Daily Announcements for Thursday – May 18, 2017

Today is DAY 6


May Theme - May’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “dependability.”


Quote of the Day This week’s quote is from General Omar Bradley.  General Bradley said, “Dependability, integrity, the characteristic of never knowingly doing anything wrong, that you would never cheat anyone, that you would give everybody a fair deal…character is sort of an all-inclusive thing.  If a man has character, everyone has confidence in him.”  Dependability means following through on our commitments, doing what we say we will do.  When we are dependable, others can count on us and we can count on ourselves.
