18 Feb Each of Us Holds Value
This week we had our monthly staff meeting, and it was a powerful one.
Every month when we have our staff meetings I try to begin and end with an inspirational video and some sort of activity. I want out staff meetings to be about more than just a relay of information. I want us to find ways to come closer together and to have fun.
The past week or two has been especially tough for me. There had been a lot of negative things coming into play that were just dragging me down. And I could sense that some others on campus were facing similar battles. Then I remembered what I like to do most when I’m feeling upset, and that is find ways to encourage others. And then I remembered how perfectly that would fit into our motto of being a Choose2Matter School. Hence, our idea was born.
Everyone came into the faculty meeting and found their seat based on where this paper below was sitting. They weren’t given any instructions other than sit where I’ve placed your name. It was printed in color and on cardstock. Then each person was given a different colored sharpie marker.
Take time today to share your gratitude with someone. Call your parent, send a note to a sibling, FaceTime with your niece or nephew. Just find time today to remind someone of the worth they hold in your life. It can make all the difference.
