Good morning Greenville Middle School!
Please remember that you all are expected to participate in your learning each day. The learning opportunities the teachers are providing you do allow you to work at your own pace and absorb the content.
Remember that during distance learning we will not be using numerical grades. Instead, you will receive one of three options: Evidence of Learning (COMPLETE), Working Towards (WORKING), and Not Yet Learned (INCOMPLETE).
I really hope you all are taking on my challenge to you and that is for you to receive a COMPLETE for all your assignments. In order to meet this challenge, it is important for you to make sure if you have questions to attend your teacher’s office hours or reach out to them with an email.
Have a great day!
TAKING ACTION - Making A Difference
Today many of us experience a sort of powerlessness about the problems in our world. We don't really believe we can make a difference. We say to ourselves, "I'll do something about that when I'm older, or when I have more money or when I have more time."
The truth is, when we wait for all the right circumstances, we usually have a very long wait, and in the meantime, our problems don't get solved. Here's some really good advice about making a difference in your family, your school, and your community. This advice came from former president Theodore Roosevelt:
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Today, look for ways to contribute. Commit a random act of kindness. Offer to help a teacher. Do an extra chore at home. Remember, you don't need to wait or make excuses. You can make a difference right now.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Reeve reminding you to Be Kind, Be Responsible, Be The Best You Can Be. The choice is yours. Have a great day!
