C and strengthen it.

So the next time you head into work, stop before you walk in the door. Choose to be healthy right there, decide to be positively contagious.

You are forever contagious and you and your emotions impact the world around you. Thank you for spreading your positive vibes!

Positively yours,


We've received lots of positive feedback about our Class Meetings! Great job teachers! We will be announcing our class with the highest attendance this week!
