Mashburn Minute

Mashburn Elementary Oct 16, 2015

This month's mindset is.....Attitude of Gratitude! Thanking it forward

One guaranteed way to feel better and become happier is to do something for someone else. One of the most powerful things you can do for someone is express gratitude for who they are and what they have done for you. Thank YOU for all you do for our students and for making Mashburn a fun place to come to work everyday. Work is hard but you make it a happy place. I hope your weekend is RIDICULOUSLY amazing and that you unplug for just a bit and take some time for yourself!
