Sharing Smiles

Wednesday we had our monthly assembly. I enjoy this opportunity to connect with students on a different level. If you are interested, here is the link to the presentation I shared with the students. I shared some MAP results with the students to continue our discussion about goal setting, but I also talked about being kind with one another. I especially like the first video, and I think the students did, too.
