But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning.” By telling yourself you can’t do something, you are cheating yourself out of the opportunity to succeed. If we really want to see a peaceful change in our school and in our community, we need to BELIEVE that we can. Daily Challenge: Sometimes it’s hard to believe we can be successful, especially if something is challenging. Sometimes, we need help to believe. Today, let someone else know that you believe in him or her even if they don’t seem to believe in themselves. Tell them, “You can do it! Don’t give up!”

And...this Friday, believe we can all contribute to a peaceful world by wearing something white.

Way of the Week, Week 4 – Kindness
Plato said, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” What he meant by this is that we should always treat people with kindness because we never know what kinds of things they are going through. Maybe they don’t have enough food to eat or a place to sleep. Maybe their families are fighting. Maybe someone they care about is very sick. Your kindness can make a huge difference in someone’s day. Be kind not because you expect to get something in return, but because you want to make the world a kinder place through your actions.
Daily Challenge: Do three kind things for others today. Help pick up trash at lunch or carry someone’s books. Ask your teacher if he/she needs help with anything. Help your mom or dad with chores at home.
