This Thursday is Thanksgiving. This is a time of gratitude: You can show your
gratitude in many ways. This is a great time to email a teacher, counselor or staff
member and let them know that you appreciate all they are doing to help you do
well in school.
Since you will have four days off this week - please take time to look over Google
Classroom, Skyward, Amplify and other educational programs you are using to
ensure that you are completing your assignments and also getting caught up with
missing work. Remember that teachers will only have office hours this week on
Tuesday so make sure to stop by and get that extra support.
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
Why can't a nose be 12 inches long?
Because then it would be a foot.
Now for our Words of Wisdom on gratitude from Mr. Smith.
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom from famous Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran:
"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
Gibran isn't telling us to stop donating our old clothes to charity, or canned goods to a food drive. These things are important. He's saying that the highest form of giving is when we give our time, talent, and energy to those in need. And we are all capable of giving something. We can tutor a younger student, help an elderly neighbor, or do an extra chore at home. We can give time to someone who is lonely, or a smile to someone who is sad. According to Gibran, this is the highest form of giving.
Today, be generous and share yourself with others.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
