7 Mindsets

The mindset for November is Attitude of Gratitude. The Attitude of Gratitude Mindset teaches us the importance of seeking the positives from every experience and being thankful for all that we have. Through this mindset, we learn that we can use the positives or the negatives of our lives as the foundation on which to build.

Backpack Buddy Program

Many children rely on school meals for breakfast and lunch during the week but go home to little or no meals on the weekends.
