This week we also talked about respecting everyone in the hallways and sidewalks and now we want to discuss why it is important to greet others with a hello or a good morning; or discuss why it is important to walk quietly through the hallways so as not to disturb classes, so please have this conversation in your classes.

William Arthur Ward, one of America's most quoted writers of inspirational maxims, wrote, "A warm smile is the universal language of kindness."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Kim from Ms. Mulligan'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

Have a very happy St. Patrick's Day and watch out for those Leprechauns.

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.
