GROWTH MINDSET: WITH TIME AND EFFORT I CAN IMPROVE!
Hello Quashnet School Community,
we think about Martin Luther King., Jr., and his life’s focus, we have to think
about our children. We want their world
to be one in which each person is treated fairly and with respect. We, as parents and educators, must model and
teach the behaviors we expect from the next generation who will grow into our
citizens of tomorrow. No one is perfect,
and we hopefully learn from our mistakes.
Dr. King wanted a world where his children would be judged by the
content of their character not by their skin color. We need to take the time to get to know a
person before we make assumptions about that person. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Welcome and celebrate the diversity that
makes life interesting. Value each
individual for the quality human being that he/she is. When we interact with students who may have
made a poor choice, we always emphasize the importance of their choosing to be
a person of good character. What can be
learned? The journey to adulthood is
taken one step at a time.
Quashnet’s 2014 Popcorn Fundraiser
Another PTO-related note: The Quashnet PTO has various PASTA fun shapes still available for individual sale. Please contact Amy Rullo at 321-663-4797 if you are interested in purchasing.
Our 2014 Popcorn Fundraiser will run from January 8 – January 22, 20l4. This is a great way to purchase delicious popcorn and to support student activities at the same time. The air-popped popcorn contains no artificial flavoring or coloring and sells for just $5.00 per bag. Eleven delicious flavors are available. A flyer, order form, and collection envelope went home with each student on January 8th. The top seller at each grade level will receive an order-out lunch with a friend (local restaurant of winner’s choice). The overall top seller also wins a $50 gift card (winner’s choice of vendor). Links are included below for the flyer and order form. Please encourage your extended family, neighbors, and other friends to purchase some delicious popcorn and support activities for our students. As always, we are very grateful for the support our school receives from our families and our community.
