This week and in the weeks to follow we will be learning about the Season for Non Violence. The Season for Non Violence is a time to celebrate the lives of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi, and their goal to make the world a more peaceful place. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi were known for their focus on seeking solutions that were safe, respectful, and responsible. They created positive change through their words and actions and inspired individuals, including students, all over the world to be peacemakers. In honor of this Season, each week you will be learning a new concept that reflects the spirit of the Season, and you will be asked to take on a challenge that will help you to be an everyday peacemaker at your school and in your community.

And...This week we will be focusing on Integrity. Integrity means being strong and able to do the right thing even when nobody's watching. Your daily challenge this week is when faced with a choice today, ask yourself, “What is the right thing to do?” Remember, it’s the choice where no one will get hurt or in trouble. Then do the right thing, even if no one is watching.
Pledge: 

And today we have ... from Mr. Smith'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 remember that when you are in the hallways, in the office, or in the library, you are quiet and respectful of those students who are doing their best and working hard on the MAP Tests.

Also, those of you who are taking the MAP tests, remember that you need to slow down, read the questions thoroughly, and try your very best so that you can reach the goals set by you and your teachers. Remember that when you do well you feel good about yourself, so always SOAR when taking your tests and do your best. 
 
Thank you very much 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.
