Today is Day A
A reminder today is Character Ed day. Today’s focus asks, “what does it mean to be humble?” Here’s one definition to think about from C.S. Lewis: “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” Thanks to Mrs. Acciarito for sharing. Have a great day and remember to BE KIND to each other.
The library is closed during all Guides today. Please do not send students down for Guides. ~ Mrs. Cassidy
