Our Top 20 Quote of the day…We can develop the Star Quality of courage whenever someone else has an opinion that’s different from ours.  Can you think of someone else’s opinion that might cause you to feel anxious or uncomfortable?  We often let other people’s opinions control our lives.  That’s not a good habit to get into.  That’s why we need courage.  See other people’s opinions that are different from yours as an opportunity for developing courage.

Keep looking up.

Our Top 20 Quote of the day…We’ve been focusing on the Star Quality of courage.  Sometimes the fear of failing gets in the way of our moving outside our Comfort Zone and trying something we’d like to do.  Remembering that failing and making mistakes are ways by which we learn and grow might help us be more courageous and move outside our Comfort Zone.

There is no school on Monday.  Enjoy the long weekend!  Don’t forget to wear your PJs to school Tuesday!

Our Top 20 Quote of the day…We have lots of opportunities in school to develop the Star Quality of courage.  Maybe it takes courage to raise your hand in class to ask a question.  Maybe it takes courage to talk to a student you don’t know very well.  What is something that you’re experiencing in your life that requires you to be courageous?

Our Top 20 Quote of the day…One of the most important Star Qualities you can develop is courage.  Courage doesn’t mean that you’re never afraid.  In fact, it means you are afraid but act in spite of your fear.  That’s what makes you brave.  Who is someone that you think is courageous?  What did they do even though they were afraid?

There is a delayed start TOMORROW school begins at 10:00 a.m.

Shout out to MAdi for hitting the ball!

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day so get your Valentines something.

Our Top 20 Quote of the day…One thing that gets in the way of persistence is DFLIs.  DFLIs stands for “Don’t Feel Like It.”  Sometimes there are things that we don’t feel like doing.  What’s a DFLI for you?  Maybe it’s homework.  But by doing your homework, you’re developing persistence.  You’re also developing responsibility.  So, by doing your homework, you’re developing two Star Qualities at the same time.

Our Top 20 Quote of the day…Some things come easy in our life; some things don’t.  Sometimes we need to keep trying in order to accomplish something or get better at it.  We need the Star Quality of persistence.  Persistence means sticking to something until we’re successful.  We need persistence in school.  Learning can be hard work.  Most of us don’t learn everything right away.  What is an area in your life where you need to be persistent?  What is something that doesn’t come easily?  Something you’ll need to stick with or practice again and again in order to accomplish?

Good luck at Pine Island today Academic Triathlon teams!

Our Top 20 Quote of the day…Yesterday we talked about the Star Quality of being outgoing.  One way to be outgoing is to be interested in other people and their lives.  We can do this by asking people questions about themselves:  How was your game last night?  What did you do over the weekend?  Think of a way you can be outgoing today by asking someone a question about themselves.  By being outgoing others will want to be your friend.
