Enthusiasm (Triton Trait of the Month!)

Enthusiasm is putting your whole heart into what you do. Whatever the task, no matter how big or small, it will always turn out better if you put your whole heart into it! A great thing about enthusiasm is that it's contagious! Your spark of energy and excitement can ignite others to live their lives with enthusiasm.

Its also important to remember that enthusiasm is be more than just showing energy and excitement. It is also represented by a passion for a cause or project. One does not have to be the life of the party to build enthusiasm. By treating even the smallest, insignificant jobs as important, paying attention to details even when the newness wears off, and aiming to be an encourager to others, we build relationships and share enthusiasm with everyone around us.

In the weeks to come, be sure to nominate students for Triton of the Week who exemplify these traits of Enthusiasm.

Vaping and Lean Drinks on the ELM Campus

Be aware that we suspended several students for bringing vaping devices on campus as well as drinking a concoction known as Lean. The drink contains cough syrup with a mixture of soda and different flavorings (gummy bears, juice, etc.). We need to be mindful about sending student out on passes during class. The vaping devices can be concealed as USB drives or even pencils/pens/cards. We will be sharing a vaping video with the students shortly.
