Morning Announcements

Friday– October 26,  2012


Good morning, Morgan.    We have a lot of teachers here at our school, many more than you realize.  There are hundreds of teachers in the halls between classes, and dozens in every classroom.  You see, we have adult teachers and student teachers.  That’s YOU.  That’s right! The truth is that everyone is a teacher and a student.  We are all learning and teaching all the time.  The question is:  What are you teaching others through your words and actions?  Listen to the words of American philosopher Henry Brooks Adams:  A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.  In other words, what we teach others today can influence them for the rest of their lives.  Today, teach others the greatest of all lessons.  Teach them the Golden Rule by treating them the way you would want to be treated.


1.       This Sunday, REACT will be hosting its second annual Haunted Hallways.  It starts at 6:30pm and tickets are $3 at the door.  We hope you come and have a thrilling time!
