As we continue talking about safe routes to school, we must remember that when walking to and from school we need to be responsible. Be aware of the area around you, communicate where you are at all times to an adult, report dangerous activities, obey traffic signals, and crossing guard or safety patrol directions.

John C. Maxwell, an American author and speaker said, "The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Leilani and Shanelle from Mrs. Moreno-Hall's  class to lead you in the pledge.  Now, please stand...Put your right hand over your heart, ready begin...

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. 

Special Announcements

Please make sure that while you are in the office or library you are quiet and respectful of students taking MAP tests and SBAC exams.

Also remember to please stay out of planted and landscaped areas around school because we want our plants to grow!

Finally, remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, on your way to and from school.
 
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
