Principal's Weekly Memo- September 16- September 20, 2019

Montemalaga Elementary School

Weekly Memo

September 16-September 20, 2019


For the entire month of September we are working on earning the S in SOAR—spread kindness.  Our first SPIRIT day is September 27—I am looking forward to having so many students earn Golden Feather Certificates during the assembly. 

Character Trait for September:  Confidence

            Our own confidence often involves knowing when there is a situation that we can only control how we react to that situation.  Our reaction is related to how confident we feel about ourselves.  This week think about reacting with confidence and understanding. 

Thank you…
