Mario Day - a day to celebrate the main character of the popular Nintendo video game franchise, Super Mario.

On This Day in History:

Remember that this is The Season Of Non Violence, this week we concentrate on Way of the Week - Week 4 – Kindness
And... on is Friday, try to do three kind things for others. 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.

We've also talked about respect in the cafeteria, computer lab, and library. Remember it is important because when we are respectful in these places, it shows that we care about ourselves, others, and our school...so don't forget to be respectful.
