Monday Memo

March 2,2014

Thought for the week.....

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” Haim Ginott

20 Things We Should Say More Often

Special Friends

Mrs. Moye is trying to allow some of her special friends to walk to different classes more independently. If you see one of her friends in the hall, rest assured that someone is close behind them. Just remind the student to go to Mrs. Moye's class.

Thanks for the prayers!

Stephanie and her husband made it to Oklahoma. Zachary was released from the hospital! He is doing well except for some pain.
