Morning Announcements

Friday– November 9,  2012


Good morning, Morgan.  Have you ever had a difficult time going to sleep at night because you did something that you knew was wrong?  The Japanese have a wonderful proverb: Let a man so act by day that he may lie happily on his mat by night.  
The Germans say the same thing in another way:  A good conscience makes a soft pillow.  Is your conscience bothering you?  Do you need a good night’s sleep?  Talk with someone you trust, your mom or dad, spiritual leader, teacher, or counselor.  Tell the person what you did, and let him or her help you decide how you can best mend the situation.  Then, do your very best to learn from your mistake, forgive yourself, and move on.



1.       Seniors:  don’t forget to submit your senior profile and baby picture to Mrs. Robinson by Nov. 15.
