With today being the start of Thanksgiving week it seems fitting to have our focus be saying thank you to others.  Think about the people in your life who have made a difference, maybe in big ways or even in small ones.  And think about the way you’d like to say thank you.  You could write a note, make a card, give chocolate, or just say thank you.  But be specific about what you want to say thank you for.  Has the person been extra kind or been a good friend?  Has the person been influential in your life?  Has the person gone out of his or her way to be caring to you?  Tell them.  Think about this quote:  Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone!

Attention CTC students:  CTC instructors have professional development this Friday.  There will be no CTC classes in the AM or PM on Friday.

We’re continuing Be Nice November this week by focusing on Random Acts of Kindness. Doing good deeds adds meaning to our own lives, even though it seems like the point is to add meaning to someone else’s.  In fact, studies have shown that usually the kind person has a bigger boost of positive emotions even than the receiver!

Every day this week, 35 students will be given a Random Act of Kindness card 1st hour. Those 35 students will perform a random act of kindness, put a tally mark on the back of their card, and give the card to the person who they did a random act of kindness for.  That person will then repeat the process by performing a random act of kindness, adding a tally mark to the card, and passing it on.  These random acts of kindness don’t have to be big things.  If you’re not sure what to do, check the hallways for posters with lists of random acts of kindness ideas.  At the end of the day, we’ll make an announcement asking any student who has a random act of kindness card to return it to the office.  Teachers can play, too! At the end of the week, we’ll announce how many random acts of kindness were performed!

Any student who is taking more than one day off for hunting must have an intended absence form filled out and returned to us before you go.  We must have a note or a phone call from a parent before we can give you the intended absence form.  Every teacher and a parent must sign it and it has to be returned to the office before you go.  Hunting days do count towards your 10 days you are allowed per semester.
