Principal's November Message:
Our virtue for the month of November is: Peacefulness
Students will be taught that peacefulness is an inner sense of calm in quiet moments of reflection or gratitude. It is getting very quiet and looking at things so you can understand them. Peacefulness is a way of approaching conflict with others so that no one is made wrong. It is being fair to others and yourself. Peace is giving up the love of power for the power of love. You can further support these teachings at home by reinforcing the following signs of success in showing peacefulness:
I use peaceful language even when I am angry
I speak gently and respectfully
I avoid harming anyone
I find peaceful solutions to every problem
Until next time,
Mrs. Tracy Wagner
