State Farm "Like a Good Neighbor" Program - Third Grade

State Farm would like to recognize 10 boys and 10 girls each month. The criteria are simple: attitude, attendance, and academics. Selection is left to teacher discretion. Monthly recipients would be called to the Atrium where they will be met with Winthrop players, coaches, or Mr. Big Stuff. The presentation will take only about 15 minutes.

Presentation Nov. 19


Guidance Corner

November – Self-Discipline

Exercising control according to what you think instead of how you feel at the moment. Work hard to be in control of your words, actions, and manage your emotions. Set goals, make plans to achieve them, and stay on track. Commit to a goal and make plans to achieve it. Self-discipline is doing your best in all situations.
