Don't Miss the Best

"If you never did you should.
These things are fun,
and fun is good."

Seek First to Understand

The conversation started with the reading  of this article in the latest edition of
Scholastic News. 


They couldn't understand why 
African Americans were not
allowed to eat in restaurants with
white customers.  After all this happened routinely, long before they were even born.   

One boy summed it this way:  
"If we took the skin "off"of you or
I, of anyone at all..... we'd still be human
beings.  So there really is no difference."
Best lesson of the day.....maybe of a lifetime.
Seek first to understand, 
then to be understood.

February's Community Cafe

We're making choices to 
 improve ourselves, from The Seven Habits.
We're trying to put 
our habits to use each day.  
It's not hard when we have encouragement!
Our teachers help each of us by giving
 support & include everyone
 when our classes make decisions. 
Thanks to all, for your support!

We know that each member
of our squad is good at something.
It means listening & learning
from our teammates & both coaches.
Congratulations to 
The Lawrenceville Braves, 5th & 6th 
grade student athletes on a third place
finish @ their tournament this weekend!

Love is playing every game like it's your last."

Sharpen the Saw

We all know
that balance feels best!  
We learn in lots of ways and
 places, in addition to what's gained at school.
Serving others with
 projects that The Lawrenceville 
Boy Scout Troop is involved with?

Begin with the End in Mind

Improve those skills?
Yes because we plan ahead,
set reading goals,  and strive to meet them.  
Getting rid of that "apple," oh yes!

Be Proactive

A load of "goodies" checked out from
Wesley in our Media Center 
during Fifth Grade Specials, yes!

Let's see:  fiction, poetry, autobiographies....a little bit of everything in tow, back to our room.

We do the right thing without
being asked, even if no one is looking.

Think Win-Win

We know everyone can be a success!
"It's sunny out there
with a chance
of happiness!"

Lovely weather we're having!

We're a dedicated squad.  
What does that mean?  
We cooperate with one another
& get ideas 
from our coach as well as 
teammates.  That helps everyone improve.
 Congratulations Lawrenceville Braves-
5th and 6th grade players with Coach 
David Conner.  The squad won their
tournament on Saturday February 
11th by defeating Robinson and going
onto the final victory over Marshall.

Sharpen the Saw

We take care of ourselves
with exercise, healthy
foods, and getting plenty of sleep.  

Balance feels best!

Be Proactive

Standing in the hallway 
one morning, these pupils heard 
the beginning of The Pledge of 
Allegiance over the intercom.

Right away, they joined in.
We do the right thing without
being asked, even if no one is looking.

Tell the Story

Someone born on the
same day of the year as you?
That's your "birthday buddy!"
We age not by years, but by stories.

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Think Win-Win

We want everyone to be a success.
Not just one person, every person!
It's what love "looks like,"
when you feel connected and happy.
It's not just a one-person job
yet the results are truly beautiful!

The Moment Took My Breath Away

Last month Miss Jackie Evancho sang
 our National Anthem on January 20th
during the Inauguration of the 45th
 President of the United States.    
So did all the youth in Angie Grimes'
third grade classroom, spontaneously.

We can all learn something from each other.
 Working in groups helps create better
than what one person can do alone.
