Saint Patrick's Day is widely recognized and celebrated throughout the country. It is named after Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland and is observed as a celebration of Irish and Irish American culture. Celebrations include prominent displays of the color green, massive feasts, religious observances, and numerous parades. The holiday has been celebrated in the United States since the late eighteenth century.

Challenge #2: Be Responsible
What is responsibility?
Responsibility is the state of being able to be
reliable, dependable, answerable, or accountable for
something within your power, control, or management.
The students are to select 3 missions out of the 6 available to be turned in by March 14th.
Keep encouraging them to get on Edmodo and talk to their Lead Dawg coaches, we love it! Many of your students have already let us know what missions they have chosen to accomplish. Some of the missions include designing their own superhero, showing how to be responsible around the house, and creating an acronym for "responsible." We cannot wait to see what they come up with!
“Accept responsibility for your life.
Know that it is you who will get
you where you want to go, no one
