January Virtue - Self-Discipline 

Principal's January Message:

Our virtue for the month of January is: Self-Discipline.  Students will be taught that self-discipline means self-control.  It is getting yourself to do what you really want to do, rather than being tossed around by your feelings like a leaf in the wind.  You don’t lose control of yourself when you feel hurt or angry, but decide how you are going to talk and what you are going to do.  With self-discipline, you take charge of yourself.You can further support these teachings at home by reinforcing the following signs of success in showing generosity:

  • I speak and act calmly when I am hurt or angry.
  •  I get things done in an orderly, efficient way.
  •  I create routines for myself.
  •  I do what is expected of me without people having to watch over me.

Until next time,

Mrs. Tracy Wagner
