WHAT ARE YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS?  

 

LET'S THINK ABOUT SETTING SOME NEW GOALS FOR THE REMAINDER OF OUR SCHOOL YEAR!

 

REFLECT UPON THE BOOK, WONDER!

 

“MR. BROWNE'S SEPTEMBER PRECEPT:

WHEN GIVEN THE CHOICE BETWEEN BEING
RIGHT OR BEING KIND, CHOOSE KIND.” 
― R.J. PalacioWonder

 

 

“If every person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary - the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God.” 
― R.J. PalacioWonder

 

BEST WISHES TO ALL OF YOU 5W FOR A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!  ENJOY YOUR TIME OFF TOGETHER.  BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!   

 

Remember to study for the spelling bee!
