Good morning Greenville Middle School!
Keep up the great work with your remote learning! I know it is not easy some days but continue to be Spartan STRONG and Take Action for your learning.
Students, just a reminder 5-week interim period ends this Friday, May 15th. It is important for you to make sure if you have some Working Towards (W) as a grade that you redo and resubmit the assignment. If you have any Incompletes (I) please complete and submit them. Please reach out to your teachers if you have any questions.
Students if you are interested in helping New York State with coronavirus, they are looking for videos that demonstrate why it is so important to wear a mask in public. The winning video will be used as a Public Service Announcement. Please click on the link for more details if you are interested. Videos must be submitted by May 15th. https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/node/2871
Have a great day!
When most of us hear the word discipline, we think of being punished or restricted or going to detention. But guess what - the word discipline comes from a Latin root word that means “learning.” So how did we ever go from discipline, meaning “learning,” to discipline, meaning a punishment? Well, we do learn from consequences, right? (Which is, by the way, what’s known as “learning the hard way.”)
So, what’s the easy way? The easy way is to choose to be self-disciplined...to be a self-learner...to look around and learn from others. Remember what Confucius said:
I can always be certain of learning from those I am with. There will be good qualities I can choose to imitate and bad ones that will teach me what I need to correct in myself.
That’s what self-discipline is all about. Today, choose to be a self-learner and discipline yourself.
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!
