Orca Announcements for January 18, 2018

Orcas, please check your backpacks for bus notes first thing this morning and deliver to the office.  Please send your transportation envelope to the office, even if there are NO notes for the day.

Teachers, please don't forget to pick up your WIN lunches during last recess.

LEADERSHIP:  When you are a good leader, you show examples of many different habits.  We are now going to talk about the third habit, Put First Things First.  When you Put First Things First, you prioritize and do the most important things first.  It is important to be a Good Citizen first.

This week we will observe Good Citizenship/Temperance Day, which was on Tuesday, January 16th.  Each day on the podcast, we will talk about what a Good Citizen looks like and how you can be a Good Citizen too.

On this weeks' podcast, we've talked about our school being it's own community.  Our school community members include students and their families, teachers, principal, counselors, secretaries, para-educators, custodians, kitchen staff, bus drivers and others.  All of these people want their school community to be a safe and friendly place to learn and grow.  In order for this to happen, we need good citizens.  Citizens are members of our community, just like you.

A Good School Citizen shows good character by being honest, dependable, a good listener, being responsible and having courage.  Good School Citizens do the right thing even when it's hard and no one is watching.  Good Citizens are Leaders.  You can be a Good Citizen too.
