Good morning everyone! Happy Monday- middle and high school students should go to their live CORE classes today. . Staying motivated with distance learning is tough...Lets all be focused on the future and envision that day when school can be in person again!

The inventor Thomas Edison once said, “Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. ... There are two types of people: those who fear failure so they never try, and those who fear failure so they never quit.

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. To use Edison’s words, it is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. The staff at CMS/CHS is here to help you find your spark. Reach out and join us.

If any of you 6 or 7th grade students are a little down because of not having any electives, Art Club President Madelaine Hahn invites you to join our new art club. Meetings are held every Wednesday from 2:00-3:00PM. If you wish to join, email Ms. Bigelow for an invitation. This club is just for fun and social time together. Our club motto is “when you mess something up turn it into something even better”.

Mrs. Dix is looking for middle school students to join Coupeville Middle School’s Yearbook elective. It starts on December 8th and meets on Tuesday & Thursday from 1-2 pm. If you are interested in joining this elective, please email Mrs. Dix, so that you can be placed on the class list. Then watch for an invitation to the CMS Yearbook Google Classroom.

Attention 8th Graders - we are having a 8th Grade Bingo even on Thursday - make sure to check your email for your invite.

You have been asking...and the Daily Announcement Daily Question Daily Prize will be back this week! I had a parent with a 3d printer make some Among Us stuff...and you can win it starting next week! Pay attention to announcements!

CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:

This one is courtesy to Heidi-- Wanna hear a joke about paper?

Nevermind, it’s tearable.

Words of Wisdom...

This is Mrs. Johnson with a few words of wisdom.

This goes out to all of you who take life too seriously. You know who you are.

It's so easy to get caught up in negativity and seriousness. A person can start to feel really weighted down . . . like she's carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders.

You might remember the story of Peter Pan. It's a story that is loved by people of all ages. Why do you suppose that is? Maybe it's because all of us . . . from time to time . . . wish we could fly away from life's problems, just like Peter Pan.

Flying away usually isn't the answer. Someone once said that:

"Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly."

Maybe that was Peter Pan's trick! So lighten up today! Look for the good in yourself and others or you might wind up permanently grounded.

With something to think about, this is Mrs. Johnson. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
