Thought of the Week
Trust is like a glass vase. If you break it, it is hard to rebuild. Wildcats, it is good to maintain people’s trust in you, for it is hard to regain once it has been lost.
Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage Month. This is a time to celebrate and bring awareness to the history and importance of Native people. Did you know that the three largest Native American tribal groupings are Cherokee, Navajo, and Latin American Indian tribes? And there are 175 different indigenous or tribal languages spoken in the U.S. today. If you are interested in learning more about Native American culture and history through literature, Mrs. Fout has books on display in the Media Center.
Last Thursday was Veterans Day. Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
International Day for Tolerance
Tomorrow is the International Day for Tolerance. This day emphasizes the dangers of intolerance and is a call to action for the advancement of human welfare, freedom and progress everywhere. It is also a day to encourage tolerance, respect, dialogue and cooperation among different cultures and people. So tomorrow and beyond, please encourage tolerance within yourself and others.
This quarter, Mrs. Fout will be hosting a reading challenge called Book Bingo. Reading challenges include reading a biography, reading the first book in a series, or reading a book set outside the U.S. Each time you complete a bingo square challenge, you earn a stamp. There are two ways to get entered into a drawing for a prize – by completing a bingo on the card or getting any six squares stamped. The prizes are a $20 gift card to Cover to Cover book store, and two $10 gift cards to Half Priced Books. The reading challenge will fcinish at the end of the second quarter in mid December. If you’re interested, come pick up your bingo card in the Media Center today!
