Good morning Greenville Middle School!
This week I will be highlighting our students who were recognized as Students of the Month and Spartan Strong Students selected by their grade-level teachers from February - May. These students will receive a certificate that will be mailed home. Congratulations to these students!
Students of the Month for April were selected by grade-level teachers for showing excellent academic effort and responsible, respectful behavior.
Spartan Strong students of the month for April were selected by grade-level teachers for being positive role models for Growing Together.
Make it a Spartan STRONG day by Taking Action of your learning. With a week to go in the school year, 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. If you have all Completes (C), great job! Keep up the great work!
Have a great day!
THE POWER OF WORDS
Asian-Pacific-Americans have contributed richly to all facets of American society from education and culture to literature and philosophy. Now listen to these words from famous Asian-American writer Amy Tan:
I spend a great deal of time thinking about the power of language - the way
it can [stir up] an emotion, a visual image, a complex idea, or a simple truth.
Words in any language can help, or they can hurt. They can tell the truth, or tell lies. Words can create wars or peace. Words can teach us how to love, or how to hate.
Today, pay attention to the words you hear, read, write, or speak. Think about the power they have in your life and in the lives of those around you. Ask yourself how you are being influenced by language, the way you use it, the way others use it, and the way words influence our daily lives.
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!
