This week we are going to review S-O-A-R. Remember S means to stay safe, O own our school, A act responsibly, and R respect everyone; and if we do these things, we will feel good about ourselves and we tend to do better in school.

Hippocrates, a Greek physician of the Age of Pericles, and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine, said, "Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least to do no harm."

Pledge: 

And today, we have Jonathan Chavez from Mrs. Johnson'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

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

Also remember to always stay safe on the playground, around our school, and 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.
