Your Monday root word of the week is: lab which means: work. This Latin root appears in many English words such as:  collaborate - to work with a person; elaborate - to work out the details; laborious - requiring a lot of hard work.

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: Freedom Dday:  “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.” - Samuel Adams

 

 

 

Mindful Monday Moment - That was Portugal the Man with “Live in the Moment.”  This is the theme of your Mindful Moment of the week.  A great deal of mindfulness centers on the idea that it is important to focus on the present and not be overly concerned about the past and future while you are practicing mindfulness.  As the song says, “Let’s live in the moment.”  Try to spend time today simply just appreciating your surroundings, focusing on your breathing, and being as present as possible.  This is a great technique to stay relaxed and improve your focus and performance.  Let’s all live in the moment.

 

Wednesday Wellness Wish - That was U2 and “Pride.”  This is the theme of your Wellness Wish of the week.  It is so important to take pride in all that you do and in who you are as an individual and as a community.  I know that the boys' lacrosse team took a lot of pride in their accomplishments this season even though their journey came to an end last night.  I know that you will all take great pride in your academic accomplishments as final and Regents exams are upon us.  I know that the seniors will take great pride in their time here at PMHS.  I know the staff takes great pride in all that they do to make this such a wonderful school.  Pride is an amazing driving force.  Try your best to harness its power and you’ll be amazed at where it can take you.  Principal Clark and I are both extremely proud to be a part of this school community.
