This is the last week in the Season Of Non Violence and this week we focus on:
Way of the Week 6 - Believing

Mahatma Gandhi said, “Men and women often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning.” By telling yourself you can’t do something, you are cheating yourself out of the opportunity to succeed. If we really want to see a peaceful change in our school and in our community, we need to BELIEVE that we can.

Daily Challenge: Sometimes it’s hard to believe we can be successful, especially if something is challenging. Sometimes, we need help to believe. Today, let someone else know that you believe in him/her even if they don’t seem to believe in themselves. Tell him/her, “You can do it! Don’t give up!”


Pledge: 

And today, we have______________ from Mrs. Rosales' 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!

And...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.
