"Win the Day" at Cerro Villa

The Viking Culture this year is to "Win the Day". We challenge all students and staff to pick 1 goal each day to accomplish. When you have succeeded with that 1 goal, you have "Won the Day!"

Here are a few ways to "Win the Day"

  • "Flip the Script" on struggles/challenges and make them successes!
  • Follow "Kaizen" - strive for continuous improvement each day!
  • "Be Kind" - smile, say hello, look out for your fellow vikings! Remember - everyone is going through a battle we may not know.. Be Kind Always!
