Gatesville Intermediate

Week of May 9, 2022

May Character Theme: Perseverance and Self-Discipline

Perseverance means to work towards a goal, even when it's hard.

Self-Discipline means to think before you act and to make good choices

Talking Point

Your teacher assigned a huge project and you are feeling overwhelmed. He/She has it broken down into small steps for each day, but it is so big overall, that you are having a hard time getting started. What should you do?
