As we continue with the Season of Non Violence, this week we will focus on way of the week, week 5 - Smiling
Mother Teresa said, “Peace begins with a smile.” As you begin your work to create a more peaceful community, think about the difference your smile can make. A smile doesn’t cost anything but can mean everything to someone who is having a tough time. It is an easy way to spread happy, peaceful feelings to everyone you meet.
Daily Challenge: Today, share a smile with at least three people knowing that your smile contributes to peace.

Pledge: 

And today, we have _______________________ 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.

Interested in Science...well, on Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00 in the MPR our teacher candidates from Cal State University San Marcos will have Science Night, so make sure to tell your parents, come by, learn something new, and have fun because science is cool!
