January Virtue - Self-Control
Principal's January Message:
Our virtue for the month of January is: Self-Control.
Students will be taught that Self-Control is also called Self-Discipline. It's getting yourself to do what you really want to do, rather than being tossed around by your feelings like a leaf in the wind. With self-control, 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. You can further support these teachings at home by reinforcing the following signs of success in showing self control:
Ø I can control my behaviour so others don't have to
Ø I can get things done and have order in my life
Ø I create routines that bring peace to my day
Ø I do what is expected without others having to watch over me
Until next time,
Mrs. Tracy Wagner
