Milk and Cookies with Mystery Readers!

This year our Milk and Cookies event will take place over the week of March 15th-19th! We are adding a twist to Milk and Cookies event by hiding the identity of each reader and providing clues about who they might be. Each day this week a Google Slides presentation will be shared with students through the SS March is Reading Month Schoology page. Each slide will contain 3 clues related to a mystery reader. Your family will have the opportunity to reveal the clues one at a time and try to guess who the mystery reader is. Once you've made your guess, you can reveal the mystery reader and enjoy their Milk and Cookies video. Grab your cookies and milk and let the guessing begin!

Habit #4 - Think Win-Win- Everyone can Win!


What this means: Think about others as well as yourself. Long-term relationships require mutual respect and mutual benefit.

“When conflict arises, I look for third alternatives.”

“I balance courage for getting what I want, with

consideration for what others want.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. Live by the Golden Rule- Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.
