Hello Mountain Lions!!!
Today was a GREAT day! Our morning started off with a special visit from a member of the Jordan School District Board of Education. Jen Atwood was elected last year to represent our area, and has been such an amazing advocate for the students and families of Majestic Elementary. She came today to meet our students and see what our Monday Meeting was all about, and talked to our students about the great things that she is seeing as she comes out to visit our school.
One of the things that she talked about was our Mountain Lion Pledge. I always love to hear our students talk about our PRIDE values and recite the pledge together. Mrs. Atwood said that she almost got a little choked up during the pledge. She told students that our PRIDE values represent the things that students must do in order to be successful throughout their lives.
We are so lucky to have so many supportive partnerships with incredible people in our school district, and throughout our community. We do our best to be good partners to them too! In fact, just last week, Majestic Elementary received the Community Partnership Award from South Valley Services. This organization was formerly known as South Valley Sanctuary, and provides services for families and individuals who have been affected by family violence. In addition to our school award, several Majestic students were given awards for their participation in a poster contest. We are so grateful to have been recognized as partners with them, and appreciate their ongoing support.
Thank you all for YOUR support of our school and the great work that we are doing every day to prepare our Mountain Lions for a BRIGHT future!
This week’s PRIDE value is: EMPOWERED
Today at Monday Meeting, I introduced our PRIDE value this week. Our Mountain Lion Pledge says, “I am Empowered: I have the ability to accomplish anything I put my mind to, and will not make excuses.”
I wish you could all hear our Mountain Lions say this final sentence in our Mountain Lion Pledge. There is so much energy in the room as we finally say in unison, that we will NOT make excuses! What an amazing thing… Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone in this world worked hard everyday to do the best that they can, and took ownership when they made mistakes? That is what we are trying to instill in our students every day. We all make mistakes, and we all know that we can do better, but excuses takes away our power to control our own destiny.
We have BIG dreams for our students here at Majestic Elementary, and we want them to dream big too! It is important that our students be empowered each day to accomplish their dreams… no matter how big they are!
Today was such a fun day! Mrs. Alder’s first grade class was recognized in front of the entire school for having 9 days in a row with no absences and no tardies! That means that for almost two whole weeks, each student in that class was on time and ready to learn each day. Wow!!! Way to go Mrs. Alder’s class… You are AWESOME!!!
