Announcements for Fri. 2/26/2021

Jenny the Jet video

Good morning CLMS!  This is Jenny the Jet ready to start your day!

So wherever you are, please rise for the Pledge of Allegiance and, then, be seated for a moment of silence.

Thank you and TGIF, Jets!

Let’s get started with our Black History Month quote for the day! 

Our quote today is from Rosa Parks who sparked the Montgomery bus boycott by refusing to give up her seat to a white man.  She said: 

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear. 

Rosa Parks knew she was right and her mind was made up.  She bravely stood her ground even though she was afraid.  She realized that standing up for what is right made her ignore her fear.  Today, be brave and stand up for what is right even though you may be afraid.

And now for the announcements.

Hey, JVs! Continue to Be present, Be involved, and Be productive.  We know it’s tough being virtual but you can do it!  Remember to reach out to your teachers or guidance counselor if you need help!

As always, we will keep reminding all Jets, our F2F and our JVs to Wear your mask, Wash your hands, and Watch your distance wherever you are.  We want everyone to remain safe both in school and off site!

Reminder to all that video and written announcements are posted in Schoology/Groups/MCL All Staff and Students under Resources so you can access any of the links mentioned.  They are also posted on the CLMS website.

Hey Jets! Here are the latest student involvement opportunities and library news!

And by the way, today is Tell a Fairy Tale Day! Today is a great opportunity to read a fairy tale.  We all know that everybody loves a good fairy tale.  To qualify as a fairy tale, a story does not have to begin with "Once upon a time.....". But, they usually do. It is a requirement that the story has a happy ending. There's nothing better than a good story that ends with "and they all lived happily ever after".  On Fairy Tale Day, cozy up under a blanket and read "the good book," AKA...a fairy tale book. There’s the old classics like Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood as well as some newer ones like The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs and After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again.  What is your favorite fairy tale?  Whichever one it is, take time today to read one to a younger sibling.  I’m sure he or she will love you for it!

That concludes our morning announcements.  And as always...make it a great day or not, the choice is yours!
