Today is DAY 6

June Theme - June’s “T.A.K.E.S. P.R.I.D.E.” theme is “esteem building.”


Quote of the Day – This week’s quote is from Dr. Seuss.  As we enter the final full week of school, it is good to remember some advice from Dr. Seuss, “You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.  You’re on your own.  And you know what you know.  You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”  Deciding what you want to do is the first step in accomplishing your goals.  Do not let life happen to you.  Meet life head on.


From Mrs. Pletz – Mrs. Pletz’s CP1, CP2, CP3, CP4, and CP6/7 should meet at the library door today.
