Silver Springs Staff Cookie Exchange

It’s time to spread some holiday CHEER to our deserving SS Staff…

The SS PTA Hospitality is hoping many of our generous and kindhearted families will bake/make or bring in cookies or treats for the SS Staff Cookie Exchange on Wednesday, December 18th. This is such a BIG anticipated event for the staff. They are so appreciative and thrilled when this day comes to get to bring home some baked goodies to their families. Please see the Sign Up Genius link for more details.

7-Habits Take Home Activity for December

This month’s Habit: Habit 2 Begin With the End in Mind

Activity: Gantt Chart

Due Date: December 20th

Habit #2 Begin with the End in Mind- "I have a plan"

What this means: Have a mission, a clear sense of where you want to go. Think about the end first- how are you going to get there?

“I plan ahead and set goals.”

“I do things that have meaning and make a difference”

“I am important part of my classroom.”

“I look for ways to be a good citizen.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Write down your goals. It is said that "A goal not written is only a wish.”

2. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow the night before.

3. Write down 3 goals you want to accomplish.
