The Positivity Project

The week of December 17-21, we will be focusing on the character trait of self-control. Check out Jeff Bryan's Blog: Self-control which includes how self-control can positively influence both individuals and groups. He shares the story of Lindsey Vonn, World-Champion skier, on how self-control helped her return from numerous injuries and achieve success.

Lakeshore Middle School Behavior Matrix

Below is our Lakeshore Middle School behavior matrix that we have provided for our students and staff to have a common language around expected behaviors. I encourage you to have conversations with your students regarding these expectations. Our focus on self-control this week highlights the "take care of yourself" row of the matrix. Topics of discussion could include keeping your hands, feet, and belongings to yourself and not involving oneself in the matters of others.
