Month of mindfulness

In the month of December we are focusing on positive self-talk.Positive self-talk makes you feel good about yourself. It's like having an optimistic voice in your head that always looks on the bright side. Start your day with statements such as “I am capable of anything,” or “I will give it my all today”

Clubs are here!

Clubs are ready to start! Click here to see the schedule that will show you when and where clubs will meet. Also listen carefully to morning announcements for reminders and important information about clubs.
