"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence!"  ~Vince Lombardi  

"Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts.  This is the secret of success!" ~Swami Sivananda

One activity that I conducted with my students last year was "Are you Smarter than a 4th Grader."  I brought in community members to share knowledge with the students about their own careers and then the individual faced a class of fourth graders to see if he/she is smarter than the fourth graders.  If this sounds like something you'd be able and willing to participate in, please let me know.  This year we will play Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader.  I am very excited for these kids to keep their successful record!
