VARSITY FOOTBALL IS AT HOMER TONIGHT
Reminder: Tonight's Varsity Football game at Homer has been moved to 5:00 pm due to EEE concerns in Calhoun County. Under the new guidelines, we will be allowed to have 2 spectators per pass (4-per athlete). Coaches will be allowed 1 spectator per pass (2-per coach). Please arrive with the person that will share the pass to prevent any confusion. Spectators must still wear a mask and maintain appropriate social distance from others. The game will be live-streamed on Facebook @HomerTrojanAthletics to accommodate those that are unable to attend.
Further, the Pink Jug is at stake tonight. Both teams are working to raise money in support of fighting cancer. You can help the football program fight cancer by supporting the Concord Football 2020 Pink Jug Project Drive by donating or sharing https://vraise.org/VIaNFS we will split all funds raised 50/50 between the football program and a donation to help with the fight against cancer.
CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO AFFIRM OTHERS AND LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES
Elementary YellowJacket Trait of the Week
Social-emotional learning addresses the very important skills our students need to be top-notch YellowJackets. The skill for this six weeks is self-awareness. Inside the area of self-awareness, this week's focus area was being confident. Having grit means having the passion and perseverance to work towards goals until they are accomplished.
Throughout this week, the elementary school students were given challenges and learning opportunities around self-awareness and having grit. See the video below for this week's YellowJacket of the Week. Next week's trait is I have a growth mindset.
Our middle school YellowJackets worked on resilience and growth mindset this week. They did an amazing job with their Challenge Activities. The activities and challenges that match the middle school focus can be found inside their Intervention class in Google Classroom. Next week the Be A Good Human Trait or skill is to continue demonstrating resilience and a growth mindset.
