  • The greatest difference between elementary school and middle school is taking P.R.I.D.E.- Personal Responsible in Daily Effort.
  • YOU are responsible for YOU.
  • Life is choices. All choices have consequences. CHOOSE WISELY! Even doing nothing is a choice – and the consequences put you behind everyone else.

    • Good nutrition plays an important part in your academic success.
    • Students who eat breakfast usually do better in school.
