Last week we reviewed staying safe at school. Are you staying safe in these last few weeks of school? I hope so. This week we will concentrate on owning our school and acting responsibly, two very important things to do as we get closer to the final day of school. What do you think owning our school and acting responsible means? Well, I think it means to make sure that we are taking care of equipment that we use, the books that are lent to us, and that we are careful to pick up after ourselves, and f we do these things it shows that we have pride in where we go to school, and when you have pride in where you go to school many times you do better in school. What do you think?

This week for the Season For Nonviolence we are celebrating:

Way of the Week, week 6 - Believing Mahatma Gandhi said, “Men and women often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. 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.
