Good morning Greenville Middle School!
Today I would like to point out Mr. Hash’s Spartan STRONG Choice Board for Week 9. Mr. Hash started these choice boards with the idea of the importance that we continue to be Spartan STRONG no matter where we are. He has been posting a weekly choice board with different ways to demonstrate the STRONG traits. You can find the choice boards on the district website under the middle school page. Here is a link to this week's choice board - Choice Board Week 9
The theme of the Choice Board this week is Offer Empathy and Acceptance. My favorite part was in the Choice Board room and clicking on the poster of the brain and the heart (clue - it is above Mr. Hash in his lounge chair.) Once you click on it up comes a Sesame Street clip on what empathy is. Nobody is told old for Sesame Street. There is always a good lesson to learn from the characters of Sesame Street and it is always done in a very positive and happy way. Take a look!
With the 5-week interim progress reports coming out tomorrow, 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 Google Meet times or reach out to them with an email.
Enjoy the beautiful weather and have a great day!
SELF-RESPONSIBILITY - Learning From Mistakes
Making mistakes is a natural part of being a human being. We all do it, whether we are a street cleaner or a world leader, a teacher or a student, a young person, or an old person. It’s another one of those things we all have in common. We all make mistakes.
Now listen to what Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, great American writer, and speaker, says about mistakes.
A mistake is not something to complain about or to be ashamed of. It is a great teacher.
The fact that you realize you have made a mistake means you’ve already learned something. You’ve learned what not to do in the future. Today, take responsibility for the mistakes you’ve made in the past. Take a moment to think about them and what you learned from them.
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!
