Words by Wildoner
  Thank you Mr. Proactive, Mr. Reactive and Begin with the End in Mind girl for teaching us how to be Proactive. We learned that if it's out of our circle of control, we let it roll. When you are proactive you focus your time on things you can control; your mood, your actions, your words. You can't control what other people say about you, the weather, or if someone is unkind so you let those things roll.  Ask your child if they should be like a bottle of water or a bottle of coke!
This month we will focus on the first habit; Be Proactive.  Each classroom will be looking for examples of students being proactive to add them to our Leader board.
